Five title updates have already gone into Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 in order to address persistent issues with the game’s multiplayer. Today on the official Call of Duty forums, Infinity Ward’s Robert Bowling outlined these fixes and revealed what will be going into the sixth update for the game.
Most notably, it appears as though the team at Infinity Ward is working to reduce lag and remove the ability for users to sneak buttons into their clan tag. There’s no specific date as to when the patch will be released, but with Infinity Ward’s reliable track record on such matters, it should be no time before gamers will have to boot up the game twice on start-up.
Here’s Bowling’s full list from the Call of Duty forums:
