Is this the first sign of developers learning from their fans? An immediate outcry tends to unfold over Twitter and Reddit when someone even whispers the words “Loot Box.” And for fans of Call of Duty who have a visceral reaction to that term, we have great news! Joel Emslie, Studio Art Director of Infinity Ward just confirmed that there will be no such thing in the new Call of Duty: Modern Warfare!
Sigh. There continues to be misinformed and incorrect info being pushed about Modern Warfare. What I can say right now is that we are definitely NOT working on any kind of supply drop or loot box system. Also, functional stuff is unlocked through GAMEPLAY. Stay tuned, we’re planning to release info this week.

Questions have been raised whether this is just temporary and might be added later in the life cycle of the game, but for those opposed to the loot box system, you can sleep peacefully at night knowing your skill (or lack thereof) is how you’ll advance in the game.
