Call of Duty will have “real-time voice chat moderation” to address toxic speech

In preparation for Modern Warfare 3, Activision has disclosed that it will include new real-time speech moderation tools to the Call of Duty online experience.

Activision plans to provide “global real-time voice chat moderation, at scale,” according to a blog post on the Call of Duty website. This will be done in order to “enforce against toxic speech, including hate speech.”

In North America, where the new capabilities for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 and Call of Duty: Warzone were added on August 30, a “initial beta rollout” of this new chat moderating system has already started. Following that, the new voice moderation methods will be nearly universally implemented on November 10 to coincide with the release of Modern Warfare 3. The system will be implemented everywhere in the world outside Asia.
