Modern Warfare 2 to Receive Major Security Patch Soon

February 15, 2011 Written by Mike Hartnett

If you’ve read it on the web, or experienced it in-game, then you’re probably aware of the fact that playing Modern Warfare 2 online is, currently, nothing but one big load of frustration. Infinity Ward is well aware of this and has just announced that a security update is on its way.

Creative Strategist Robert Bowling has announced that Infinity Ward (or what’s left of them) will be releasing a new security update across all major platforms in order to combat the rampant cheating which has plagues the online portion of Modern Warfare 2.

The latest patch for Modern Warfare 2 has finished production and is now going through internal quality assurance. 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). No release date is set at this time. Once an ETA is established, it will be posted here.

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.

It’s great to finally see a fix coming for what can only be described as a crippled online arena, as there are still many players which seem to prefer the style of the Infinity Ward titles over those developed by Treyarch. You can be sure we’ll let you all know once an ETA is announced for this latest patch. Until then, be sure to stay tuned to PlayStation LifeStyle.
