Modern Warfare 2 Xbox Exclusive

Considering Activision's deal with Microsoft won't be completed until mid-2023, it's unlikely that 2022's Modern Warfare II won't be an Xbox exclusive, much to the relief of PlayStation players.

In fact, Infinity Ward's latest offering is being developed using PlayStation consoles so any kind of exclusivity deal could go against any agreement Sony already has in place.

At the moment, it looks like Modern Warfare 2 won't be an Xbox exclusive, which is good news for PlayStation users.
