Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare – Survival mode seems to be locked away for a year.

It may only be 1% of the total game but Call Of Duty fans are not happy that part of Special Ops is exclusive to PS4 for a year.

For those of you who missed Sonys State of Play event last night it had a plethora of information on upcoming games, but the fact that the Survival mode for Special Ops in Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare was playable first on PlayStation 4 didnt initially cause much of a stir… until everyone found out it was an exclusive for a whole year.

Fans on Reddit havent exactly been thrilled with the news, even though Survival is only one part of the larger Special Ops co-op mode. Its basically a Horde-style defence mode, that proved popular in Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 but hasnt been seen again in a while.

Usually, PlayStation 4 exclusive content for Call Of Duty is only for a month or so and fans are not happy that this is much more, with Reddit user thatOneGuy22 stating that, A new cod game will be releasing when this is out on Xbox and PC.

Despite the recent beta having been generally well-received some fans are up in arms at the news, with a few even claiming they have cancelled their pre-orders.

Developer Infinity Ward is trying to address concerns about the issues, with narrative director Taylor Kurosaki very active on Twitter, trying to answer fan questions and lay out the bigger picture.

You can play Spec Ops and every new bit of content we drop, day one. The only timed exclusivity is Survival, which is a sliver of Spec Ops.

Up to you, I respect your decision. We do our BEST every day to give our players the best experience possible. There are decisions that are above all of our pay grades that have to be considered. I understand your feelings, but this is much better than others I have seen.

Lets be honest, “ruining” is an exaggeration. Survival is 1% of the game. The other 99% is simultaneous day and date across all platforms. Id rather have everyone playing 99% of the content at the same time than 100% of the content some time later.
