Modern Warfare 3 to receive 20 DLCs over the course of 9 months
“New content, more often, and with more variety” is the agenda.
Activision today said that its Uncle Scrooge of shooters, Modern Warfare 3 will receive 20 DLC nuggets over the course of the next nine months. What after the ninth month, you ask? You buy the new Call of Duty, dummy!
“With the Call of Duty: MW3 Content Season for Call of Duty Elite, we are delivering on our promise of more new content, more often, and with more variety than ever,” said Activision publishing CEO Eric Hrishberg.
The first DLC nugget is planned for Jan 24 featuring multiplayer maps Liberation and Piazza. Four more content packs will be dropped in the first three months of 2012, with at least one more in Jan, one in Feb and two in March. These five DLCs will also be packaged together for the “entire”, non-COD Elite Premium subscribers. The DLCs, including the content collection, will maintain its timed exclusivity to Xbox 360.
Modern Warfare 3 was released on November 8 and has so far earned Activion a billion dollars, despite being the second most pirated game of last year. I can only imagine the Activision executives like this when they read the report.
