Having console exclusives are a great way for console makers to try and attract players to its platform. For example games such as God of War, Halo, and Mario have been pretty compelling reasons for gamers to pick one platform over the other. Now it looks like Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 could have some PS4 exclusives.
This is according to a recent tweet (via VG247) from the official Call of Duty account where they are reminding gamers of the upcoming announcement which is set for the 17th of May. The tweet also included a short video in which towards the end, an ad for the Sony PS4 was revealed which has led some to speculate that the game could have exclusive PS4 DLCs, or at the very least timed exclusives.

This means that if the speculation is on point, PS4 gamers can expect to get their hands on DLCs released for the game first for a set period of time before it is released onto other platforms. This would not be the first time we are seeing timed exclusives for consoles so this doesn’t really come as a surprise.
Black Ops 4 is currently set for a release on the PC, Xbox One, and the PS4. However a recently spotted photo has suggested that the game might be arriving on the Nintendo Switch as well, but we guess we’ll have to wait until the 17th of May for all the official details.
