Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 developer Infinity Ward has hired a team of intense testers to weed out any and all glitches and bugs in the upcoming game’s multiplayer content, new reports suggest.
Joining Infinity Ward’s already extensive offering of in-house testers the developer has reportedly hired the services of the mapMonkeys, a team of gamers with a reputation of being the pinnacle pre-release testing priding themselves on outing glitches and sections of broken code that could give gamers an unfair advantage in multiplayer modes.
“They’re a great addition to an already rigorous QA process that the internal team here at Infinity Ward / Sledgehammer and additionally at Activision have been doing since development began,” Robert Bowling a creative strategist at Infinity Ward said.
“While we’ve been hammering away testing on it since it’s been up and running, these guys focus specifically on exploits that can potentially be used to an unfair advantage, such as getting outside a map’s playable area, inside geo, or find weapon / equipment exploits that were not intended by the designer so that we can catch and address these before it gets out to the public.”
The Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 release date has been set for November 8th with the world’s gaming fans likely to top the record set during last year’s Black Ops release which saw more than 1 million gamers playing online multiplayer modes on the night of launch.
