Call of Duty: Modern Warfare battle royale is called Warzone – and the first footage has leaked

The Call of Duty: Modern Warfare battle royale mode War zone. This is evident after several players managed to enter the new mode via glitches.

After the news that Modern Warfare Season 2 got character Ghost and map Rust, it now seems almost certain that the highly anticipated battle royale mode for Modern Warfare is coming.

Promo material for Warzone leaked on Reddit and was confirmed by industry source TheGamingRevolution on Twitter. According to the latter, Warzone would not only be available from the main menu of Modern Warfare, but can also be downloaded separately for free.

That way, Warzone would compete directly with Fortnite, which is currently slacking as Fortnite concludes Chapter 2 Season 1. By acting as a standalone product, Warzone could also get updates over time and possibly co-exist with Call of Duty 2020 – as opposed to the great Black Ops 4 – Blackout that has been virtually ignored since the arrival of Modern Warfare.

Warzone would also have some innovative features, according to this initial information. For example, there are ‘drop kits’ that are customizable for a match and would contain specific configurations of weapons. Previously, there were rumors that the mode would have 200 players, a giant map and a Gulag.

Also on Call of Duty, Activision has confirmed that Call of Duty 2020 and “plenty of remasters” are on the way.
