The supposed release date for Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare's long-rumoured battle royale mode has leaked once again. It sounds as if Warzone will be arriving as a free-to-play standalone mode next Tuesday, March 10th. Infinity Ward first teased the existence of a battle royale mode in an in-game cinematic around three weeks ago, but the developer has been silent on the matter ever since, leaving fans to speculate as to when to mode might finally land.
This latest report comes via Twitter user @Okami13, who previously accurately predicted the Modern Warfare Gunfight alpha before it was announced. This lines up nicely with reports from last month that suggested the mode would be dropping in early March - either on the 3rd or the 10th. Obviously it didn't arrive with this week's update, so the 10th is looking far more likely.
- Warzone is launching March 10th- Okami (@Okami13_) March 5, 2020
- Trailer is ready. It's coming either on Thursday or on Monday.
- Free to play
- Squads only
- Will be in its own separate client
When all of this comes true you will know I'm right about MW2R coming this year.
As you can see from the above tweet, Okami13 suggested Thursday or Monday would see the release of a new trailer announcing Warzone once and for all. Thursday has of course been and gone with no sign of any such trailer, so I imagine we'll be seeing something on Monday, with a full release for the mode the following day.
Okami13 also backed a bit of what we'd previously heard about Warzone. Specifically that the mode will be free-to-play with an option for any players to "upgrade" to the full version of Modern Warfare if they so wish. However, despite earlier reports suggesting that Warzone would support solo, duos, and four-player matches, Okami13 understands that it'll only support four-player squads... at least at first.
Other currently unconfirmed rumours regarding Warzone suggest that the mode will support up to 200 players and take place across an expansive map made up of familiar and brand-new locations. Among these locations is, according to dataminers, a Gulag where downed players will be able to 1v1 for a chance to revive and rejoin the battle.
It's also been said that Warzone is being worked on by Raven Software, the studio that typically offers support across all Call Of Duty titles. It all sounds terribly exciting, but as always we'll have to wait for official confirmation before we can get too into the idea of a Modern Warfare battle royale. By all accounts, it sounds like we don't have much longer to wait.
