Warzone fans aren’t happy with the current state of the game and are calling for Raven Software to be replaced as lead developer.
The last few years have been a whirlwind for Activision. Warzone, which was initially just a Battle Royale mode for Modern Warfare, become a worldwide phenomenon, and it somehow broke the Call of Duty annual cycle.
Although COD games only ever get support for a single year before developers move on, Warzone is still around and kicking to this day. In fact, the Warzone Pacific update just added a brand-new map to the game, almost 2 years on from release.
But like many Call of Duty titles, Warzone isn’t without its fair share of issues. In fact, it’s fair to say that Warzone is completely broken in some aspects, and feels held together by a few lines of code in places.
For example, players are currently falling underneath the Caldera map. And the new Krampus update is making Warzone unplayable for some users.
So it’s no surprise that Warzone fans have had enough of Raven Software’s development.
Should Warzone Pacific Get a New Developer?
In a new post on the CODWarzone subreddit, fans call for Raven Software’s replacement as lead developer of Warzone.
Those who played Warzone near launch may recognize the game as being developed by Infinity Ward, developer of Modern Warfare. However, Raven Software has been in the driver’s seat for some time now, at least since the Black Ops Cold War integration.
And with Warzone currently feeling more broken than ever before, fans aren’t happy with the company’s efforts.
“I have nothing personal against Raven but objectively the game has lost quality,” Reddit user StomachFunny2860 writes. “Also the fact that every year a new game is released by three different companies leads to that. Infinity Ward should take care of Warzone.”
The user isn’t the only one calling for the return of Infinity Ward, but the studio is a little too busy to come back right now. After all, we just got our first image of Modern Warfare 2 leaking online early!
And it’s worth noting that Raven Software isn’t even the only team working on Warzone right now. Several Activision side studios are assisting with the Battle Royale, and change is on the way.
Not only is Raven more vocal with fans than ever before but Warzone cheaters are now a thing of the past!
Plus, this popular Warzone feature is back by popular demand, after days of waiting. And big nerfs are coming to some overpowered Warzone Pacific weapons too.
But many fans won’t be happy until the FOV slider finally arrives in Warzone on console. Perhaps the opinion of Raven Software will change if the developer can deliver that popular request.
