Call of Duty is a video game franchise that gained popularity in the early days of the shooter genre. It has been the subject of hard criticism in the past few years, due to the repetitive and unoriginal nature of their latest installments.

Despite receiving enough negative publicity already, the brand behind the game managed to strike again. The Chinese version of Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare has been shipped out to non-Chinese speaking countries, leaving customers unhappy and confused.

Hi. I just installed my IW Digital Deluxe Edition, which I had pre ordered earlier this year. The problem is that the game is in Chinese and there is no option for English in the language options inside the game. How do I change the language to English? I would really appreciate it if someone can help.

Gamers from other countries such as Singapore, but also Chinese residents that are not originally from China received the wrong game copy, and now can’t play it. While some are outraged and say they will ask for a refund, others are willing to accept a swap for the game version they wanted in the first place.

Fortunately, user CSA100 on the official Call of Duty forums has offered a solution that seem to work. According to him, users need to uninstall all their Call of Duty files and switch their location and time to UK from the language and region settings. When re-installing the game, the correct language version will be reinstalled as well.

Ok I have a fix, don’t refund. First uninstall all the COD IW files you got from the bundle. Then go to settings> system> language and location. Change location to UK and language to English(UK). Then reinstall all your files and it should be in English. It worked for me. Like if it works. Cheers!
