We dared to dream that Microsoft’s co-marketing partnership with the Call of Duty franchise may have concluded, but that hasn’t turned out to be the case. As already indicated by today’s leaked trailer, the Xbox One and Xbox 360 versions of the upcoming Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare will receive any future map packs and content care packages a month before the PlayStation 4.
This won’t be a deal breaker for long-time Sony veterans, as the Redmond-based manufacturer has aligned its brand with the series several years in a row now. However, with franchise fans defecting to the Japanese giant’s more powerful box, we had hoped that the tides might turn. Alas, that won’t occur with this year’s entry, which is being developed for next-gen formats first by Sledgehammer Games.
If you haven’t seen the shooter’s first trailer yet, you’ll almost certainly want to check that out through here. Set in the future, the release will focus on privately owned armies, as opposed to national ones. Are you agitated by this news about the adventure’s add-ons, or are you comfortable sacrificing early access to play on the PS4? Sound off in the comments section below.
