Activision has confirmed that a new Call of Duty Modern Warfare update is being released this week on PS4 and Xbox One. It follows a large COD download from last week that caused some severe issues and affected a number of accounts. These problems are being reversed by developers Infinity Ward, but there are still reports coming in other gamers not being able to play Modern Warfare properly.
It’s unclear if the next Call of Duty Modern Warfare update will address these problems or will focus solely on changing the playlist.
What we do know is that the new hybrid mode Deathmatch Domination will be going live this week, alongside Shipment 24/7.
Playlist changes usually go live on Tuesdays, so there seems a good chance of something popping up later today by 7pm, GMT.
However, it should be noted that Infinity Ward may elect to postpone these changes until a big patch is released, as no set release date has been announced for this week’s playlist changes.
Here’s the latest message from Activision, which reads: “This week engage in a customized Gunfight, a hybrid of two fan-favourite game modes, and more chaos on Shipment.

“The 2v2 tension-filled battle is changing its tune when it comes to loadouts. Instead of being given a loadout at spawn, players can choose the armaments that they bring into this firefight.
“Consider how a stage might fare better with certain weapon types, then craft your best loadout and head into battle.
“Deathmatch Domination combines TDM and Domination into an epic mashup that rewards players for getting kills and playing the objective. Capture the flags and take down enemies in your path and both will push your team to victory on the scoreboard.
“Focus on staying alive while holding objective areas to maximize your team’s chances of getting the win.”
And for those still affected by the problems from last week’s COD download, Infinity Ward has provided an update.
This includes a workaround for those on PS4 that has been stuck in a downloading patch loop.
“We’ve learned that some PlayStation 4 players are experiencing update loops with the latest update for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare,” the message reads.
“If you’re having trouble trying to install the latest update, launch Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and select Co-op mode.
“This may take you to a blank product page, but a notification should appear in the upper-left corner, indicating that the Special Ops Pack is downloading. You can verify the 16.7GB download has started by going to the Notifications tab on the PlayStation homescreen.”
If this doesn’t resolve your issue, you can download the Special Ops Pack manually by following these steps:
- 1. Highlight the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare tile on the PlayStation homescreen.
- 2. Press down on the D-Pad and select PlayStation Store.
- 3. Select Your Add-Ons from the options on the right.
- 4. Select the 16.7GB Call of Duty: Modern Warfare – Special Ops Pack from the bottom of the list to start downloading.
- 5. You can verify the 16.7GB download has started by going to the Notifications tab on the PlayStation homescreen.
If no new Modern Warfare update is announced for January 28, more news could still be shared for later this week.
