Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 will feature a Colour Blind assist option, Sledgehammer Games has revealed.
Answering a 'Question of the Week' from a colour blind fan on its blog, Michael Condrey, VP and COO of Sledgehammer confirmed that, like Black Ops, Modern Warfare 3 would indeed support the needs of colour blind players.
"Research suggests that as much as 6% of the general population suffers from Color Blindness, or more accurately Colour Vision Deficiency. Men (9-12%) are 20x more likely to be afflicted than women (0.25-1%). Those numbers vary depending on which source you quote, but we estimate that nearly a million gamers are playing Call of Duty every day with this issue. I am happy to report that we are working on a Colour Blind Assist option for Modern Warfare 3."
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 launches November 8, with the very first Call of Duty Convention - branded Call of Duty XP - taking place September 2-3 in LA.
