THE BUZZ: Infinity Ward’s Robert Bowling has revealed that Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 will feature an “on the fly” update system.

The developer plans to amend the game with map packs and other DLC in way that is much easier to deploy than Modern Warfare 2, and will also be able to make balance tweaks without the need of a patch.

Speaking with Gamer247, Bowling revealed:

“So now as we’re advancing content and releasing new maps on multiplayer, we can also further tweak them to also be playable in Spec Ops, and then look at how we can update the game further in other ways like new modes, weapons – whatever we wanna do.”

“So we’ve done a lot of work on the back-end that allows us to update more easily and quickly,” he continued, “and that’s helpful for DLC, but it’s also helpful for post-launch support – listening to feedback.  Maybe there’s stuff we want to re-balance.  Maybe there’s stuff we wanna patch.  We have a lot more control in tweaking the game now, outside of a patch, than we ever did before.”

EGM’s TAKE: It seems that more developers are adopting this method of updating their games and it makes sense for the Call of Duty franchise to join the party.  Now, instead of waiting 2 weeks for a patch to pass through certification, the team can simply make whatever changes are needed straight away.

Would you like to see more developers adopt this approach?
