Activision and Microsoft Partner for Xbox 360-First Call of Duty DLC for Next Three Years

By Brian Leahy, Jun 14, 2010 10:47am PDT Microsoft senior vice president Don Mattrick has announced that the company and Activision have partnered for the next three years to bring Call of Duty DLC add-ons, including map packs, to the Xbox 360 first.

This matches the release schedule already seen for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 downloadable content, which has launched first on the Xbox 360 then followed roughly one month later on the PlayStation 3 and PC.

This deal covers all Call of Duty titles through 2012, including Treyarch's Call of Duty: Black Ops, which will be released on November 9, 2010 for the Xbox 360, PC, PlayStation 3, and Wii.

  • Comments like those below illustrate why, although the PC is my favorite platform, I will never again call myself a PC gamer. The term now means a whining, sophomoric, self-important loser who believes that because he bought a product from a company five years ago, the company is henceforth their servant and must not dare to pay attention to any other customer. Wake up, people - it's a business, and businesses exist to make money, which doesn't happen if they ignore 90% of their customer base to satisfy the elitist whims of the 2% that are represented by the "F YOU ACTIVISION!" commentary. As for DLC, if you don't like it, don't f---ing buy it, and they'll stop doing it because it doesn't make money. If people DO buy it, that means it was worth it to them, so all who say that "5 maps for $15 isn't worth it" are WRONG.
