“I’m very conscious of the overall size of MW and we’re doing what we can to minimize this for everyone,” he added.
That was still cold convenience to Call of Duty fans with less than state-of- the-art connections, bandwidth cap issues, or console hard disks with space enough for plenty of full- size titles, however inadequate for this kind of a spot.
Somebody posted this screenshot from an unnamed university’s IT department, which associated a multi-campus network downturn to the Call of Duty upgrade. It shot to the top of the Modern Warfare subreddit.

Ghost was seen in season 2’s in-game cinematic, which likewise teased components that recommend a fight royale is concerning Modern Warfare. Last year’s Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 had a fight royale, and reports of one for Modern Warfare have actually continued because December, Infinity Ward has actually yet stated absolutely nothing official on the topic.
