Infinity Ward reveals its December 1 playlist update for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and Warzone, which is getting a mixed reception.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and Warzone‘s new playlist updates are now live. The December 1 update is just for the playlist, so neither Call of Duty: Modern Warfare nor Warzone players will have to download anything.
Infinity Ward’s Call of Duty titles continue to be popular, despite Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War‘s release. However, there are Modern Warfare fans who fear the game’s days are numbered. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and Warzone‘s Season 6 extension means the current season will end just a few days before the integration with Black Ops Cold War.
For Modern Warfare, the game is adding Gunfight: Snipers Only, Deathmatch Domination, “Stir Crazy,” and “A Little DIY.” While the snipers only Gunfight and Deathmatch Domination are self-descriptive, the other two are not. “Stir Crazy” is a 10v10 mode, with only small maps available. “A Little DIY” consists of the maps Scrapyard and Hardhat, although hopefully this time without the invisible wall bug. As far as Warzone goes, the only real change is the swapping out of Blood Money Trios for Plunder Quads. Infinity Ward has the full notes listed on its official Twitter account.

The new playlist update comes as a disappointment to some Call of Duty: Modern Warfare players, who have been asking for permanent Modern Warfare playlists for several months. Another issue players are taking with the update isn’t so much about what it does have, it’s what it doesn’t. Players have made it very clear on Twitter that they just want Shipment and Shoot House 24/7 back. Many users responded directly to the game developer, declaring the game done for.
However, this could easily turn out to be nothing more than assumptions from disgruntled gamers. After all, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is currently the best-ever selling game in the franchise. In fact, there are many who believe that rather than Black Ops Cold War, Modern Warfare may still be the real competition for next year’s Battlefield 6. It should be interesting to see what Infinity Ward does with the game after the multiple entries in the series blend together.
Activision continues its annual trend of releasing a new Call of Duty title, something the publisher has largely kept to October or November. While this year is no different in terms of a new CoD, the situation surrounding it is anything but. Call of Duty is about to create a unified progression system, making all three games retain a sense of importance. Even though Black Ops Cold War has the spotlight, its brutally low Metacritic score may signal developers to keep the focus on Call of Duty: Modern Warfare a bit longer.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is available now on PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
