Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare’s Survival Mode will be heading to all platforms, as confirmed by Infinity Ward. The studio’s senior communications manager, Ashton Williams, confirmed via social media that the mode will be coming to PC and Xbox One players.
Survival mode was formerly made exclusively available for the PlayStation 4 community, a decision many were not happy with. Survival mode was originally launched last year as the rebooted Call of Duty: Modern Warfare was released. A year on, the exclusivity period is about to conclude.
Ashton Williams directed players toward an information page for Warzone Season 6, where she confirmed that from October 1, “Xbox and PC players can access Survival Mode.”
Last year, Survival mode was premiered during Sony’s State Of Play live stream. The trailer that promoted the mode declared that it would be exclusive until October 1, 2020. Youtuber Mr.Dalek JD took to social media to voice his own frustrations about the decision, saying: “Imagine not being able to play Zombies for an entire year whilst another platform does… what the heck”
In response to the upset from fans, Infinity Ward’s narrative director, Taylor Kurosaki, responded that decisions had been made which were “are above all of our pay grades”.
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.
