Racist abuse in online gaming is nothing new—it’s so common that in 2018 we did a roundup of the consequences for saying something racist in popular online games. Developers have struggled against it, usually with mixed results. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare studio Infinity Ward today committed to increasing resources to monitor and remove racist names and comments in the game, and apologized for not doing a better job of it already.

“There is no place for racist content in our game. This is an effort we began with launch and we need to do a better job,” the studio said in a message shared on Twitter. “We’re issuing thousands of daily bans and racist and hate-oriented names. But we know we have to do more.”
