European Call of Duty
fans can breathe a sigh of relief today. Infinity Ward has revealed that the Call of Duty 4
multiplayer beta, set to launch on the Xbox 360 later this month, is not a confirmed U.S. exclusive.
A posting on Charlie Oscar Delta
"As for who is eligible for the Beta, there was some confusion caused this week stating that the Beta would be US-exclusive, however that statement was premature, because we have not finalized final details on who would be involved in the beta at this point."
Of course, that still leaves open the possibility that Europeans will be excluded from the beta in the future, but we can rest easy knowing that, for the moment, we don't know.
This comes following a representative from Activision telling us of the beta yesterday
, "I can confirm it's U.S. only." How Activision and Infinity Ward got their wires crossed is still unknown.
