In the reviews gamers are reporting a wide variety of issues, including the implementation of peer to peer multiplayer instead of the expected dedicated servers, framerate stuttering on high-end PCs, crashes on launch that prevent players from playing at all, crashes during gameplay, and insufficient field of view range options.

The game is currently in development at two studios, Sledgehammer Games and Raven Software, and is scheduled to launch in November.

The multiplayer game modes are partially developed in cooperation with Raven Software. The PC gaming community considers the studio to be responsible for the poor multiplayer functionality that was featured in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered.

Activision has yet to comment on the many negative reviews the PC open beta has received. The developers of the game have yet to comment on any of the messages posted on the game's Steam Community hub.
