Modern Warfare 3 DLC Profile Lock Fix In The Works


Piazza, a new map from the recently released MW3 DLC

Gamers who wanted to use the new maps from the first Modern Warfare 3 DLC drop on other profiles were treated to a rude surprise when they found that the DLC was locked to one profile. This was contrary to the terms of the Call of Duty Elite service that the maps were provided through.

Robert Bowling, Creative Strategist of Infinity Ward, said the studio was aware of the issue and was working on a fix. In a statement to Joystiq, Bowling said,

We understand that ELITE Premium Members on Xbox Live who purchased the latest DLC Content Drop for Modern Warfare 3 are unable to access that content while signed into other profiles on the same console that originally downloaded the content. This is unintentional and we will work to get an update out as soon as possible that corrects this issue and allows you to continue to enjoy the new maps.

With all of the issues gamers have been crying foul about concerning Modern Warfare 3, this appears to be just the latest episode in the saga. What do you think, gamers? A simple mistake or another example of a reckless oversight? Let us know below in the comments.
