The game isn’t being shut down but Call Of Duty: Warzone won’t see any more significant updates now the sequel is coming out.
While Activision has said that Call Of Duty: Warzone 2.0 isn’t replacing the original Warzone, and the two will run side-by-side, it obviously considers the sequel more of a priority.
This is why it’s not surprising to hear that Call Of Duty: Warzone has received its final major update, before Warzone 2.0 launches in November.
What this means is that the original Warzone now won’t see any new content additions and just get the occasional bug-fixing patch, since Activision will want people to flock to the newer Warzone 2.0 instead.
This update is roughly 6GB and aside from the usual bug fixes and adjustments, developer Raven Software has some final pieces of content to celebrate Warzone’s closing chapter and thank the player base.
For starters, a bunch of classic and fan favourite game modes are being brought back and will be rotated weekly. This includes a newly refined version of Resurgence called Resurgence Supreme, which makes a number of changes, like increased player health, and gives all weapons their most legendary skins.
New calling cards that reference key moments throughout the game’s lifetime are also being given away for free to all players, and you can already view the game’s new cinematic outro on the official Twitter account.
‘We wanted to take a moment to thank our players for joining us on this journey. We have learned so much this year and have come such a long way together since we launched the Pacific chapter in December of last year,’ reads a message from Raven Software.
‘We would also like to extend thanks to all our partners at High Moon Studios, Beenox, Toys for Bob, Sledgehammer Games, Treyarch, Infinity Ward, Demonware, Activision, and Team Ricochet. Without these teams, this year’s wealth of content would not have been possible.’
How much longer Warzone will continue to operate hasn’t been revealed yet, but it’ll be interesting to see how much of the player base jumps ship to Warzone 2.0, and how many of them will want to stay.
Before that, Activision will be launching Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, which recently wrapped up its beta period. Activision has described it as its most successful Call Of Duty beta ever, yet a lot of angry fans have been less than positive about it.
Call Of Duty: Warzone is available for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.
