Infinity Ward’s confirmed the first DLC for Modern Warfare 3 will arrive on Xbox 360 next month.

Speaking in a video for Call of Duty Elite, IW’s Robert Bowling said the content would arrive on January 22.

“The way we’re doing downloadable content this year is unlike we’ve never done before,” he said.

“Not only in how you can get it – in content drops or choose for the collection – but also the type of content you’re getting. We’re doing more than just maps. We’re going to do Spec Ops missions and a variety of things that players have never seen before.

He continued the upcoming content was “the great thing” in having three studios involved in the making of the content – Infinity Ward, Sledgehammer and Raven Software.

Activision’s confirmed to CVG more details on the content will come in early January.

The DLC will be exclusive to Xbox Live subs first, as part of a deal exclusivity deal announced at E3 in 2010, before coming to PS3 and PC a month later.
