Call of Duty: Warzone is reportedly still getting new content after the release of Warzone 2.0. The original free-to-play battle royale game from Activision would also be given a new name, namely ‘Warzone Caldera’.
From November 28, Warzone according to game journalist and leaker Tom Henderson be renamed Warzone Caldera. Presumably this is also the date on which Warzone 2.0 will be released. So far, Activision has only announced that the upcoming battle royale game would be released sometime after Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II, sometime after its October 28 release. It is unknown whether Warzone 2.0 will eventually be called simply ‘Warzone’ due to the name change from the original.
The new title refers to the battle royale map of the same name that was introduced at the end of 2021 in conjunction with the release of Call of Duty: Vanguard. This became the replacement for the original map, Verdansk. Incidentally, the first Warzone map seems to be making a comeback in Warzone Mobile, according to a new teaser of the game.
Henderson also writes, “It looks like the original Warzone will continue to receive updates and DLC.” If this is true, then updates will be released for both the original and the sequel, and players will even be able to purchase new content for the first Warzone. So far it has been clear that the original game ‘will continue to exist independently including the progress made and [in-game items] of players’. Games will not be able to carry their stats and items into the sequel as a new progression system is introduced.
In any case, improvements to existing systems are planned for Call of Duty: Warzone this year, Infinity Ward previously announced. The developer called the game “embarrassing” and admitted to “ruining” the game.
