Right after calling off upcoming Call of Duty seasons, developer studio has added new loading screen to pledge their support to the cause. They are also planning to crack down on in-game racist content, remarks and usernames as well.

Whereas many corporate entities have voiced their support with protestor groups by speaking out against racism or donating money, Modern Warfare took a stance by replacing in-game screen with Black Lives Matter message.

Activision and Infinity Ward moved to take their stance shortly after Sony publicly announce postponing their recent PlayStation 5 reveal event in solidarity with other AAA-publishers like 2K Games, Electronic Arts, Rockstar Games and more.
