Call of Duty: Warzone is most likely COD: MW’s Battle Royale mode, may be a free standalone game

A couple of days ago, Activision teased the Battle Royale mode for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare. And from the looks of it, this BR mode will be called Call of Duty: Warzone. Not only that, but according to the latest rumours, COD: Warzone will be a free standalone game.

Let’s start with the title. A key art for Call of Duty: Warzone surfaced earlier yesterday on Reddit. According to a number of sources, this key art is legit. There is a possibility that this is fake, however – and from what we’ve heard so far – it appears to be legit.

Moreover, it appears that Call of Duty: Warzone will be a free to play standalone game. This basically means that even those that do not own Call of Duty: Modern Warfare will be able to play COD: Warzone.

Do note that this has not been confirmed as of yet, so take the “free to play” part with a grain of salt. At least for now. In my opinion, this is a clever move that will bring more players to the game. On the other hand, it’s the complete opposite of what Battlefield 5 and COD: Black Ops 4 did with their BR modes. So yeah, take it with a grain of salt. There is also no word on whether there will be cross-play support between different platforms.

We expect Activision and Infinity Ward to officially reveal Call of Duty: Warzone soon, so stay tuned for more!
