Assuming the price is right, Activision couldn't care less about parity between ports. The publisher has managed to piss off plenty of Call of Duty fans by making the game's Spec Ops Survival mode a year-long exclusive for the PlayStation 4, which is bad news for PC and Xbox One owners who want the full multiplayer experience.

After some lengthy outrage on reddit and social media, Infinity Ward's narrative director Taylor Kurosaki pointed out that PS4's Survival mode was just one part of the Spec Ops experience. He also suggested that the choice was wholly Activision's: "These are complicated decisions above our pay grade."

Since 2015, Sony has enjoyed a timed-exclusive, first crack at Call of Duty post-launch downloadable content, picking up that deal after Microsoft offered similar exclusivity for the five years prior. Last week’s announcement made it sound like that arrangement was changing, but the open beta’s two day preview on PlayStation 4, plus an exclusive 2v2 Alpha test on that console, is a reminder that it’s still very much in effect.
 
Kind of interesting timing with the rumors of the PS5 coming out around the time this particular exclusive will end.
 
I really don't see the big deal. It's a timed exclusive. Been happening forever.

You want to bitch? Game on PC when ports of games take a year plus!

Excluding the first CoD release this series releases a new version every year. When the exclusive time period expires the new release will start sucking the player base away. This is not a timed exclusive that has been happening forever.
 
Timed exclusive is basically withholding contents that the user have paid for, and consumers should never support or encourage such behavior.
I wish **** like these are illegal.
