Many players are wondering how Call of Duty: Warzone will continue with the upcoming release of Warzone 2.0. Now publisher Activision brings light into the darkness.
In the course of a longer blog posts With regard to Call of Duty: Warzone 2.0, it is stated that the release of the sequel should not ensure that the original Warzone is dropped. On the contrary: Call of Duty: Warzone Caldera, as it will be called from now on, will continue to be playable.
Call of Duty: Warzone celebrates relaunch under a new name
According to the creators, the Warzone 2.0 release schedule also includes a relaunch for the original Battle Royale mode. This will go offline for a short time on November 16 at the end of the fifth Call of Duty: Vanguard season and will initially be replaced by Warzone 2.0, but will open its doors again later.
At the launch of Warzone 2.0 on November 16, the focus of the developers at Raven Software should first be on the new part in order to ensure a start with as few complications as possible. If all goes according to plan, Call of Duty: Warzone Caldera will be back online after the Thanksgiving holiday. The planned start date for the relaunch is November 28th.
What about Warzone’s cosmetic items?
Shortly after the announcement of the second part, many Warzone players shared their concern that they might have to do without their laboriously and sometimes expensively collected cosmetic items. However, this assumption is only partially true: Although the skins, Battle Pass content and purchases will not be transferred, they will remain with you in Warzone Caldera. Veterans who have already played the first part will also receive a special reward in Warzone 2.0.
Your player progress, weapon XP, inventory and other content from Modern Warfare, Warzone, Black Ops Cold War and Vanguard should also be available in Caldera (and the titles mentioned). Progress you make in Warzone 2.0 is tied exclusively to Modern Warfare 2, at least for now.
A similar, if not identical, process was followed by Activision Blizzard in Overwatch 2. Again, players kept their cosmetic items with the sequel, while the first part of the game was shut down entirely and replaced by its sequel.
Warzone Caldera will continue to have a standard Battle Royale playlist to choose from even after its successor launches. The in-game store, on the other hand, will probably not open its doors again. Call of Duty: Warzone is set to relaunch under its new name on November 28th. With your personalized legacy video you can relive your best memories until the start of Warzone 2.0.
