Infinity Ward plans to roll out a number of competitive gaming focussed updates for Call of Duty: Ghosts, according to a post on the game's community page, including changes to the broadcaster mode and competitive rules. The company is also looking into adding Xbox One LAN support.
"These will appear as both hot fixes and TUs in the coming weeks alongside planned changes to the areas of Ghosts affecting all players, such as spawns," wrote senior community manager Tina Palacios. "As a guiding principle, development priority is assigned to those issues which we deem to have the largest immediate impact or those affecting the broadest group of players."
eSports-specific changes, based on feedback from the competitive community, will be made in the "immediate future." The proposed fixes include the restriction of ghillie suits, tracker sights and danger close in competitive rules and third-person spectating in competitive private matches will be disabled. Broadcaster mode stability will be addressed and a kill feed will be added to the mode.
After the above changes are implemented, Infinity Ward plans to introduce additional changes to the rules, search and destroy mode and broadcaster mode. The modifications include the addition of eSports rules to Clan vs. Clan playlist and the removal of split-screen in private match when eSports rules are enabled. The full list of changes are listed on the Call Of Duty Community website and further updates will be posted on the Upcoming Improvements to Call of Duty: Ghosts page.
