Rumor: Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 DLC Might Not Come Out First On Xbox One

by Damian Seeto


Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 might be the first Call of Duty game in many years that DLC won’t debut on an Xbox platform.

As spotted by VG247, the official UK Xbox One page has a list of several first-party and third-party Xbox One games.

If you scroll through the Xbox One games, first-party games have a green message that says “Exclusive Game”. This banner is on the likes of Halo 5: Guardians, Forza Motorsport 6 and more. It’s not on Rise of the Tomb Raider though, which further highlights its “timed exclusive” status.

Moving along the scale, Tom Clancy’s: The Division has a banner that says “Content First”. This highlights the fact that DLC will be on the Xbox One platform before anywhere else. Microsoft made a deal with Ubisoft to make this happen.

However, the “Content First” treatment cannot be seen next to Call of Duty: Black Ops 3. This could be a sign that DLC will not debut on the Xbox One like other Call of Duty games in the past.

VG247 also highlighted that a preview event for Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 had people playing the game on the PS4 platform. This may be an indication that Sony now has marketing rights to the Call of Duty franchise now.
