In a brand new start-up display screen that greets gamers after they load right into a sport, Infinity Ward makes it clear that the “Name of Obligation” group stands with the Black Lives Matter motion.
The message in its entirety:
Black Lives Matter. Our group is hurting. The systemic inequalities our group experiences are as soon as once more heart stage. Name of Obligation and Infinity Ward stand for equality and inclusion. We stand towards the racism and injustice our Black group enures. Till change occurs and Black Lives Matter, we are going to by no means really be the group we try to be.
