Call of Duty: Black Ops Will Still Block Party Chat In Some Modes

October 5, 2010, By Christian Davis

Infinity Ward’s Modern Warfare 2 had the great idea of not allowing the Xbox 360’s Private Chat feature in some of their game types. Not everyone liked it, but it prevented people from cheating by talking to others when a player is out for the round, like Search and Destroy.

That feature is still here in Black Ops but Treyarch states that it will be in fewer modes. Dan Hunting, Treyarch’s online director, says “we have that same restriction in certain playlists where they can use party chat to exploit the game mode.”

This feature will not be seen in Team Deathmatch however. It didn’t make sense to have there in the first place and Treyarch knows that. Taking it out completely would be a mistake because of said reasons above. It’s there for a reason and if you don’t like who you’re playing against, just mute them. Easy as that.

Call of Duty: Black Ops is set to release on November 9th.
