'Call Of Duty: Warzone' Devs Admit They "F**ked Up" And "Broke" The Game

The developers of Call Of Duty: Warzone have reportedly admitted that the free-to-play battle royale is in an embarrassing state right now, and have promised to fix it soon.

For the past few months, Call Of Duty fans have been particularly unhappy with the current issues surrounding a few of the games in the franchise. Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare, Call Of Duty: Warzone, and Call Of Duty: Vanguard have all faced their share of issues, but it's Warzone that seems to be the most broken.

CharlieIntel reports that Activision recently hosted a call with press and content creators, in which Infinity Ward co-studio head Patrick Kelly, Activision game director Josh Bridge, and Raven Software’s Eric Biesmann spoke frankly about the future of Warzone.

During the call, it's reported that the assembled developers admitted that “we f**ked stuff up,” but also promised that many of the game's issues would be addressed. It's worth noting that Activision publicly admitted as much at the start of the year, albeit much less bluntly than this.

Bridge explained that the team is “not happy” with the state that Warzone finds itself in, adding they've “learned the upper limits of their technology” as far as integrating newer Call Of Duty games into the battle royale goes.

Kelly added that Warzone, which was originally built alongside 2019's Modern Warfare, slowly lost its identity as a result of the team's attempts to bring in elements from Black Ops Cold War and Vanguard. He said this led to “significant development challenges,” that ultimately harmed Warzone's identity. “It didn’t feel like Modern Warfare anymore, nor did it feel like Black Ops.”

While not mentioned during the call, it's also worth pointing out that Activision is currently dealing with a major leadership crisis. In the last few months, the publisher has had to contend with developer walkouts over its current leaders and decisions, allegations of harassment, and the mass firing of Raven Software's Quality Assurance team.

In spite of all this, the trio seem confident that it can turn Call Of Duty around. They hope to do this by communicating more frequently and clearly with players about upcoming changes to the games, from newer features to simple fixes and tweaks.
