Infinity Ward Not Working on Loot Boxes for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare

Responding to rumors about plans for loot boxes coming to Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, Infinity Ward took to Twitter to say these are inaccurate, and that they "are definitely NOT working on any kind of supply drop or loot box system" for the upcoming military shooter (thanks WCCFTECH). That's pretty definitive for now, though it does not rule out the idea that they may work on such a system in the future. Here's the full statement:
Sigh. There continues to be misinformed and incorrect info being pushed about Modern Warfare. What I can say right now is that we are definitely NOT working on any kind of supply drop or loot box system. Also, functional stuff is unlocked through GAMEPLAY. Stay tuned, we're planning to release info this week.

"are definitely NOT working on any kind of supply drop or loot box system... for now"

Is "Call of Duty: Modern Warfare" an apt description of the on-going battle between publishers and consumers?

The game will not have loot box AT LAUNCH so it can easily pass lower ESRB standard. They can/will easily put that back after that.

The answer is in the title, Infinity Ward not working on loot boxes because they are completed.

Wait "Also, functional stuff is unlocked through GAMEPLAY" so every thing has to be behind a PlayWall? This is bullshit.

exactly my immediate thought - "THEY" aren't working on it, an outsourced team is..

After what seems like 10+ years of loot box crud in every game,.. I think I'm beginning to be cynical.?!?

I'll believe this when I see it, given Activision and all.
