It seems all the pestering has paid off as fans are set to receive their most asked-for feature by a long shot.

In Black Ops Cold War, players were able to easily pause the game while in a private match with friends or solo game, making it a lot easier to take a break, which previously required players to assign a zombie to a player while the other makes a break for the toilet.
