Hot on the heels of that reveal trailer for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 comes the news that Warzone 2.0, the next iteration of Call of Duty's take on the Battle Royale formula, will be launching in 2022.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 is releasing on virtually everything with a microchip on 28th October, so that's Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, PC via Battle.net, and most importantly of all, PS5 and PS4.
In a post over on the Call of Duty blog, Activision outlined a bunch of information regarding Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 in general, but the part regarding Warzone specifically reads:
"October 28 marks a new beginning for Call of Duty, starting with the release of Modern Warfare II. Soon after, a wholly new Warzone will launch as an extension of the Modern Warfare II universe. With it comes new technology, new features, and new gameplay that work seamlessly together."
It continues: "Throughout, we have taken a wide range of community feedback to heart. In order to fully deliver this state-of-the-art experience, Warzone 2.0 will feature new Modern Warfare II content and systems with brand-new progression and inventories. Today’s Warzone will continue as a separate experience that will include a continuation of player progression and inventories within that Warzone experience. We can’t wait to share more details soon."
"Development on the all-new, dynamic Warzone 2.0 experience is also being led by Infinity Ward, along with Raven Software. The new, free-to-play battle royale Warzone also features the same technology powering Modern Warfare II, so both titles leverage the Call of Duty engine that first debuted with Modern Warfare (2019), providing the most seamless and advanced Call of Duty experiences ever."
