Activision has debuted the latest entry to its bestselling shooter, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, reviving its hit subseries centered on modern-day combat. Setting out to capture the challenges of today's warzones, it delivers an experience spanning specialist operations to guerrilla warfare. Backed by a strong narrative and multiplayer offerings, Modern Warfare's revival packs a ton for shooter fans.
Updated October 25, 2019: Activision has deployed a new title update packing various changes, including "backend fixes" to help reduce crashes. While Xbox One X users still appear to be experiencing issues, some may see a reduced impact.
However, while Modern Warfare has hit store shelves, the game is causing issues for Microsoft's latest flagship console. Xbox One X users are reporting crashes when playing the title, with instances of the game freezing or console shutting down entirely. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare developer, Infinity Ward, has responded to feedback, assuring the studio is "already working on a fix."
We are seeing a small number of Xbox One X players experience crashes with Modern Warfare. We are already working on a fix. Thanks for your patience and feedback. We will keep you posted.We are seeing a small number of Xbox One X players experience crashes with Modern Warfare. We are already working on a fix. Thanks for your patience and feedback.

While some users have reported issues across the Xbox One family, crashes appear to be most prevalent for Xbox One X users. Unfortunately, no workaround has been provided as of publication, meaning you'll need to sit tight until an update is delivered. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare isn't the only title to experience issues with Xbox One X, with Borderlands 3 and Anthem among those affected at launch in 2019.
In the meantime, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is now available on Xbox One, starting at $60 via Amazon.

Warfare is Modern again
Developed by Infinity Ward, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare takes the concept of modern combat and reapplies it, with familiar characters in unfamiliar situations.
PlayStation paid money to get this done some say 🤑😂
Sad thing is that this was a issue in the beta and they knew it then so how come they never fixed it from the beta till now? I'm glad I skipped this game for now that's a shame
One more reason to boycott Activision-Blizzard.
Thankfully, I had zero issues with this game. However I understand that not everyone's experience. These development teams can't be doing this on closed platforms, it supposed to be easier to dev for a reason. Closed hardware is always the same and shouldn't have these crashing issues.
