Question of the Week | 7-7-11

By Sledgehammer Games

I know it's a long shot but i would like to know if the upcoming title, MW3 multiplayer has the option for color blind gamers. i.e.. alternate colors like in Black Ops.

As a color blind gamer this will a big influence as to whether I buy the game.

Best regards,

Hi Nick,

Research suggests that as much as 6% of the general population suffers from Color Blindness, or more accurately Color Vision Deficiency. Men (9-12%) are 20x more likely to be afflicted than women (0.25-1%). Those numbers vary depending on which source you quote, but we estimate that nearly a million gamers are playing Call of Duty every day with this issue. I am happy to report that we are working on a Color Blind Assist option for Modern Warfare 3.

So start honing your MP skills, Nick. You won't be able blame your red-green deficiency for all that friendly-fire come November 8th.

Best,

Michael
