The current tense situation in the United States has not gone unnoticed by Infinity Ward. After postponing the season 4 premiere of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare as a measure to support protests against racism, the company has announced a series of measures that will combat those users who behave in hate and intolerance.
“There is no place for racist content in our game,” the study begins on Twitter. “This is an effort that started at launch and we need to improve. We are reporting thousands of daily expulsions related to racism and hate-oriented names. But we know we can do more.”
These are the five measures that Infinity Ward has announced:
- Add additional resources to monitor IDs that promote racist content.
- Add additional in-game systems to report and increase the number of expulsions per hour
- Add filters and better restrictions to name changes
- Evaluate in-game improvements to make it easier to report offenses
- Increase permanent expulsions for repeat offenders
More and more large companies are joining the fight against racism. These days we have seen many signs of support, such as those shown by Nintendo, PlayStation, Xbox, and a good number of developers.
