Rumor: Activision Re-Evaluating Modern Warfare Microtransactions Due to Lost Pre-Orders Over Spec Ops PS4 Controversy

Share this:

In case you didn’t know, a lot of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare news cropped up this week, and not everything was good. It was confirmed that one part of the Spec Ops mode called Survival would be exclusive to the PS4 for a year, not only that, but a rumor surfaced stating that the Modern Warfare microtransactions formula of locking weapons behind Supply Drops was once again rearing its ugly head.

It got so bad that Infinity Ward issued not one, but two statements regarding the controversies the game is going through even if it hasn’t officially launched yet. There might be good news that came out of this though. Reliable Call of Duty leaker and YouTuber TheGamingRevolution has gone on Twitter stating that due to a “tonne” of lost Modern Warfare pre-orders over the Spec Ops controversy, Activision and Infinity Ward held a big meeting to talk about Modern Warfare microtransactions, and how Supply Drops work.

Activision and Infinity Ward apparently recent held a big meeting regarding my recent post about Supply Drops. The gist of it is that they’ve lost a tonne of pre orders with the recent news of Survival being delayed by a year on PC/XB and the microtransactions news & are

thinking about giving the player the options to earn them again. Nothing regarding microtransactions is set in stone, and like I’ve said countless times before, they are a constant work in progress, but my source wanted to let the community know that they really care.

Again, before anyone takes this as solid news, bear in mind that even if TheGamingRevolution has been pretty spot-on with almost all of his leaks regarding Modern Warfare, this is still not official news, and as such, should be taken with a grain of salt.

Must-Read:

Give how Call of Duty games these days are released without microtransactions built in and are added at a later date, it’s entirely plausible that Infinity Ward and Activision really haven’t finished cooking up how they’ll implement in-game purchases in Modern Warfare. 

What do you think? Do you believe Activsion will let Infinity Ward make the right move in how Modern Warfare microtransactions work? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
