It appears as though the development team found the beta helpful, even this late into the game’s development.
The beta for Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare has been concluded, just ahead of the game’s launch next week, and it seems like Infinity Ward were able to gain and implement quite a bit of feedback from it into the final release. Specifically, it sounds like the beta has allowed them to optimize matchmaking and balance weapons prior to the game’s launch.
Infinity Ward’s Lead Multiplayer Designer Joe Cecot took to the Activision Blog to thank players for participating in the beta in such huge numbers.
“It’s a wrap! Thank you to the amazing Call of Duty community for the feedback, the intense matches, and the support during our beta,” he said. “Playing online with and watching our hard work of the last three years being enjoyed is a truly exciting experience. We got some excellent player insights into how to best optimize our new matchmaking system and how to balance our new weapons and equipment to create the best quality matches possible for launch. November 4 is just next week! Our open beta gave us the learning we need to make our launch as great as possible. We can’t wait to apply what we’ve learned and show you more of our game as we update and develop it further with your input. Again, thank you from all of us at the studio. Now, let’s reach new heights and continue the conversation through launch and beyond. See you online!”
Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare launches on November 4 on Xbox One, PS4, and PC.
