Activision will release Call of Duty Modern Warfare content earlier to PlayStation 4 players, just like they do with Black Ops 4 at the moment, despite the announced crossplay support. The updates will be seven days exclusive to PS4.

New Call of Duty game from Infinity Ward and Activision was officially revealed yesterday. Named simply Modern Warfare, it's a re-imagining of the original series, a soft reboot that includes some familiar characters and locations.

On top of that, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare also comes with a couple of positive surprises. Activision confirmed that traditional season pass won't be included and that the game will support cross-play between PC and consoles.

However, judging by the latest slide from PlayStation, Modern Warfare will still offer content seven days earlier to those who play on PlayStation 4, which will probably disappoint PC and Xbox One players.

Of course, this is a standard practice in the latest Call of Duty game - Black Ops 4. Every content update first arrives to Sony's console and after one week, it comes to other platforms. 

For Modern Warfare, it's a bit odd decision to follow this practice given that yesterday, Activision made it clear that their focus with the new game is to bring all Call of Duty communities closer with the cross-play feature. Furthermore, they emphasized that by saying that lack of season pass will allow all players, from all platforms to play all maps together and get free content in live service updates.

Well, the latest details from PlayStation surely contradict these statements and it's even stranger that Activision decided to continue with this as their contract with Sony expired with Black Ops 4. 

The good thing, however, is that the content will be free and will eventually arrive to PC and Xbox One but still, it still leaves a sour taste, especially after some positive changes that Activision are looking to bring with new Modern Warfare.
