The recently launched Call of Duty: Ghosts left a few hardcore Search and Destroy fans in the dust, as the long-time, fan-favorite game mode was excluded from any of the game’s playlists. Instead, it was replaced by a new Search and Rescue variation which added dog tags that could be collected to either revive teammates or confirm enemy kills.
Luckily, those longing for the return of the mode in its true form are in for a bit of a treat, according to Infinity Ward. In a recent update, Executive Producer indicated that the mode would indeed be returning via a small playlist update this November 15. Check out his full remarks below.
Hey everyone! Just got back from a long time on the road for work and there is a lot going on, obviously. We’re still in launch mode at the studio as PS4 and XboxONE are still to come. But I did want to say that we are listening to all of the feedback and are collecting it all together to address internally. We’re working on fixes as fast as possible, (which can still take some time with the submission processes) so hang in there. We know one of the biggest requests has been adding S&D to the public playlists which is something we had planned on doing but have decided to up the timeframe, so we’ll be adding it to the playlist on Friday, Nov. 15th. Thanks again everyone for a great launch and I will try and keep the updates flowing. Be sure to check out @infinityward for updates as well.
Are you pleased by the announcement, or do you enjoy the new Search and Rescue take on the classic game mode anyways?
