Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War Designer Comments on Upcoming Balance Changes

Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War finally released this weekend for PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and PC, and as expected, the massive influx in active players has provided the developers with plenty of data to chew on for upcoming changes. According to one designer, players can expect updates to weapons, Scorestreaks, and more when Season 1 launches "if not sooner."

"There WILL be Weapon, Scorestreak, and more balance changes coming in with Season 1, if not sooner," shared Tony Flame, Lead Game Designer at Treyarch, last night on Twitter. "Already seeing some interesting trends in the analytics, but it's too soon for conclusions. If you're giving feedback, know that we see it and are taking it into consideration."
