Activision, are you this? In Call of Duty: Modern Warfare there will be no lootboxes and an “evil donat”

The latest games of the Call of Duty series were remembered by players not only for innovations, but also for the Activision approach

to monetization. Like Electronic Arts and Ubisoft, the company began introducing lootboxes into their projects, which now haunt CoD fans. Yet with Modern Warfare, this may end.

What is known

Joel Emsley, art director of Infinity Ward ranon Reddit (via Eurogamer) to explain to gamers. According to the developer, in the studio there are no people who work on lootboxes or monetization affecting gameplay. Emsley also noted that “functional things” will open by game. Perhaps the developer had in mind weapons, body kits and other equipment, so the “evil donat” in Modern Warfare should not be expected.

"Sigh. The misinformation and dissemination of incorrect information about Modern Warfare continues. What I can say right now is that we are definitely not working on any lootbox system. In addition, functional things are unlocked through gameplay, ”wrote Emsley.

It looks like lootboxes in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare will not, at least at the start. The same Black Ops 4 acquired an additional monetization system only four months after the release. Even Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled acquired loot boxes, although the developers promised that they would not build in mechanics.
