For what has seemed like an eternity, the Call of Duty series has remained tightly within Microsoft’s grasp, receiving map packs and additional content a whole month ahead of Sony platforms. Now, though, the tables have turned.
With Treyarch’s Black Ops 3 presenting its first multiplayer trailer during Sony’s E3 conference, it seemed like a punch in the gut for Microsoft. Not only do Sony now have dibs on content from Activision’s titles, they also have a strong relationship with EA’s Battlefield and Battlefront series. Not to mention Destiny as well.
Does this mean Respawn Entertainment’s Titanfall 2 will end up favouring Sony as well? Only time will tell, though judging by PlayStation’s solid grip on the market at the moment, I’d say that PlayStation is looking like the place to be for all things ‘shooter’.
Here’s the Blops 3 multiplayer trailer if you haven’t seen it already, and it seems to be taking a few cues from Titanfall.
Black Ops 3 is due to arrive on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, Xbox 360 and PC on November 6th 2015.
