The release of Blackout was a breath of fresh air for many hardcore battle royale players, but less than two months after release, some are starting to see the flaws.
Given that Dr DisRespect has pretty much been playing nothing but Blackout since Black Ops 4 was released on October 12, you might think that he’s been enjoying his time.
While responding to a donator’s message during his stream on November 29, however, he gave his outlook on the longevity of the game and it wasn’t pretty.
The message read: “They gave us half-finished Blackout and have yet to finish any of the predominant issues that the community has been talking about since release. As someone who plays it regularly, I say this mode on this map has six months.”
In response, the two-time Blockbuster Gaming Champion said that he disagreed, as he felt the donator overestimated the time Blackout has left.
“I think you’re wrong. I think it has just one or two months before it's really, really down,” Dr DisRespect said about the popular battle royale. “I have to be honest.”
The grim outlook on the future of Blackout comes just days after David Vonderhaar, Treyarch Studio Design Lead, confirmed that more features are on the way for the game mode.
Chief among the upcoming features are new updates to the map. No specifics were given by Vonderhaar, but there’s no shortage of Call of Duty maps and locations to pull from.
The question now becomes whether these upcoming changes will come in time to prevent Dr DisRespect’s grim outlook on Blackout’s future.
