Call of Duty: Modern Warfare January 24 Community Update

Infinity Ward has released the latest community update for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare on their blog.

The update reveals some additional details on the stat reset error from this week’s update, teases new playlists, and more.

Here’s the full update:

With our latest update out the door, it’s been a busy week at the studio! Let’s take a look at what’s been going on…

On Wednesday, we released our latest title update. We added Aniyah Palace back into rotation, added Capture the Flag to the playlist menu, and also brought back Shoot the Ship. We also gave everyone 5 additional loadout slots for that new Crossbow and fixed quite the list of bugs.

You can check out patch notes for Wednesday’s update HERE

You can also view the notes on our Trello board, HERE. This board shows you known issues we’re investigating and bugs we’re looking into, so be sure to bookmark the board so you can stay up to date! 

Did you receive an error prompt while downloading Wednesday’s update and have your combat record stats reset?

During Wednesday’s update, some users were given an error prompt and for those who clicked “Yes”, their combat record stats were temporarily reset.

This also reset your custom loadouts, Operator customizations, Killstreaks, and Field Upgrade selections back to their default state.

As of today, anyone who clicked “Yes” and had their combat record stats reset should now see their combat record displaying properly and as they were prior to initiating Wednesday’s title update. This won’t restore your customizations, so you’ll need to set those up again to your liking.

If you were part of this group who had their stats reset and are not seeing them restored, please reach out to us! 

Are you stuck in a download loop with “Spec Ops DLC” on PS4? 

This is still being investigated. Please keep an eye on our Trello board and @InfinityWard on Twitter for updates on this issue. Thank you again for your patience. 

We’re also working on some fun twists on old favorites, like Deathmatch Domination…and we’re working on a version of Gunfight with some updated loadouts. We also have some more 2XP events coming your way over the next few weeks too, so stay tuned for more details!

Modern Warfare’s new monetization model is reportedly paying off

A new report from SuperData has been released for the video game industry for the month of December 2019, and the analytical firm has revealed that Modern Warfare’s new monetization model is working.

The report reveals that the game had 4% increase in revenue generated in it first quarter compared to Black Ops 4.

And in December alone, the game generated $78M in revenue during its first month of monetization.

Even tho the revenue was a bit lower than Black Ops 4’s for December, it was impressive because of lack of season pass and supply drops.

A gamble on a new business model paid off for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare. Unlike past games in the franchise, Modern Warfare did not offer a season pass or paid map packs and monetized exclusively through battle pass sales and microtransactions. Despite this, Modern Warfare revenue in Q4 2019 was 4% higher than Call of Duty: Black Ops IIII during its launch quarter. In December 2019, the first month Modern Warfare players could purchase in-game content, spending reached $78.7M, nearly as much as was spent on Black Ops IIII in-game content during that game’s entire first quarter ($92.9M).

Infinity Ward provides status update on stat reset bug in Modern Warfare

Infinity Ward has posted a status update on their website about the stat reset bug that occurred in game following the latest patch update.

The issue prompted users to pick Yes or No to reset their stats in order to continue playing. The studio advised that users do not select any of those options and hard close the application and restart it.

In a post on their site, they’ve provided some additional info on the issue:

Hi everyone,

We want to give a status update on the error prompt issue that occurred while rolling out today’s title update.

A backend fix has already been deployed across all platforms, so you won’t see a download prompt or see anything pop-up on screen to notify you a fix is available. This fix looks at two things:

Loadout Slots:

Part of today’s update included additional loadout slots. If you created classes in these slots, you’ll see that they have been reset back to default. This will only happen one time. If you didn’t create any additional classes in those slots, you won’t notice anything. This also fixes an issue where clicking on these slots could kick some players back to the multiplayer screen.

Error Prompt:

  • If you were presented with the error prompt and did not click “Yes” and closed the game, your stats are still intact. Feel free to play as usual.
  • If you did click “Yes” – you most likely noticed your stats in the combat record, leaderboards, custom classes, and Operators were reset. Nothing related to your progression was lost, so your rank, XP, Battle Pass progression, weapon progression, unlocks, purchases, etc., are all still intact.

We’re actively working on a fix for this, but do not have one to deploy tonight. You are still able to play the game as usual and your progression will still track, but please be aware that once we do have a fix, we may have to roll back your stats to the state they were in prior to today’s update.

We appreciate everyone’s patience while we work through this issue and thank you to everyone who has helped by sending us their information, videos, and screenshots. We’ll provide another update when we have more information for those whose stats were reset and again, thank you all for your patience.

  • Fix for some Officer Progression emblems not displaying the correct rarity

NPD: Modern Warfare is the best selling game of 2019, Call of Duty best selling game of decade

NPD has released the data for the 2019 year for the video game industry in the United States.

Their data has revealed that Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is the best selling game of the year and was the best selling game of December 2019.

The list for December 2019 shows Call of Duty: Modern Warfare at #1 with Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order coming in at #2 for the year.

The NPD also showcased the best selling games of the year 2019, and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare was #1.

The NPD Group also revealed that Call of Duty has been the best selling game in the US in revenue generated for the last 11 years in a row, making it the best selling franchise of all time.

In addition, the NPD Group released the sales results for the last decade, and Call of Duty dominated the charts with 10 games in the top 15 for best selling in the US during the 2010 through 2019 period.

2020 will mark the launch of the next generation of consoles with a new Call of Duty game as well. It won’t be surprised to see Call of Duty #1 this year again.
