The sequel to Call of Duty: Warzone, Activision’s uber-popular battle royale game, is apparently right around the corner.
Based on a supposed leak of Activision Blizzard games World of Warcraft, Overwatch, and CoD, the release date for Warzone 2 is set for Nov. 16. The screengrab that was leaked lists Warzone 2’s global launch for 12pm CT on Wednesday, Nov. 16, a few weeks after the Oct. 28 global launch of Modern Warfare II, which is listed as COD Cortez in the screengrab.
A mid-November release date would likely be ideal for many CoD fans, who can try out MW2, the newest installment in the iconic franchise, for a few weeks before Warzone 2 might be released. Additionally, the campaign for MW2 will be a part of early access for players who pre-order MW2, so this could allow CoD fans to enjoy new content for about a month straight.
When Activision revealed the release date of MW2 on June 8, it said that Warzone 2.0, an unofficial title of the upcoming battle royale game, would arrive “soon after” MW2 drops in late October. Other than that, the news that the RICOCHET Anti-Cheat would be available on launch day, and a few general statements about it being a new experience, Activision has said very little about the new Warzone game.
Several leaks and rumors have led players to believe they will be faced with a new inventory system, a new map, and new weapons. But Warzone fans will have to wait patiently to see whether these leaks prove to be true.
