Over in their forums, Sledgehammer talked about how they’ve been listening to feedback about Advanced Warfare:

Since the launch of Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare last week, our team has been working hard on improvements to the game. We’ve also had our ears to the ground, listening to your feedback. Our commitment to continuing to support the game and community is as strong as ever, and our team is focused on making the experience the best it can be on all platforms.

There was no mention of the PlayStation 3 or Xbox 360 versions getting updated any time soon, but Sledgehammer did tell GameSpot that they’ll be patching the game on “all platforms.”

What are you hoping to see get patched in the second update this week?
