Call of Duty: Warzone is a huge success, but there is some confusion about the game’s future. Activision has hinted that the game will live on and eventually get content from other major Call of Duty games, but there are also rumors that future CoD titles may have completely different Battle Royale modes. Well, in one new interview with GamesRadar, Infinity Ward design director Geoff Smith made it as clear as possible that Warzone will indeed be tied to different games over time …
We think it is extremely important that the game continues to evolve. From the beginning, we have strived to continuously provide new and different ways for fans to play and keep having fun in both Modern Warfare and Warzone. […] Although closely associated with Modern Warfare, Warzone has been designed as its own game from the start. As the game updates over time, it will evolve and connect with other games in the Call of Duty universe.
Clearly, Activision is the way to go – while main CoD fans are used to buying a new game every year, Battle Royale fans aren’t used to frequent updates like that. While it’s not yet been officially confirmed by Activision, Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War is pretty much a 2020 slot – it will be interesting to see what new content that game brings to Warzone. Shall we see a brand new Black Ops themed card? That would make sense, but we’ll just have to wait and see.
Call of Duty: Warzone is now available for free on PC, Xbox One and PS4. The game’s major Season 5 update, which makes a handful of significant changes to the map of Verdansk, will be available tomorrow – you can watch a trailer and some details here.
