Community disappointed with Activision’s approach

Seeing the smooth experience in Splitgate has caused the Call of Duty community to feel very disappointed with their game. For months, they have asked the developers at Raven Software to provide a solution for a problem like this. However, it has never arrived, and this has made them feel quite disheartened because the developers don’t have any excuses.
