Infinity Ward has officially put Search and Destroy back onto the playlists on public matches for Call of Duty: Ghosts. The playlist update was released for all platforms.
Search & Destroy was originally removed because Infinity Ward wanted fans to try out their new twist on that mode, Search and Rescue. But after all the feedback, Infinity Ward has decided to add Search and Destroy back to Call of Duty: Ghosts. Up until now, it was only playable in private match.
Infinity Ward has also confirmed they lowered the respawn timer in HC TDM from 15 seconds to 5 seconds.
