The Call of Duty series saw its downfall after Activision Blizzard was sued by the state of California over its toxic workplace culture and harassment lawsuits. Call of Duty Modern Warfare and Warzone are not getting much attention as they just can’t live up to the high expectations that all Call of Duty fans are looking for. Players are faced with unexpected crashes, frequent bugs, and longer wait times, which ruins the game overall and greatly damages the reputation of the franchise. Many gamers have described the games as broken and Activision has done nothing to improve the current state of the game.

Activision is already facing a lot of trouble regarding its current accusations of harassment. The studio has also laid off the Raven Software QA team. This incident has also greatly affected the company’s reputation. After much negative feedback from players, Activision has finally responded via the Call of Duty Twitter account. The post read: “We wanted to take a minute to talk about fixing the game. We hear you and feel your frustrations. Our teams are working hard to address the issues being experienced across Vanguard, Warzone, and Modern Warfare. Updates are implemented as quickly as possible. We want everyone to have a seamless experience, no matter what game, game mode, or platform you play.”
Recently, a former Call of Duty developer warned that the series is in need of revitalization and should treat players as a community and not consumers. Rumors about Call of Duty Modern Warfare II have already surfaced. The upcoming title will continue the lineage of the Modern Warfare series. Fans should expect Activision to release Call of Duty Modern Warfare II 2022 somewhere around the second quarter of 2022. Activision has yet to comment on their upcoming Call of Duty 2022 title. Though it looks like they might release it sooner due to all the controversies currently facing the company.
