As time continues, so does the annual release cycle for the Call of Duty franchise. With Sledgehammer Games’ Call of Duty: Vanguard nearly finishing its annual timeframe, the new installment is sure to be unveiled soon. In the past, Infinity Ward did press the next game will be a continuation of 2019’s Call of Duty: Modern Warfare atop of verifying that a new entry for Warzone is also on the way.

Well weeks after, Activision officially unveiled Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II whilst simultaneously announcing the next battle royale experience for the IP. Alongside an October release date scheduled, fans also learned that Call of Duty is making its return to Steam. While the latest games has been reorganized to ship through recently, the Valve storefront is to welcome Call of Duty back once more this fall.

Amid the announcements at the time, Activision went on to confirm that the newest Warzone experience being a new client altogether will unfortunately not carry over your progress from the original game.

A wholly new Warzone will launch as an extension of the Modern Warfare II universe. With it comes new technology, new features, and new gameplay that work seamlessly together. Throughout, we have taken a wide range of community feedback to heart. In order to fully deliver this state-of-the-art experience, Warzone 2.0 will feature new Modern Warfare II content and systems with brand-new progression and inventories. Today’s Warzone will continue as a separate experience that will include a continuation of player progression and inventories within that Warzone experience. We can’t wait to share more details soon.

The blog post continues, “Soon after, Development on the all-new, dynamic Warzone 2.0 experience is also being led by Infinity Ward, along with Raven Software. The new, free-to-play battle royale Warzone also features the same technology powering Modern Warfare II, so both titles leverage the Call of Duty engine that first debuted with Modern Warfare (2019), providing the most seamless and advanced Call of Duty experiences ever.”

The announcement comes as a setback for many players as certainly many users spent real-world money towards Call of Duty Warzone. And to only find out the new experience which is a continuation of the original will not feature cross-progression is upsetting to say the least. Cosmetics, weapons, Operators, and more will be unique to each release.

Are you surprised by the discovery for Warzone 2.0?
