In all the excitement over yesterday's State of Play, this little detail almost got away from us. However, the all-seeing internet never forgets, and it rarely forgives. After the action packed new trailer for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, you'll see brief mention of Survival Mode, presumably a wave-based co-op mode within the Spec Ops portion of the first person shooter. Cool, a new mode! Hang on, what does that small print say...
Yes, Survival Mode is a timed exclusive on PlayStation 4. Things like this are to be expected given Sony's relationship with the franchise, but what makes this example stand out is the duration of the exclusivity. The mode won't be playable on other systems for almost a year -- Survival Mode will go multiplatform from 1st October 2020.
Understandably, this has caused a bit of an upset. In previous Call of Duty titles, things like map packs or other DLC were exclusive to PlayStation for maybe a month at the most -- usually just a week. This takes things to a whole new level. A whole mode of the game is only on PS4 for nearly 12 months? Call of Duty 2020 will be nearing release at that point.
