Call of Duty
Will Call of Duty have Xbox-exclusive content under Microsoft?
PlayStation players can get exclusive content in Call of Duty, so will Xbox players get the same after Microsoft’s Activision takeover?
Sony has long had a partnership with Activision granting PlayStation Call of Duty players exclusive content and items, so will there be a similar system if Microsoft’s acquisition goes through?
While Call of Duty has full crossplay support, PlayStation players can reap certain benefits unavailable to those on Xbox and PC. These have included exclusive game modes, early access to betas, more create-a-class slots, Operators, and a new Combat Pack every season.
These PlayStation-exclusive benefits are set to end in 2024, and with Microsoft’s acquisition of Activision Blizzard still awaiting approval, Xbox boss Phil Spencer clarified whether there will be Xbox-exclusive content in Call of Duty.
Will Xbox have exclusive Call of Duty content?
Speaking on the Xbox On YouTube channel, Xbox’s Phil Spencer reiterated that the “same version of Call of Duty” will be available on all platforms, confirming that it won’t have exclusive content similar to PlayStation’s model.
Spencer gave a flat “no,” when asked if there would be Xbox-exclusive content and using Hogwarts Legacy‘s PlayStation-exclusive Haunted Hogsmeade Shop quest as an example, said that there won’t be a “skin on a gun” or a “mode” that’s only available to Xbox players.
“When we say ‘available everywhere’ or ‘not exclusive,’ we want to make absolutely the best version of Call of Duty for any player on any of those platforms,” he explained.
Comparing it to what they’ve done with Minecraft, Spencer said they “want to make sure those players have a great experience on the platform they choose to play on.”
If Microsoft’s deal goes through, they insist that Call of Duty will remain on PlayStation as well as coming to Nintendo and GeForce Now.
With Sony’s Call of Duty exclusivity deal set to end in 2024, CoD 2023 could be the last time PlayStation players get exclusive content before Treyarch’s CoD 2024.
