Controversies surrounding Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2

::concepts



Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 is a first-person shooter video game released for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and Microsoft Windows on November 10, 2009. In addition to being a critically acclaimed best-seller, the game has been surrounded in controversy since its release mainly due to its violent depiction of a terrorist attack on a Russian airport. It has also come under fire by the PC community for its lack of dedicated servers and other features present in previous Call of Duty games, and from the Xbox 360 community for disabling the "party chat" system during some multiplayer matches.

The game was also released with a major glitch affecting its multiplayer mode; multiple accounts of players hacking the multiplayer on all consoles; and an in-game Easter egg which was deemed homophobic. Infinity Ward has also received criticism for producing a viral video that uses the word "fag".
