Is Call of Duty: Modern Warfare getting a Battle Royale mode?

Is Call of Duty: Modern Warfare getting a Battle Royale mode?

At the beginning of the month, Activision Blizzard revealed its financial results for the past year. We talked about the Activision branch in a previous article, more exactly about the Call of Duty license. On that occasion, we learned that a new installment in the Call of Duty series will be released in 2020, but also that Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is getting new content.

And it seems that the nature of what awaits us in Modern Warfare this year is becoming more and more precise. It's been a while since some rumors have been circulating about adding a battle royale mode to the game. Indeed, about three months ago, the data miner Senescallo found some clues in the game files. But the story has taken a completely different turn during the past few days.


Since the last update of the game, which introduced season 2, a new "classified" tab has appeared on the game menu. It's inaccessible right now but many players think that it is the future battle royale mode, Warzone. Some Call of Duty: Modern Warfare players even reported having been confronted with what looks very much like a bug, which allowed them to discover a lobby still unknown until then. Obviously, some people have taken advantage of the opportunity to publish fake screenshots and videos, and it seems that Activision has tracked players who shared content on this subject.

This is only a small part of everything that is currently circulating as rumors. Some sources close to insiders like VGC are talking about a Warzone mode launch in March, saying that it would be completely free-to-play, even for players who do not have Call of Duty Modern: Warfare. Although some pieces of information sound more credible than others, you need to keep in mind that nothing official has been announced by Infinity Ward or Activision yet, even if it's almost sure that there is something in the works.
