Modern Warfare 3 & Color Blindness

The Sledgehammer Games Blog responds to their question of the week, saying that in designing Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 they are making efforts at accommodating gamers like myself with Color Vision Deficiency (thanks Computer and Video Games). The post shows they appreciate the problems this causes in games that do not take this into account:

Research suggests that as much as 6% of the general population suffers from Color Blindness, or more accurately Color Vision Deficiency. Men (9-12%) are 20x more likely to be afflicted than women (0.25-1%). Those numbers vary depending on which source you quote, but we estimate that nearly a million gamers are playing Call of Duty every day with this issue. I am happy to report that we are working on a Color Blind Assist option for Modern Warfare 3.

So start honing your MP skills, Nick. You won’t be able blame your red-green deficiency for all that friendly-fire come November 8th.
