Infinity Ward Acknowledges CoD Hacks, Blames PS3

Creative Strategist from Infinity Ward has spoken on behalf of the development team and has acknowledged the recent outburst of hackers on Modern Warfare 2 and Call of Duty 4.

Robert Bowling gave a little in-sight into how this has happened, informing readers of the post that it’s to do with the recent “breach of security” on the PlayStation 3 — something I’m pretty sure you’re all familiar with at this time.

“Games rely on the security of the encryption on the platforms they’re played on, therefore; updates to the game through patches will not resolve this problem, unless the security exploit itself is resolved on the platform. Regretfully, Call of Duty games are receiving the bulk of the hacker’s attention, due to its high player counts and popularity. However, the number of legitimate players severely outweighs the bad apples,” he wrote.
