Raven Software announces that it's finally investigating issues surrounding Call of Duty: Warzone's broken Battle Pass progression.

p>Raven Software continues to grapple with several significant issues in Call of Duty: Warzone that frustrate the battle royale's players. For the most part, though, Raven has acknowledged these issues and listed them as being investigated. It's rare for a prominent issue in Call of Duty: Warzone to go long without being acknowledged, given how vocal the fanbase is. To many's surprise, an issue tied to Call of Duty: Warzone's battle pass appeared to be ignored for several weeks, but has now garnered the attention of Raven.

The current battle pass in Call of Duty: Warzone started without controversy, largely because it launched with a double XP weekend. However, as time went on more and more players began to feel like something was wrong with Call of Duty: Warzone's battle pass progression system. They weren't acquiring XP at a meaningful rate, or players saw that others who played less were somehow ahead of them in battle pass progression. This criticism mostly spread in March and has persisted throughout the month.

Yet Raven Software has only acknowledged the issue now. On Thursday, March 31, Raven posted a message saying that it's investigating an issue where Call of Duty: Warzone players aren't' receiving the correct amount of Battle Pass XP. The issue has officially been added to Raven's development Trello, where the issue was yet to otherwise be acknowledged.

It's obviously a more complicated situation than Call of Duty: Warzone players claiming there's an issue and Raven immediately responding with an investigation. This issue in particular didn't provide any specifics about the problem. All players knew was that something felt wonky and they weren't getting the right XP. The causes for that could be myriad, or it could have been Call of Duty: Warzone's intended design. In other words, there's likely a good reason that Raven took so long to acknowledge the problem.

Now that it has acknowledged the problem, however, it vindicates a lot of Call of Duty: Warzone players who felt like Raven wasn't acknowledging a bug that was very much wasting their time. Those players have spent a lot of time in Call of Duty: Warzone not getting the right amount of XP. They'll likely continue to do so as Raven starts investigating the problem.

The hope is that Raven took the previous month to figure out what the specific issue is with battle pass progression in Call of Duty: Warzone. This update would then mean that it's working on a fix. Of course, it's also possible that it's only just starting to investigate, and a fix could be weeks or months away. Whatever the answer, it's a frustrating situation. At least players who haven't been getting the right amount of XP know they were right, now. It wasn't just their imagination.

Call of Duty: Warzone is available now on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.
