today, a Call of Duty Community Update gave fans a sneak peek at Warzone Season 2 and bigger releases on the horizon. Namely, the annual title for the fall, which has been confirmed as the much-talked-about sequel to the 2019 Modern Warfare reboot.

The blog post states that the upcoming sequel, as well as a new Warzone experience, will be jointly designed using a new engine “from the ground up”. Yes, Warzone is getting a successor, with the post adding that it will be a “massive evolution of Battle Royale” and will feature a new battleground and sandbox mode. Infinity Ward is at the helm of both titles.

Meanwhile, Season 2 of Call of Duty: Vanguard/Warzone kicks off on February 14th. For those who prefer to spend Valentine’s Day improving their K/D ratio and surviving the gulag, you can expect over 30 updates designed to make the experience more welcoming for newcomers and less frustrating in general, including:

  • Improvements to all forms of movement: vehicle handling, parachutes being deployed at a lower vertical height, increased player cloak height, and collision fixes for vehicles and players.
  • The Gas Mask animation no longer interrupts Operators aiming the crosshairs.
  • By inserting armor plates, he replenishes a full plate of armor before filling the damaged ones.
  • Performance and streaming issues, including Buy Station freezes, voice chat connectivity, and distorted graphics, on all platforms.
  • Specific Operator skins being invisible at certain distances.
  • Locks for Modern Warfare Multiplayer, which is linked to the Warzone launcher.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare launched in October 2019 and served as a reboot for the subseries that launched the franchise into the stratosphere. It stars a reimagined version of Captain Price, along with a new story and revamped multiplayer that has been well received by players and critics alike (including a 8.75/10 score of us). Call of Duty: Warzone builds on the success of Modern Warfare, combining it thematically, so it’s only fitting that the new Warzone follows in the footsteps of the original.

The future of Call of Duty has been a big discussion recently with Microsoft’s pending acquisition of Activision Blizzard. Mircosoft recently reiterated its plans to keep the franchise multiplatform even after existing contracts with Sony expire. It will be some time before we see the full ramifications of Call of Duty as an Xbox-owned franchise, but things look set to remain the same for the foreseeable future.
