With Microsoft having fully completed its acquisition of Activision Blizzard, a number of prominent gaming IPs officially fall under the Microsoft brand — Call of Duty being one of them. The worry for PlayStation fans is that the deal will see an end to these franchises finding a home on PlayStation consoles, however an agreement with Microsoft will keep Call of Duty titles on Sony's platform in the future.
But throughout Call of Duty's history, we've seen plenty of exclusive content and access locked to a specific platform. The recent Modern Warfare 3 beta was split into two weekends, the first of which was exclusive to PlayStation players. Certain cosmetics, such as the Lockpick Operator Pack, have also been restricted to PlayStation. But, according to Phil Spencer, that seems to be coming to an end.
In a recent podcast, Spencer confirmed that they'll be aiming for "100% parity across all platforms" when it comes to Call of Duty. However, Spencer did confirm that there may be exceptions to this, largely where it concerns resolution and framerate differences between platforms, but that there's nothing else.
We have no goal of somehow using Call of Duty to get you to buy an Xbox console.
Spencer went on to say, "I want the Call of Duty nation to feel supported across all platforms. We've been on the other side of some of those skins, and times — even this beta, like it wasn't on Xbox the first week. I don't think that helps the community. I don't think that helps the game."
Call of Duty Modern Warfare 3 launches on November 10, 2023 across Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, and Windows PC.
