I'm seeing the wrong game image when I install.

– PlayStation and Xbox

Some players will encounter changes with how Call of Duty games are listed during the download and installation process. For example, some players who install Modern Warfare III from a physical disk may first see the Modern Warfare II icon and name listed until Call of Duty HQ has fully updated after a Day One patch to unlock Modern Warfare III. This is due to production lead times during ongoing Call of Duty HQ development.
