Activision confirms PlayStation-exclusive benefits for Call of Duty: Vanguard

Just like recent Call of Duty installments, PS4 and PS5 owners will get exclusive benefits in Call of Duty: Vanguard.


Activision has had an exclusive marketing deal with Sony's PlayStation consoles for a while now. For example, in 2019's Modern Warfare reboot, Spec Ops' Survival Mode was exclusive on the PS4. Meanwhile, for 2020's Black Ops Cold War, only PS4 and PS5 owners had access to Onslaught while also getting exclusive bonuses like loadout slots and double XP weekends, among several others.

Unlike Battlefield 2042, Call of Duty: Vanguard will have a single-player campaign.

So, it shouldn't come off as a surprise that PlayStation owners will get exclusive benefits for the upcoming Call of Duty title, Vanguard.

What are the PlayStation-exclusive benefits for Call of Duty: Vanguard

Vanguard is Sledgehammer Games' first turn as the lead Call of Duty developers after 2017's Call of Duty: WWII.

Activision recently released a story trailer for Call of Duty: Vanguard, which you can watch below. If you stay until the end, you'll see the words "exclusive benefits" written for the PS4 and PS5. Unfortunately, Activision stopped short of what kind of benefits PS owners will have for Sledgehammer Games' newest Call of Duty installment. However, we can only assume that it won't be anything different from the previous Call of Duty titles.

We also finally have a clue of when the next Call of Duty game is going to release based on the trailer. Because all the exclusive content for PlayStation owners will only last until November 1, 2022, we can only assume that Infinity Ward's Call of Duty game will release by then.

Speaking of, Tom Henderson claims that Infinity Ward's next take on Call of Duty will be released as Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II. After this, the series will go back to a semi-futuristic setting for 2023 with Treyarch as the main developer.
