'PlayStation is the new home of Call of Duty,' says PlayStation CEO on exclusive deal

New, 43 comments

Sony has taken over for Microsoft as far as Call of Duty exclusivity goes, with a new deal that will bring all map packs to PlayStation first from this point forward, PlayStation CEO Andrew House announced today during Sony's E3 2015 press briefing.

The exclusive arrangement will begin with Call of Duty: Black Ops 3, which launches Nov. 6 on PlayStation 4, Windows PC and Xbox One. It is also in development for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.

Developer Treyarch will kick off Black Ops 3's multiplayer beta this August exclusively on PS4.

"PlayStation is the new home of Call of Duty," said House. This is an inversion of a relationship that began with Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare in 2007, where map packs launched first on Xbox.
