Call of Duty as a brand created nearly half of the top-selling games until now. Modern Warfare is no different. Several sources claimed that the game sold more than any other CoD title before. However, when we are taking a look at the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare we have to look at it as a package. This package contains all the game modes. Players are buying the game from all over the world. Activision has servers everywhere and with the new Cross-Play features you can play with your friends from any platform. But when we are taking a look at the general package we can see that only one specific group has access to Spec Ops missions. This group is the PlayStation 4 owners. We are scared that this thing can happen to the upcoming Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Battle Royale mode.
Currently, there is not even a word from the developers regarding Call of Duty: Modern Warfare release. However, we had our fair share of leaks and have reason to believe that it will come in the future. Season 1 extension is probably to make the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Battle Royale mode ready. The Battle Royale mode will give this game a massive boost. However, sadly there is a chance of the Battle Royale mode becoming a PS4 exclusive. We do hope that it will not but there is that chance.
The reason is very simple, only PS4 owners have access to Spec Ops missions until October 2020. So if we are considering that there is one Call of Duty game every year, this means Spec Ops missions will be under exclusivity deal for the entire game life. Also, Sony might pay big bucks to get this deal. Because recently the whole Xbox Game Pass really made the console wars more intense. So Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Battle Royale exclusivity will make the PS4 much more desirable before the release of PS5.
Honestly, we know that this sounds like a very hard scenario but who would have thought that PC players would not have access to Spex Ops missions also. After the release for an entire month, players asked for the Spec Ops missions but Activision did not even lose sale numbers. We just hope that the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Battle Royale mode will be available across all platforms via Cross-Play.
