GameInformer interviews Infinity Ward on Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Development – Campaign, Origins, And More

Published

GameInformer has shared a video today featuring Infinity Ward’s Campaign Directors Jacob Minkoff and Taylor Kurosaki.

Here’s a summary what was talked about in the interview:

  • Ideas for 2019 game started before Infinite Warfare shipped in 2016
  • Patrick Kelly, IW Studio Head, voiced that they should make Modern Warfare again.
  • Taylor Kurosaki says he ‘grew found of Infinite Warfare’s character’ but put those aside to make Modern Warfare. He also says that those characters are still out there and will be ‘revisited’ in the future.
  • He says they will make Infinite Warfare 2 whenever the year Infinite Warfare took place actually comes around. Infinite Warfare ‘will be Modern Warfare at some point’
  • He says both Infinite Warfare and Modern Warfare “are about warfare.” Infinite Warfare was about being a “captain and figuring things out on the fly.” But “Modern Warfare has the burden of being the protector.” “You carry the burden with you” in Modern Warfare.
  • On why it is a MW reboot and not MW4: “We talked about it a bunch.” “We basically landed pretty quickly that if we made a sequel we would have to be telling a story that continues on from Modern Warfare 3.” The ending of MW3 left a lot of stakes that were not relatable anymore, so it could not be realistic. And so many people did not get a chance to play the originals and would have to be caught up on all the aspects of the game.
  • What makes it Modern Warfare is that it is a modern game that has events that can happen. “We had too reboot.”
  • “We have a lot of other returning characters as well” but “new re-imagined versions of those characters.”
  • “We talked about some radical casting ideas for the characters.”
  • There is enough differences that it is not the same original Modern Warfare story and overall feeling to the actors makes it new and modern.
  • “We do not want to spoil who comes back.”
  • The experience designing this game has been “awesome.” The team has “evolved and grown” with “new blood and old blood.” “The team making the game is truly like a squad. We fight together. We care so much about this thing.”
  • “This has been the easiest development of my career because of how energized people have been towards the same goal” – Minkoff, who has worked on many games over his career.
  • “We had one level that was not testing very well. It did not have the player agency, but it just did not have the gameplay core. And this one designer was like this is not working and he went and ripped everything apart and basically made it open world, many different overlapping paths, all sorts of new weapons you can find…like he drastically changed it. This is everything. Having people like that, who throw themselves in it by making the game so much better, moments like that are absolutely priceless.”
  • “This game is a game that is more authentic.”

In this exclusive Game Informer interview, Infinity Ward’s campaign gameplay director Jacob Minkoff and studio narrative director Taylor Kurosaki talk about leaving Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare behind, why they didn’t choose to create a Modern Warfare 4, and why you can expect more characters than just Price to return to the reboot.

The Soap Operator Bundle is now available in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and Warzone to the delight of players who have been anxiously awaiting to see the SOAP Operator Bundle added to both games.

One of the biggest topics for Warzone and Modern Warfare players has been the group of unreleased content that has been leaked and seen in both games before but still not officially added.

This content consisted of the Soap Operator, the CX-9 SMG, and RAAL LMG. The Soap Operator for Warzone and Modern Warfare had been leaked a while back.

At the same time, both the CX-9 SMG and RAAL LMG were added without any official notice to Warzone a couple of seasons ago before being removed without any warning before their blueprints were spotted in the files for both games.

The CX-9 was then spotted in a gameplay video showing off the Season 4 Reloaded Payload game mode.

However, the unreleased nature of two of these pieces of unreleased content changed on August 3, 2021, when the Soap Operator Bundle and CX-9 SMG were officially added to both games, much to the delight of the Call of Duty community.

How to fix Warzone & Modern Warfare Diver Error 6 Code

Here’s how to fix Warzone and Modern Warfare’s Diver or Error 6 Code which has caused downloads to fail, locking players out of the game.

Warzone diver code 6 error

Call of Duty Warzone and Modern Warfare players have been unable to play thanks to the Diver or Error Code 6, but we’ve got some solutions to help you get back into Season 4 Verdansk.

The Warzone community appears to be reaching a boiling point in Season 4, with glitches and hackers ruining the experience for many. Some players haven’t even been able to launch the game with the Diver or Error 6 Code making an unfortunate return.

There are some solutions to the error, so we’ve detailed them below to help you get back to playing Verdansk, Rebirth Island, or Modern Warfare multiplayer.

How to fix Code Diver 6 Error in Warzone & Modern Warfare

Call of Duty Warzone Season 4 Jackal operator

If you’re hit by the Diver or Code 6 Error in Modern Warfare or Warzone Season 4, you’ll be met with a screen telling you “Download Failed.” This is the root of the problem but fortunately, allows us to provide several fixes that should work.

Check the Warzone servers

This error code can often be caused by an issue with Warzone’s servers. Check out our Warzone server-status guide, and if there’s a problem, it’s worth waiting for the issue to be resolved by Raven Software.

If there isn’t a server issue, check out the following solutions.

Restart your router

The first thing you should try is restarting your router, as this could trigger your console or PC to begin the failed download.

  1. First, completely close Warzone or Modern Warfare
  2. Unplug your router / modem, wait thirty seconds, and plug it back in
  3. Wait around five minutes for it to completely reboot
  4. Launch Warzone or Modern Warfare

Download the update through a hotspot / cellular data

If resetting your internet didn’t work, you can try downloading the update through cellular data. Players have reported that this works for some reason, so it’s worth a try. However, you could rack up high data charges so we only recommend trying this if you’re desperate.

Reinstall Warzone and Modern Warfare

Unfortunately, the last solution we recommend is completely reinstalling Warzone / Modern Warfare. This will give a fresh install of Warzone and should be completely free of the Diver or Code 6 Error.

Warzone and Modern Warfare has a huge file size, so redownloading the game will likely take some time. But hopefully, you’ll be able to play battle royale and multiplayer with no issues afterward.


We’re fast approaching Warzone Season 5, so you can check out the leaked artwork and its release date.
