[UPDATE] Today at Microsoft's E3 press conference, the company reiterated that Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare DLC will come to Xbox platforms first.

The original story is below.

As we learn more about what will be new and different in this year's Call of Duty game, Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, we've discovered one thing that won't be changing is the arrangement that sees downloadable content released on Xbox platforms first.

Since Black Ops in 2010, downloadable content has been delivered to the Xbox 360 (and Xbox One, in the case of Ghosts) versions of Call of Duty games before coming to other platforms a month later.

Advanced Warfare won't be the game to reverse that trend when it's released on November 4. Mentioned briefly in an Xbox Wire post about the new game (the eleventh main title in the series) is the fact that it "again brings all add-on content first to Xbox." That doesn't clue us in on whether non-Xbox platforms will again be waiting exactly a month for the same DLC, but it seems a safe bet.

The newest Call of Duty was set to be revealed this Sunday, but a number of leaks have resulted in Activision unveiling it early. So far, we've learned it will be set in the future, features things like hoverbikes and energy weapons, and focuses on the role of Private Military Corporations, one of which is led by a character played by actor Kevin Spacey. We also know what kind of preorder bonuses will be available and that, if online retailer listings are accurate, it's coming to the Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and PC.
