“We want enough time where players can get familiar with everything, they can understand what’s happening within the game and start to build those restrictions within the game,” said Greg Reisdorf, Sledgehammer’s multiplayer creative director.
Although no details have been shared about how the mode will work yet, it’s expected the mode will continue to encourage players to climb Skills Divisions and earn SR along the way.
The current version of MW2 Ranked Play requires players to follow the rules and restrictions of the Call of Duty League (CDL). If you’re not familiar with the CDL format, this has players play Search and Destroy, Hardpoint, and Control in 4v4 matches with specific weapon restrictions in place.
