Modern Warfare dev admits they need ‘better ways’ of communicating, says they’re ‘working on it’

Infinity Ward’s Art Director Joel Emslie has been active on Reddit this past week, more active than any other developer at Infinity Ward. Emslie states on Reddit that he’s been browsing the posts because of extra time during his vacation. The studio fully comes back on January 6.

In a post reply, Emslie states the studio’s Communications Manager is doing a “good job” under the “really really tough constraints” of the job.

In my opinion our community manager is doing a phenomenal job working to the best of her ability within some really really tough constraints. She does a tremendous amount of work behind the scenes that is never seen by the community. I have the luxury of popping in here from time to time to spit ball stuff with you guys and Im happy to do that.

He followed up on January 3 with additional replies after a fan asked him why he’s replying more than the Comms Manager is on Reddit.

He states that he’s been discussing topics he can talk about in this Reddit that are in his expertise area. He also says that “none of us would argue” that they can “find better ways to get the community information about the game.” Emslie confirms they’re “working on it.”

Almost all of the responses I’ve been discussing in this sub are in my area of expertise so I can be very open. As long as we are on the topic. I would like to ask everyone in the community to give my co-workers a lot more respect in the area of comms. Everyone is working as hard as they can and doing a phenomenal job. I do think and none of us would argue, that we need to find better ways to get the community information about the game. We are working on it and with anything this big theres always room for improvement.

Infinity Ward’s Sr. Communications Manager Ashton Williams stated back in December that a roadmap and other things are “coming” but did not provide an ETA.
