Sony’s exclusivity contract with Call of Duty may not hold back any Blackout content on PC and Xbox One.
Treyarch’s Studio Design Director David Vonderhaar told Game Informer that he is not aware of any platform exclusives in Black Ops 4’s Blackout.
Vonderhaar was asked directly if Blackout would feature any platform specific content and he responded “not that I am aware of, no.”
Call of Duty games typically have all content available on all platforms, though PlayStation has received DLC maps and content 30 days before the other platforms from Black Ops 3 on.
Since Blackout is one map with no near-term plans to add more, PlayStation and non-PlayStation owners might be able enjoy all gameplay related content at the same time.
It is not all good news for Xbox and PC fans, however.
The Black Ops Pass will contain four Blackout characters that may be subject to a waiting period for non-PlayStation platforms.
According to the pre-order page on GameStop, “BOP content may not be available in all countries, and pricing and release dates may vary by platform.”

The pre-order page matches what Vonderhaar said about no platform exclusive content, though the potential varying release dates will not ease the concerns of some players having to wait 30 days.
