Call of Duty Vanguard’s Secrets of the Pacific event suspended due to glitches.
The Call of Duty: Vanguard Secrets of the Pacific event, part of a crossover with Call of Duty: Warzone. They aimed at preparing players for the launch of the new Caldera battle royale map in Warzone.
Unfortunately, the start of the new season one has been paused while the developers identify the source of widespread glitches in the FPS game.
Secrets of the Pacific got underway today, but it quickly got into trouble. Vanguard players reported crashes that sent them to the home screen.
Some reported that the crash appears to occur when someone uses the attack dogs killstreak in multiplayer, but so far Sledgehammer has not confirmed that this is the source of the bug.
Other players have said that the crash happens at random times, even when the attack dog’s killstreak is not active.
In any case, the developer has disabled the Secrets of the Pacific event, but has said that challenges that you have already completed in the short time it was available will not be affected; you will keep any progress you have made when the event returns.
The issue only seems to affect Vanguard, so Warzone players shouldn’t have to worry about this crash.
Activision Blizzard is facing a lawsuit filed in July by the state of California (since it expanded for quality assurance and customer service contractors) alleging years of discrimination and harassment.
Since then, CEO Bobby Kotick has called the company’s initial response “deaf,” employees have gone on strike, Blizzard President J Allen Brack has left, and the ABK Workers Alliance has demanded a change in the company. The lawsuit is ongoing; follow the latest news here.
In September, an agency of the US federal government opened an investigation into Activision Blizzard’s response to complaints of sexual misconduct and discrimination by its employees, part of which Kotick reportedly received a subpoena.
The company is also facing another lawsuit for unfair labor practices alleging “intimidation of workers and dismantling of unions” brought by a workers union, also in September.
In a separate development, Activision Blizzard reached an agreement with the United States Equal Employment Opportunity Commission “to resolve complaints and further strengthen policies and programs to prevent harassment and discrimination.”
In a subsequent letter to employees, the company announced an end to forced arbitration, a $ 250 million initiative to improve diversity, and a significant pay cut for Kotick.
A new report released in November now alleges that Bobby Kotick was aware of and suppressed reports of sexual misconduct.
Kotick has responded with an official statement saying that the Wall Street Journal article “paints an inaccurate and misleading view of our company, me personally, and my leadership.”
In response, the Activision Blizzard Board of Directors declared He “continues to trust” Kotick’s leadership.
