Call of Duty Warzone: Modern Warfare Battle Royale LEAKED in new update? 1

Call of Duty Warzone game art has reportedly leaked online, alongside others details that have yet to be verified. A new image has been posted that suggests Activision is launching a new Battle Royale experience. This will be called Call of Duty Warzone and appears to be connected to Modern Warfare Season 2. The name Call of Duty Warzone has been shared online but the important piece of information came via the artwork, which looks legitimate.

It also features the character Ghost, who was recently added to Call of Duty Modern Warfare as part of Season 2.

So there’s a chance that this new Call of Duty Warzone is connected to Modern Warfare as a new mode. However, there are also rumours that this new Battle Royale experience will be separate from the latest COD game.

It’s claimed that it will be a free-to-play spin-off available on a number of leading platforms, consoles included. This new artwork doesn’t share any Modern Warfare logos on it, so it doesn’t rule out this rumour.

Other reports suggest that Raven Software is working on this standalone edition of COD Battle Royale. And this would lineup with something Coddy Johnson, President and Chief Operating Officer, said during a recent earnings report.

“So across console, PC, mobile and e-sports, the Call of Duty franchise has never been better positioned for growth and there is more to come, including entirely new experiences within the Modern Warfare universe,” Johnson said.

“And then, of course, in Q4 of this year, a new premium Call of Duty release, which is already generating excitement in our play tests.

“Finally, across the Activision portfolio, we are honoured to see the team is focused on high-quality world-class content recognized by the industry, the 2019 game rewards.”

This shouldn’t be taken as a confirmation that a Battle Royale mode is coming but it certainly doesn’t rule it out.

Activision also teased that Call of Duty fans could expect some “surprises” as part of future Modern Warfare updates. Rob Kostich, Activision’s president, made these comments during the same investors call.

Kostich said there was a “great pipeline of new content” in the works for Modern Warfare and that Activision is in it for “the long haul”. Battle Royale wasn’t explicitly mentioned, but it could be the “surprise” the Activision bigwig referred to.
