One of Call of Duty Modern Warfare’s Most Popular Modes Could Be Part of Future Entries
Call of Duty Modern Warfare’s free battle royale mode, Warzone, has really taken off since launching in March and gaining over 50 million players in the mode’s first month. Could a version of the popular mode be featured in future Call of Duty games?
According to Infinity Ward’s narrative director Taylor Kurosaki, the mode “will be the one constant” of the next games in the series.
Kurosaki told French gaming news outlet GamerGen that the franchise is “in kind of uncharted territories” in regards to Warzone and explained that the mode has made Call of Duty’s studios rethink their content output.
“Call of Duty is a genre in itself, there are different branches in the Call of Duty tree, but they’re all connected in some ways,” he said. “Warzone will be the through line that connects all of the different various sub-franchises of Call of Duty. It’s going to be really cool to see how the different sub-franchises sort of come in and out of focus, but Warzone will be the one constant.”
Kurosaki also said that Infinity Ward is planning to release next-gen ports for Warzone: “I know that our plan is Warzone is going to be around for quite some time, so as soon as those new systems are out and available I’m sure we’ll support them.”
