Ever since Call of Duty: Modern Warfare released back in October, players have been voicing their concerns to the developers as they try to get some of the game’s issues resolved. Some of the biggest complaints have been centered around bugs, skill-based matchmaking, and a plethora of other issues.

At times, the developers at Infinity Ward will respond to its community’s concerns, they, more often than not, haven’t been the best at communicating with their players. Unfortunately, when players don’t get the answers they want, or, in some cases, don’t get answers at all, things turn ugly, which is something that Modern Warfare’s art director, Joel Emslie, has a major problem with.

While addressing Modern Warfare’s players over on the game’s subreddit, Infinity Ward’s art director asked fans to show a bit more respect to the devs while they’re addressing some of their concerns. He also defended IW’s senior communications manager, Ashton Williams, who some fans think isn’t meeting expectations as the community manager.

“I would like to ask everyone in the community to give my co-workers a lot more respect in the area of comms. She does a tremendous amount of work behind the scenes that is never seen by the community,” Emslie says of Williams. “She’s doing a phenomenal job working to the best of her ability within some really really tough constraints.”

Even though there have been some issues with Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, it’s already the most played title in the history of the franchise. So, it’s safe to say that the game, while it’s not perfect, has been an overwhelming success since its release.

The developers at Infinity Ward have commented on what is coming to Modern Warfare in 2020, but they haven’t revealed anything major. As of this writing, the biggest thing that’s coming to the latest installment of Call of Duty soon is more custom loadout slots, which was confirmed by the devs earlier this week.

According to a rumor, the first season of Modern Warfare will end later this month, and that there will be five more seasons this year. This rumor stems from the game’s survival mode, which will get a new map at the beginning of each season, and as of right now, it looks like the mode will get five more maps this year.

Also, don’t be surprised if you see Infinity Ward add a battle royale mode to Modern Warfare in the coming months, as they’re rumored to be working on a version of the mode that will be capable of hosting 200 players.
