A leak from a known source on Warzone 2 has been backed up by fellow leaker Tom Henderson, with Henderson himself stating that “I’m not going to beat around the bush, but a lot of this is true.”
Warzone 2 Moving Away From Traditional Warzone
The video above discusses several important talking points, with the main ones being that:
- The game will be closer to Call Of Duty: Blackout than your traditional Warzone
- Loadouts will be locked behind missions and objectives that will seem much closer to traditional Call Of Duty.
- You’ll be tasked with managing your inventory, much more than in the original Warzone.
The leaker also mentions that a map from previous Call Of Duty games will return in addition to the return of beloved map Verdansk. It’s unclear as of right now when the game itself will actually release, what systems it will be released on in the wake of the Microsoft Activision purchase, or when we’ll hear more official details on it however.
A New Experience
What we do know is that Infinity Ward confirmed earlier this year that a “new Warzone experience” is coming and that it is being built from the ground-up to be something new and special. It’ll be in a new engine, introducing a sandbox mode and claiming to be a “massive evolution of battle royale”. It’s a fair bet that we might hear more information on the game at either Summer Game Fest 2022 or Gamescom 2022 on the game, with gameplay and a potential release date.
Previously Henderson claimed that he’s heard the game was originally scheduled to be released in Holiday 2022, but was internally delayed due to various other factors. 2023 is therefore the next best bet, especially seeing as there’ll reportedly not be a mainline Call Of Duty release next year at all.
