Controversy Surrounds Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3’s Trophy List on PlayStation 5

Concerns Arise as Modern Warfare 3's Trophy List Appears Linked to Modern Warfare 2 on PS5

In response to PowerPyx’s findings, Push Square proposed a theory that Modern Warfare 3’s absence of a platinum trophy and standalone trophy list on the PS5 may be connected to the Call of Duty HQ launcher app. This app serves as a central hub for Call of Duty players to access the franchise’s recent titles. Activision might aim to replicate this approach on the PS5 and may have designated Modern Warfare 2 as the “lead name” under which all Call of Duty content falls, starting with its sequel. However, it’s worth noting that various game developers have managed video game collections without amalgamating the trophy lists of the individual games.

While this explanation holds merit, there remains a possibility that Activision may have encountered an oversight in configuring the PS5 trophy list for Modern Warfare 3. It’s plausible that they intended to assign a platinum trophy and an independent trophy list for the game, akin to their approach on the PS4. Nevertheless, this revelation has sparked a wave of discontent among Call of Duty enthusiasts and trophy hunters, with many expressing their dissatisfaction with the notion of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 potentially being perceived as a $70 DLC for its forerunner. Activision may need to address this issue in the near future to allay concerns and uncertainties.
