Since launch, PlayStation 5 owners have had to play Call of Duty: Warzone via backwards compatibility. That came with its perks — the gigantic Battle Royale FPS could be transferred to an external hard drive — but you always knew it was just a PS4 game in the back of your mind. That's all about to change, however, as Activision has finally confirmed a native PS5 version of Call of Duty: Warzone is now in development.
Speaking as part of a press briefing attended by Charlie Intel, Raven Software's creative director Amos Hodge revealed that a "dedicated technology team" is working on the upgraded version for PS5. The studio stopped short of revealing when it will be ready, but did confirm faster load times and 120HZ support will be part of the package. The team is also investigating whether or not a FOV slider can be added to the console versions.
That's all we know for now, but it is nice to hear that Call of Duty: Warzone will indeed be coming natively to PS5 one day in the future. Although, it does mean you're going to have to transfer it back onto your internal SSD. It'll take up a lot of room despite a recent file size reduction.
Are you excited about Call of Duty: Warzone finally coming to PS5? Let us know in the comments below.
Finally!! My friends and I have been clamoring for this!
Thanks god it’s coming at least… have been waiting for the support since November
Finally - fingers crossed this will fix this ridiculous bug which I haven’t seen anyone else encounter!! As soon as I parachute into the pre-game lobby, my screen goes black and white, and then turns all black (apart from the HUD). I haven’t been able to play a single game of Warzone on my PS5 and I have literally no idea how to fix it. Maybe this will help
@trest1945 This sort of happens to me on occasion too, except it's when you actually enter the match instead of the pre-game lobby. My screen will be completely black but I can hear all audio, and I'll eventually get the screen back like a quarter of the way through the drop sequence.
Anyone wanting to play this on their ps5 better have a spare console or they won't be able to play owt else.
Just hope that they include haptic feedback and adaptive triggers as playing cold war and then warzone with the exact same weapons just feels weird and like sometimes is missing.
This should mean that it will come separate from warzone+MW and won’t need to have both installed if you purchased warzone. Hate that they still haven’t/won’t let you download WZ without MW.
It takes up the whole hard drive though
Good stuff, can’t wait 🙌🏻
As fun as it may be, hackers and the massive chunk of hard drive space it eats are big turn offs for me.
Oh so it's not modern Warfare? Then I don't care.
Good news but not good news for my SSD space!
@EllZ89 I have warzone installed without modern warfare game itself.
@hoffa007 But have you purchased modern warfare digitally and before warzone came out? If no, then I believe you are allowed to download it separately. If yes, it is built into modern warfare AFAIK.
@EllZ89 only had modern warfare on disc but don't have it anymore and it's not installed either so just waezone is installed.
@hoffa007 ahh ok, I think when bought digitally, they’re tied together.
Probably takes up like one gazillion gb on your console with Activision saying "MaKe SuRe YoU mAkE sPaCe On YoUr CoNsOle!"
My god these character skins, is this Call of Duty or Monty Python’s flying circus? All of this rubbish can likely still be traced back to the success of Fortnite
@EllZ89 most likely, it is a pain though.
good, hopefully the next COD can be all about the multiplayer again . let warzone/br be its own separate thing as a COD spin-off. cod multiplayer has been mediocre since after black ops 3. please make COD's like MW2 and BO2 again.
