Call of Duty Warzone could land sooner than we thought

Call of Duty Warzone is the much-awaited battle royale edition of Call of Duty and now, according to a new report, you might not have long to wait much longer to play it. 

Masterminded by Infinity Ward and Raven Software, the game will be with us in early March, ‘development sources’ told VGC. Not so long ago Call of Duty Warzone data was found in Modern Warfare game files, hinting that the game was on its way.

According to VGC the source indicated that the game-mode is still a few weeks away, with Tuesday March 10 looking a likely date.

Call of Duty Warzone, will be released as a free standalone game. The title will present players with the option to ‘upgrade’ and purchase Modern Warfare in its entirety. The game’s developers hope this tie-in will drive more sales as well as introducing new gamers to the franchise.

In terms of marketing, sales and the potential success of the game – it’s likely to do very well and attract a lot of interest. When Modern Warfare launched, it went straight to the top of the PS4 download charts. Meanwhile, Call of Duty Mobile has also been wildly popular.

So, there is clearly huge demand for the IP. Any Call of Duty release has a great start in the market and we expect Call of Duty Warzone to attract a lot of attention on release. It combines a popular series, with a hugely popular game mode. Barring a major slip-up it’s hard to see this failing for the developers.

The Call of Duty Warzone map combines locations from existing ‘Ground War’ maps. Boneyard, Port, Quarry and others are all included.

If the game builds on the enjoyable experience of Modern Warfare, we’re sure it will entertain gamers.

When we got our hands on the most recent Call of Duty release, our reviewer Jade King said: “Infinity Ward’s reboot of the iconic classic doesn’t surpass the original, but does a fantastic job of translating its formula into the modern era. A thrilling solo campaign alongside a robust selection of multiplayer options ensure this package is well worth a visit, even if the long-awaited return of Special Ops just about misses the mark.”
