During Sony’s press conference at E3 2015, a lot of us were surprised when the company announced an exclusivity deal with Activision, which will see Call of Duty DLC coming to PlayStation platforms first. Speaking to Polygon, Microsoft’s Aaron Greenberg said that he was expecting the announcement, and that there’s “only one box” to play shooters like Call of Duty on.
We were expecting the announcement, obviously we have a great relationship with Activision, we have more people playing Call of Duty today on our platform than any other. And if you think about it, if you’re a shooter fan and want to play Halo and Call of Duty there’s only one box to do it on.
Greenberg further said that Microsoft will “continue to drive a lot of sales” of Call of Duty games on Xbox consoles, and that it will support the upcoming Black Ops 3 just like it would support any other big third-party title.
Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 will launch on November 6, 2015 for the PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, and PC.
