Infinity Ward also shared incoming bug fixes for Modern Warfare’s second beta. Some of these fixes include addressing a “pull” players experience near doors, grenades getting stuck on doors, players getting stuck in parts of the map, and more. Additionally, Infinity Ward said it is investigating several other issues, including online server connectivity, weapon attachments not unlocking at the requisite level, and more.
While Infinity Ward hinted at adding battle royale to Modern Warfare, the studio insists battle royale isn’t coming. Though the studio “love[s] battle royale,” studio narrative director Taylor Kurosaki explained Infinity Ward has its hands full with other elements. “Campaign, multiplayer, Spec Ops—[battle royale] won’t fit in the box! How much do you want?” Kurosaki said.
