Infinity Ward reveals changes being made to Modern Warfare 2 based on beta feedback
Infinity Ward has outlined a couple of changes that it will be making to Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 following feedback received from the recently concluded beta.
“One of the most important parts of the Beta is having you, the players, find new bugs and issues for us,” the developer wrote. “We are grateful to the community for coming together to help us fine-tune this game—and we can’t wait to show you even more.”
Starting with footstep audio, the developer stated that while players seem happier with the changes made in weekend two it plans to “continue to balance enemy/friendly footstep audio ahead of launch.” In addition, Infinity Ward is making more tweaks to enemy visibility to make it easier for players to track their opponents without relying on the traditional nameplate.
The developer is also planning a few more changes to weapon balance following the beta and will be refining the Third-Person playlist. The developer stated that it is aware of the feedback regarding camera shoulder-swapping in this mode.
“Ground War and Invasion also got a lot of love from players in Beta. Thanks to our diligent fans, we have many bugs to work through in both of our Battle Map modes,” Infinity Ward added. “We also have some improvements coming for AI navigation for Invasion.”
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 launches on October 28th for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
