Call of Duty: Modern Warfare

Raven Software logo not shown on Modern Warfare Beta loading screen

Published

So here’s something interesting we’ve noticed about the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Beta file on PlayStation 4:

When you’re loading up the beta, you’re greeted to the usual introduction we see from Call of Duty games: a selection of logos from the developers who are working on the project.

The loading screen for Modern Warfare Beta starts with the Infinity Ward development team logo, followed by the Activision logo. After that, we’re shown the High Moon Studios and Beenox logos. High Moon and Beenox have been confirmed to be assisting Infinity Ward with the development of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare.

But, watching that introduction, one particular logo is missing: Raven Software.

Raven Software has been credited in all of the press releases from Activision thus far in regards to Call of Duty: Modern Warfare. The latest press release, from August 1 MP reveal event, mentions them:

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is published by Activision, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Activision Blizzard (NASDAQ: ATVI) with development led by award-winning developer, Infinity Ward, and additional development support from Beenox, High-Moon Studios and Raven Software.

And, every Call of Duty game thus far in the past few years has shown the Raven Software logo on the start up screen as the studio has been providing support to the development of all recent Call of Duty games.

So why is their logo missing?

Nothing has been officially confirmed, but this could add more to the rumors about Raven being tasked with developing a Battle Royale standalone mode for Modern Warfare. They wouldn’t be credited on the main game if they’re only focusing on the BR mode at this point.

Rumors have pointed to Raven Software being given the lead on the Battle Royale project, which is rumored to be available in 2020 as a free standalone mode for the game.

Raven Software has even been hiring a new Community Manager, the first time the studio has ever been looking for a Community team in the studio’s recent history.

We will keep you updated.

Black Ops Cold War & Modern Warfare loadouts to be accessible in Warzone

Published

on

Activision President has confirmed that players will be able to use both Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare loadouts in Warzone.

During the company’s Q3 financial call, Activision’s President spoke about how Warzone will evolve into future Call of Duty titles.

Kostich confirmed that Warzone is very important for the future of the overall franchise and are excited for growth opportunities with it.

So, for example, all the new Black Ops weapons and Operators you unlock in your Level 1 to 55 progression will be useable in Black Ops and in Warzone, just like how it works in Modern Warfare. Black Ops Battle Pass content and store content will also work across Black Ops and Warzone. 

Now players can of course continue to use their Modern Warfare content in Warzone once Black Ops launches. And as a result, one cool feature players will see is that they’ll be able to choose either their Black Ops loadout or their Modern Warfare loadout in Warzone for their gameplay. And this is just one example of how Warzone’s gonna expand and evolve overtime. 

As mentioned earlier, Black Ops Cold War and Warzone’s integration will become available in December, alongside Black Ops Cold War’s first Season of Content.

When this happens, Warzone will become tied to Black Ops Cold War with Battle Pass & monetization. And, players will then be able to start using Black Ops Cold War Weapons & Operators in Warzone.

But for players who are enjoying Modern Warfare and those loadouts, you can still bring those with you.

Modern Warfare’s Loadouts and Operators will also be selectable in Warzone after the Black Ops Cold War integration. Players will be able to bring their cosmetic content to Warzone as well from Modern Warfare.

He lastly confirmed that news on Warzone and Black Ops Cold War will be coming in “a week or two.”

Modern Warfare is now the best selling Call of Duty in its first year

Published

on

Activision Blizzard has announced it’s Q3 2020 Financial Results, which continue to exceed expectations as people move to gaming avenues during this time.

Activision has stated that generated over $1.2 billion in revenue from microtransactions across all of their titles, a new record for Q3.

The company also announced that Modern Warfare is now the best selling premium Call of Duty in its first year ever, with almost two-thirds coming digitally. Warzone also continues to see incredible success, on PC as well, with PC microtransaction sales four times higher this year.

“Our teams continue to execute our growth plans with excellence during incredibly challenging circumstances,” said Bobby Kotick, Chief Executive Officer of Activision Blizzard. “We are on a path to deliver sustained long-term growth across our fully-owned franchises. With confidence in our ability to continue to execute, we are raising our outlook for the year and remain enthusiastic for our growth prospects next year.”

Activision says that monthly active users for Modern Warfare & Warzone saw “three times as many” this year compared to Q3 2019.

Here’s the higlights from Activision on the quarter, which is quite impressive:

  • Call of Duty®: Modern Warfare® and Warzone™ saw more than three times as many MAUs as the prior title in the year-ago quarter. Console MAU grew strongly and PC MAUs grew over ten-fold year-over-year. Across PC and console combined, hours played were approximately seven times higher year-over-year.
  • We again saw substantial year-over-year growth in premium game sales as Warzone players chose to upgrade to the full Call of Duty experience. Modern Warfare first-year premium sales are the highest in Call of Duty’s history, with two-thirds of units sold digitally.
  • Call of Duty console and PC in-game net bookings were four times the year-ago level.
  • Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War will release on November 13 into the largest and most engaged community in franchise history at the time of launch, and will support cross-platform play across PC, current-generation, and next-generation consoles. Anticipation for the release is high, with far more players engaged in the game’s public testing than for the year-ago title.

Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War arrives Nov. 13.
