An Infinity Ward developer has finally responded to Modern Warfare player’s calls for details surrounding ranked play. However, it isn’t exactly good news for hopeful fans.
While Infinity Ward has been dropping new content for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare since the game launched back on October 25, players have been waiting for parts of multiplayer that haven’t been released.
Many are still waiting on official details regarding a potential battle royale – which seems to be in the works, if supposed leakers are to be believed. Plenty of other players are hoping to see the introduction of ranked play.
The multiplayer mode, which allows players to test themselves in a more competitive ruleset and hone their skills even further, has never been a part of an Infinity Ward developed title – though it hasn’t stopped fans begging for it with the formation of the Call of Duty League.
While it has been pretty much silence from the developers when it comes to being quizzed on the subject, Infinity Ward art director Joel Emslie finally responded to a question on the Modern Warfare subreddit. “Sorry. I don’t have details on that,” he said on February 7, much to the dismay of some commenters.
Of course, while it isn’t exactly the answer that fans will have been hoping for, the response doesn’t exactly close the door on hopes of ranked play.
Also, while Emslie might have an insight into what the studio is working on in terms of new content, if Infinity Ward were ever going to release a highly-requested mode, it is pretty unlikely that they would confirm it’s existence in a buried away Reddit comment.
Whether or not ranked mode will ever see the light of day in Modern Warfare still very much remains to be seen, though it may seem like hope is fading for many fans who are eager to test themselves against the very best.
