The Call of Duty games are now showing a splash screen message in a bid to extend support the Black Lives campaign, reports Engadget.

“Our community is hurting. The systemic inequalities our community experiences are once again center stage,” read the message in support for the Black Lives Matter campaign.

“Call of Duty and Infinity Ward stand for equality and inclusion. We stand against the racism and injustice our Black community endures. Until change happens and Black Lives Matter, we will never truly be the community we strive to be,” it added.

According to TheVerge, the splash screen message is shown on the game for Sony PlayStation 4. The message, however, doesn't appear on the PC, the report added. The message can be seen when the Modern Warfare game is launched. It is also served when someone switches between different gaming modes.

Call of Duty developers had earlier announced they had stalled the release of the next seasons of their popular games including Warfare, Call of Duty Mobile, and Warzone. The move came in the wake of ongoing protests in the US over the death of George Floyd.

“While we look forward to playing the new seasons of Modern Warfare, Warzone, and Call of Duty Mobile, now is not the time. We are moving the launches of Modern Warfare Season 4 and Call of Duty: Mobile Season 7 to later dates. Right now it's time for those speaking up for equality, justice, and change to be seen and heard. We stand alongside you,” the dev team had said in a tweet.

Apart from Call of Duty, Google has also announced stalling the launch of Android 11 beta and a virtual event in order to support the ongoing protests.
