Call of Duty patch imminent

Infinity Ward to quash bunny hopping and consider cheat protection.

Blue's News reports today that a Call of Duty patch is coming soon. Activision has apparently been in touch to say that they have been listening to concerns about the World War II themed first-person shooter, and that they have been taken on board.

"Infinity Ward is working now to complete the first upgrade meant to address several issues like bunny hopping, etc," an Activision spokesperson wrote. "The guys at Infinity Ward are currently considering the best way to address cheat protection," he added, promising to deliver more news as soon as possible.

Since its release, Call of Duty has become one of the more popular recent online FPS titles, with over two thousand servers and players online at the time of writing. Older titles like UT2003, Battlefield 1942 and Enemy Territory, the free-to-download multiplayer component for Return to Castle Wolfenstein, all manage over three thousand players, although none can seemingly compete with the mighty Half-Life. With its sequel still caught up in a quagmire of half-truths and speculation, the seminal 1999 FPS boasts more nearly 45,000 players at the time of writing.
