Microsoft has announced that like with the past few Call of Duty games, the Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare DLC will be a timed Xbox One and Xbox 360 exclusive once again. Although the main game launches on November 4th 2014, based on prior years, the Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare DLC #1 release date is not expected until mid-January 2015.
What “timed exclusive” means is that for the first month after the first DLC Map Pack drops for Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare it will only be available on Xbox One & Xbox 360. Then after one month it will be released on the other platforms: PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3 & PC.
To quote the official COD:AW DLC confirmation: “Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, developed by Sledgehammer Games (co-developers of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3), harnesses the first three-year, all next-gen development cycle in franchise history, and again brings all add-on content first to Xbox.”

Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare envisions a powerful future, where both technology and tactic have evolved to usher in a new era of combat for the franchise. Delivering a stunning performance, Academy Award winning actor Kevin Spacey stars as Jonathan Irons – one of the most powerful men in the world – shaping this chilling vision of the future of war where Private Military Corporations (PMCs) have become the dominant armed forces.
This time around do you want the DLC Map Packs to have all-brand new maps or do you like the mix of original & remade maps?
