A “Call of Duty” developer employed by Activision has recently called out the game publisher regarding its recent apology on the game franchise’s numerous issues. Activision has caught the ire of the “CoD” community with the ongoing bugs that have plagued the titles of “Call of Duty: Warzone,” “Vanguard,” and even “Modern Warfare” that came out back in 2019.

The prevalent issues within some of “Call of Duty” games have prompted Activision to release a message to their playerbase. According to the game publisher, they “are hard at work addressing the issues that are being experienced across “Vanguard,” “Warzone,” and “Modern Warfare,” Dexerto reports.
Activision revealed that they are rolling out updates as prompt as possible as they want the “Call of Duty” community to play their titles seamlessly. It went on to state that their playerbase’s voice is an integral part of their development process to make their games the best they can be.

Call of Duty dev not convinced
However, this message to the community from the game publisher was not well-received by a “Call of Duty” developer – Kate Anderson. Per the developer’s tweet, it was learned that Activision employees who are on strike have gotten the same emails. Despite this, they pointed out that the leadership declines to reach out directly to them. They highlighted that the current state of “Call of Duty” “is a direct result of their inability to lead responsibly.”
Striking employees have received countless similar emails also saying "we hear you, and we feel your frustrations" yet leadership refuses to communicate directly with us. The state of COD games right now is a direct result of their inability to lead responsibly. https://t.co/loHJHjjgza

Anderson’s tweet gained quite the traction among “Call of Duty” fans as they believe that the publisher’s issues within the company are probably contributing to their products’ poor state. In line with this, there were even suggestions claiming that 2022’s “CoD” – which is believed to be a follow-up to 2019’s “Modern Warfare” – will be getting an earlier release date due to “Vanguard’s” poor reception.
