Activision finally issues an apology for the state of Call of Duty

The publishers of Call of Duty are promising to players that fixes and improvements are coming to the games.


After months of silence, Activision has officially acknowledged the ongoing issues with the Call of Duty games.

One can't help but wonder if Activision's apology and promises are a case of too little, too late.

In a recent statement on Twitter, Activision assured fans that it can feel the community's growing frustration and that the publisher's development teams are working hard to fix the problems currently faced by Vanguard, Warzone, and Modern Warfare.

The abysmal state of the Call of Duty games has been an open secret for a while. But, it appears that things have gotten from bad to worse in recent months, especially following the release of Call of Duty: Vanguard. Even though Vanguard topped sales charts when it was launched, many players have decided to skip Call of Duty due to a litany of complications ranging from sudden crashes, unexplained bugs, unaddressed problems, and excruciatingly long queue times.

Activision specifically singled out the issues that each team is working on at the moment. In particular, the controversial video game publisher keyed in on prevalent performance issues on PlayStation and Xbox consoles. Another point of interest was Vanguard's challenge-related problems and party disconnection issues in matchmaking, as well as the lack of diversity in the game's map rotation.

Finally, Activision confirmed that a pause option for Zombies is coming albeit it declined to give a date when this is going to happen.

The Call of Duty franchise grows every year and 2022 is no different. Fans are expecting Activision to announce Infinity Ward's Modern Warfare sequel anytime now. If the recent reports are any indication, the next Call of Duty will feature a single-player campaign revolving around Colombian drug cartels, among other things.

As all of this is happening, Activision Blizzard is facing a lawsuit from the state of California too.
