Update: The Modern Warfare 2 patch was successful in eliminating much of the ability of hackers, however we have identified other areas that were vulnerable and have added additional security enhancements to the Xbox 360 and PC versions of the patch. We plan to re-patch the Playstation 3 version as well with these additional updates.
Now that we have these patches on the road to release (out of production) we are looking at how we can further improve the situation on legacy titles such as Call of Duty 4. The first such move will be to update the playlists for Call of Duty 4 to allow access to all game modes regardless of rank.
The latest patch for Modern Warfare 2 has finished. This new title update will address security issues that have affected online play.
We plan to release this update for all platforms (Playstation 3, Xbox 360, and PC).
Release Date for Playstation 3 (worldwide):March 8th
Release Date for Xbox 360:May 9th
Release Date for PC: TBD
In addition to the security updates, this patch will also address a small geo exploit on the map Fuel, which players exploited in order to get inside a rock on the outskirts of the map.
