‘There are choices above all of our spend grades’
Through yesterday’s State of Play stream, it was revealed that the PS4 version of Get in touch with of Duty: Contemporary Warfare would have a year-extended exclusivity deal on “Spec Ops: Survival.” A horde-like mode that lets players face off against waves of enemies, its return from Contemporary Warfare three had fans excited ahead of the rug was pulled out beneath them. Now any person not on Sony’s platform will have to wait what is efficiently the game’s well-known lifespan ahead of attempting it out.
Infinity Ward knew this was going to take place, as effectively. Mere hours just after the trailer released, Contemporary Warfare narrative director Taylor Kurosaki took to Twitter to attempt and calm fans and clear the air about the choice. “We do our very best each day to give our players the very best knowledge probable,” Kurosaki mentioned. “There are choices that are above all of our spend grades that have to be thought of.”
Going additional, Kurosaki noted that Survival tends to make up about “1% of the game.” His hope is that fans will have an understanding of that Sony grabbing exclusivity of it does not ruin the knowledge for other players. “I’d rather have absolutely everyone playing 99% of the content material at the identical time than 100% of the content material some time later,” he mentioned. That mentioned, there is nothing at all else in Contemporary Warfare that will be exclusive to any platform.
When I am not shocked at Sony’s grab for content material right here, I am primarily shocked that Infinity Ward is getting so open about the choice. It really is generally been rumored that these exclusivity bargains are mandated by publishers, but I in no way believed I’d see the developer outright saying it. That could not be adequate to quell some fans, but small business is small business just after all. If you actually cannot get behind this, at least know it wasn’t Infinity Ward’s option.
Survival is “a sliver of Spec Ops”, says Get in touch with of Duty: Contemporary Warfare dev, “there are choices above all of our spend grades” [VG 24/7]
