Modern Warfare and Warzone: let’s see all the details on the Black Lives Matter support initiative
The screen, as reported by The Verge , contains a message for the Call of Duty gamer community that reads as follows:
Our community is hurting. The systemic inequalities that our community experiences are once again at the center of the stage. Call of Duty and Infinity Ward are synonymous with equality and inclusion. We are opposed to racism and injustice that our black community suffers. As long as there are no changes, we will never truly be the community in which we strive to be.
The screen will appear for all players when the game starts and as reported by The Verge it will also appear in the loading screens and in the transition from one mode to another. As is already known to many, the Call of Duty community is composed of players prone to racism and on this point Infinity Ward is uncompromising. Season 4 has been postponed following the murder of George Floyd and Infinity Ward has promised to fight in-game racism with improved countermeasures. Infinity Ward is one of several developers and publishers who have addressed current world events and promised support for Black Lives Matter.
