Call of Duty developers that levelled criticism at Kratos voice actor Christopher Judge for joking about the length of Modern Warfare 3's campaign at The Game Awards have walked their initial comments back, citing frustration at the industry's current state.

After Judge's joke (which was self-deprecating at its core, making light of how long he spent on stage last year), several Tweets from Call of Duty developers went viral, with plenty of strong opinions from fans of both franchises thrown in for good measure.

In the days since several of these statements have been walked back. As chronicled by PlayStation LifeStyle, Sledgehammer Games' Darcy Sandall and former Infinity Ward developer Ajinkya Limaye have apologised, explaining that the initial anger was more at the state of the industry and added time constraints placed on the development of Modern Warfare 3.

It's important to remember that real people staff developers at the end of the day, and sometimes, even taking a well-intentioned shot at a game produced by a massive company like Activision, can have unintended consequences.
