Infinity Ward extends Season One

Ever since the launch of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, players have been complaining about updates, communication, and other developer transparency. Infinity Ward did release new updates every week, but they don’t actually fix the issues that players actually have. This is because of the various developer miscommunication even after launch, and it intensified during the months of November, and December.

Infinity Ward released a major title update with Season 1, followed up by a few patches afterwards. Since then, they’ve installed small, incremental updates via the game, rather than from the console interface. The updates that come through the game-facing menus aren’t game-changing updates, while the updates that come through your console is the bigger one, where they make “quality of life” updates.

Jev of the FaZe Clan has been complaining about the game’s woes since November, and actually got his wish granted in a smaller update. Here’s Jev complaining about bugged officer challenges…

And here’s Jev seeing the update go through, and manages to complete his officer challenges…

On January 10th, Infinity Ward released a community update blog post that you can see here. There’s even a new Trello board you can see here.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare’s Season 2 presumably begins February 11 or 12, depending on how they plan to switch to the new season. Nobody really knows how it will transition into Season Two.

Let me put it this way: There’s another date that was thrown around about Season One’s end – January 28th, a few days before the supposed February 3rd end-date. Sooo, yeah. I don’t know what’s going on here. Stay tuned for more information as we go along.
