The studio says that even if it already bans users for offensive names, there will be additional countermeasures to make sure racist names don’t slip past their filters.

This includes adding “[A]conditional resources to monitor and ID racist content, [A]dding additional reporting systems in the game to increase the number of bans per hour, [A]dding filters and major restrictions on name changes, [E]evaluate game improvements to make reporting easier, [and] [I]ncreasing permanent bans for exterminating repeat offenders. “

In a statement, Infinity Ward says: “There is no place for racist content in our game. This is an effort we started with the launch and we need to do a better job. We issue thousands of daily bans on racist and hate-oriented names. But we know we have more to do. “
