Sony will secure a 30-day platform timed exclusive for Black Ops 3 and its future DLC, with the multiplayer beta of Black Ops 3 launching on the PS4 first. At E3, Sony Computer Entertainment boss Andrew House said that the PlayStation was "the new home of Call of Duty". Under the deal, all future Call of Duty DLC will hit the PlayStation first, which is a big scoop for Sony.

During E3, Activision Publishing boss Eric Hirshberg told Gamespot: "The partnership with Sony was the right decision at this time. They've been a great partner on Destiny, and they have a ton of momentum with the PS4 and really got behind this thing. They wanted to see that deal on their platform. We're going to make it work".
