We wrote that Phil Spencer, CEO of Microsoft's gaming division, said on the Xbox podcast that Activision Blizzard games will appear on Game Pass no earlier than 2024. However, the same podcast also contained interesting information about the future of the Call of Duty series.
Here's What We Know
Phil assured that in the future, there will be parity on all platforms for the launch and availability of content. We would like to remind you that this year's Call of Duty: Modern Warfare III beta was initially available on PlayStation, and owners of Sony consoles could get an exclusive costume. This will not happen again. Spencer also noted that there will be some differences between the frame rate and resolution, as the game will always look better on Xbox Series X than on Series S, but this is the only difference that players will find.
We don't have a goal to use Call of Duty to get you to buy an Xbox. I want Call of Duty fans to feel supported across all platforms. Even this beta didn't come to Xbox in the first week. I don't think that helps the community.
So, if Microsoft is to be believed, the next Call of Duty beta will be available to everyone at once, and the concept of "exclusive bundles" will no longer exist for this series.
When We Can Expect It
The new Call of Duty - Modern Warfare III will be available on 10 November on PC, PlayStation 4/5, Xbox Series and Xbox One.
