Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Delays Launch of Competitive Multiplayer Playlist
The CDL Moshpit competitive multiplayer playlist for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 has been delayed, as revealed by developer Treyarch. In conjunction with the release of Call of Duty: Warzone 2.0 and the first season of live content for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, developer Treyarch planned to release CDL Moshpit.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, developed by Treyarch and published by Activision, was released in October as the sequel to the original game in the rebooted Call of Duty: Modern Warfare series. The PC version scored 79, the PS5 version 77, and the Xbox Series X/S version 77 on Metacritic, indicating “generally favorable” reviews. It’s also the ancestor of the recently released Call of Duty: Warzone 2.0 on November 16th.
Treyarch originally planned for CDL Moshpit to be a beta for the ranked modes in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 that will be released in the following year. Treyarch originally intended to release CDL Moshpit on the 16th, but announced a delay the day of. In an official blog post, developers stated that the studio had recently discovered issues with the playlist, and fixing them would “require a slight delay.” When asked what was wrong with the new Multiplayer Playlist for Modern Warfare 2, Treyarch did not provide a specific explanation. Yet, developers state that addressing these concerns is a “top priority.”
The CDL Moshpit mode in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 is meant to serve as a transitional mode between the game’s regular multiplayer matches and the forthcoming Ranked Play modes. This mode will follow the same rotation of maps and follow the same rules as the Call of Duty League’s Hardpoint, Search & Destroy, and Control game modes. Standard four-on-four matches in The Call of Duty League are included.
Treyarch’s CDL Moshpit appears to be aimed at preparing players for the upcoming Ranked Play by providing an environment that is eerily similar to that of a Call of Duty League match. When Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2’s Ranked Play mode releases in 2023, players will be able to rate their own skill, compete in different divisions, unlock new game modes, see where they rank among the top 250 players worldwide, and earn rewards.
Season 1 of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 appears to have gone well, despite the issues with CDL Moshpit. Call of Duty: Warzone 2.0 also went live on the same day, adding even more new content such as new Operators, Maps, Weapons, and Bundles. The latter is a refreshed and, hopefully, more enjoyable version of Call of Duty’s free-to-play battle royale game, featuring new vehicle mechanics, a different map, and the DMZ mode.
