Call of Duty: Warzone is easily one of Activision’s biggest games out there right now, but the battle royale shooter has been in something of a lull for some time. Multiple issues with the game and events behind-the-scenes have joined hands for a gameplay experience that’s been far bumpier than one would want- though it seems Activision is working on some necessary improvements.
In a recently published update on the official Call of Duty website, Activision confirms that it’ll be pushing out a number of improvements and fixes when Call of Duty: Warzone’s Season Two goes live on February 14.
“The number one priority for our developers is “Quality of Life” – making changes that allow Warzone to be more accessible and less frustrating for our community,” the update reads.
This will include over 30 improvements, including “improvements in all forms of movement: vehicle handling, parachutes deploying at a lower vertical height, increased player mantle height, and collision fixes for both vehicles and players.”
Fixes will also be made to “performance and streaming issues, including Buy Station freezes, voice chat connectivity, and distorted graphics, across all platforms”, while blockages to Modern Warfare’s multiplaye will also be addressed.
“Ultimately, we want to focus on what makes Warzone enjoyable to our community: where gameplay comes first, and new features aren’t implemented at the cost of stability,” Activision writes.
That said, one highly requested feature that’s not going to make it into the game is an FOV slider in game’s console versions, which, according to Activision will create “major performance impacts for old gen console players.”
“Our goal is for Warzone to be a performant experience on all platforms, so we do not plan to implement an FOV Slider on console at this time,” the update reads.
Meanwhile, Activision has also officially confirmed that Infinity Ward is leading development on Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 and Call of Duty: Warzone 2, both of which are being “designed together from the ground up” on new engines and will launch later this year. Read more on that through here.
