Infinity Ward pledges to crackdown on racism in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare

Developer Infinity Ward has pledged to “do a better job” at cracking down on racist content generated by players in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare.

Infinity Ward’s statement comes as Black Lives Matter protests continue around the globe following the police killing of George Floyd last week.
