Modern Warfare 3 to have a separate control scheme designed for disabled players

Posted on October 15, 2011 - 2:31pm by Ryan Conway

A recent Twitter exchange involving Infinity Ward's creative strategist Robert Bowling, suggests that Modern Warfare 3 will have a special control scheme designed specifically for disabled gamers.  

The whole thing started when a fan asked Bowling if his disabled brother would be able to adjust the game’s controls.

Here's Bowling's response:

“We have a unique control scheme for disabled players that we specifically crafted with some of our disabled fans feedback.”

No details about these control settings were given but we can also say that there will also be a special feature that will allow color-blind players to change the red and green indicators to orange and blue.

It’s nice to see that Infinity Ward is thinking about stuff like this, as it will allow even more people who previously may not have been able to enjoy this wonderful medium that we all love, the chance to do the same.

Here’s hoping that more developers follow in their footsteps.
