The developers of this year’s Call of Duty isn’t working on any kind of loot box system or anything regarding supply drops (which was in Black Ops IIII).
Previously, there were rumours about heavy monetization in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare (and we can be confident about that as Activision Blizzard loves to release games without microtransactions, only to add them later anyway, like in Call of Duty: Black Ops III and Crash Team Racing: Nitro-Fueled), and the developers kept silent about the rumours, until now. They grabbed a keyboard and wrote the following post on Reddit: „Sigh. There continues to be misinformed and incorrect info being pushed about Modern Warfare. What I can say right now is that we are definitely NOT working on any kind of supply drop or loot box system. Also, functional stuff [not cosmetic things – the ed.] is unlocked through GAMEPLAY. Stay tuned, we’re planning to release info this week.”
Under the misinformation and incorrect information part, Infinity Ward probably meant TheGamingRevolution’s tweets: „Who wants 300+ emotes in supply drops? Who wants 500+ titles, who wants over 200 sprays in supply drops? YAYAYAYAYAYYA! Weapons are coming too, forget any cosmetic only malarkey. They’re literally changing so much. They had A FAIR SYSTEM WITH SALVAGE and then they just remove it. I hope something changes by release, I swear.”
So Infinity Ward tries to relax the fans, but we have to remember that monetization could be added AFTER the game’s launch to not keep everything perfect. We’ll have to see if Infinity Ward keeps their word. Black Ops IIII went down the same route, by the way.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is out on October 25 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC (where it will be a Battle.net-exclusive).
