Call of Duty: Warzone 2.0’s Launch Plan Includes a Relaunch for the Original
Call of Duty: Warzone 2.0 is almost available. Fans of the franchise have been frothing at the mouth to find out what the sequel has to offer. However, many players have some questions about what the sequel is going to mean for the original game.
According to Activision, the arrival of Call of Duty: Warzone 2.0 does not mean that they are shutting down the original game. In fact, they want the gaming public to know that the original title will become Warzone Caldera. Fans can still continue to play it—once the intermission in its service is over.
Devs prepared a launch plan for the sequel. This plan includes a re-release for the original installment. Starting 11am EST on November 16th, Warzone will go offline. This is around the same time that the fifth and current season of Vanguard ends. After 1pm ESt that same day, Warzone 2.0 will come online. The game will be available for all players to participate in for absolutely free.
Developer Raven Software will have their focus on Call of Duty: Warzone 2.0. Devs want to make sure that the sequel has a smooth launch. They want to ensure that the franchise’s following enjoys a “free-to-play ecosystem” that they hope will be “running effectively.”
Devs will be having a quick break for the Thanksgiving Holiday. Once back at work, they will be bringing the original Warzone game back online under its new title. At the moment, it is due for release on November 28th.
When the game became offline, fans immediately started to be concerned that the original game would be offline forever. They became even more worried after it was found out that cosmetic items are not going to transfer over to the sequel. The good news is that all of their cosmetics will remain available when Warzone Caldera gets back online.
