CoD2 360 save-game patch

Multiplayer fixes another time.

Infinity Ward has released a small patch for the Xbox 360 version of Call of Duty 2, although those hoping for something to sort out the widely reported lag issues will be disappointed to learn that's not its focus.

"The update that was released today addresses a save game corruption issue that affected player progression for some people within the single player saved campaigns," says an Infinity Ward statement on the Xbox.com forums.

That problem actually saw people lose a big chunk of their progress; weirdly, Activision's previously released a level-select cheat to act as a stop-gap solution.

Fortunately for those of you who want to engage in World War II battles online, IW promises another update. Stuff's already in testing apparently, "including addressing the lag issues".

"Development is a timely process and we appreciate your patience. Infinity Ward is excited about your enthusiasm and support for Call of Duty 2 and we look forward to speaking with you soon," the statement tails off.
