Players starting Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and Warzone at this time will be asked to download an update, and a new splash screen has been added to the game announcing support for Black Lives Matter. The screen, reported by The Verge, contains a message for the Call of Duty gaming community.

“Our community is suffering,” reads the screen. “The systemic inequalities that our community experiences are once again at the center of the scene. Call of Duty and Infinity Ward represent equality and inclusion. We oppose the racism and injustice that our black community endures. Until the change happens and Black Lives Matter, we will never really be the community that we strive to be. ”

The screen will appear for all players when the game starts, and The Verge reports that it also appears on the loading screens and when switching between modes.

While Call of Duty has long been known to have many toxic players, it is one of the many efforts being made or promised at the moment to combat racism among the player base. Season 4 was delayed after the murder of George Floyd, and Infinity Ward has promised to fight racism in the game with improved countermeasures.

Infinity Ward is one of many developers and publishers who have addressed current world events and pledged support for the Black Lives Matter.

GameSpot wants to encourage readers to donate to Black Lives Matter and seek out black voices in the media.
