Sledgehammer’s Condrey: We’ve a “low tolerance for toxic behaviour” in Advanced Warfare

Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare lead designer, Sledgehammer Games’ Michael Condrey, asserted that his development studio has a “low tolerance for toxic behaviour” when it comes to the game.

Moreover, he defended the majority of Call of Duty‘s fanbase in a recent interview with the BBC.

“I certainly wouldn’t characterize the community of fans I know and had the pleasure to engage with as toxic or misogynistic,” Condrey said. “The community as a whole is very healthy, engaged and thoughtful and probably like anything anywhere well outside of gaming.”

“Come to the game to have fun, come to be social, come to enjoy and build a community and have a positive energy,” he continued. “Toxic behaviors, abusive language, inappropriate emblems, I don’t want that around… So for our community, Sledgehammer Games and Advanced Warfare we have pretty low tolerance for toxic behaviour.”
