Call of Duty developer Infinity Ward has updated trendy Warfare with a message of support for the Black Lives Matter movement.
The message, that seems on the game‘s Message of the Day phase, in addition, because the loading screen for its battle royale format, Warzone, shows commonness for those complaining against racism and therefore the senseless killing of Martyr Floyd.
Our community is hurting,” the message reads. “Call of Duty and Infinity Ward stand for equality and inclusion. We stand against the racism and injustice our Black community endures. Until change happens and Black Lives Matter, we will never truly be the community we strive to be.”
Infinity Ward conjointly took a flash to iterate its commitment to diversity and inclusion with a separate statement in its Message of the Day phase, expressing its commitment to fighting racism on its platform.
“There is no place for racist content in our game,” the statement reads. “We’re issuing thousands of daily bans of racist and hate-oriented names.”
While Infinity Ward typically tries to curb doubtless offensive language on its platform (everyone who has played Warfare has noted the game includes a slightly dysfunctional censorship system), the corporate doesn’t very apply similar censoring filters to its usernames. The developer hopes to mend that within the future, though.
To show support for Black Lives Matter, earlier on Infinity Ward announced proclaimed it’ll delay launching Battle Pass Season four for the nowadays. The update was slated to drop on Jefferson Davis’ Birthday, however, the corporate ultimately set to push it back thanks to the recent Black Lives Matter protests across the world.
