Call of Duty Warzone: Modern Warfare Battle Royale LEAKED in new update?

Warzone game art has reportedly leaked online, alongside others details that have yet to be verified. A new image has been posted that suggests Activision is launching a new Battle Royale experience. This will be called Call of Duty Warzone and appears to be connected to Modern Warfare Season 2. The name Call of Duty Warzone has been shared online but the important piece of information came via the artwork, which looks legitimate.

It also features the character Ghost, who was recently added to Call of Duty Modern Warfare as part of Season 2.

So there’s a chance that this new Call of Duty Warzone is connected to Modern Warfare as a new mode. However, there are also rumours that this new Battle Royale experience will be separate from the latest COD game.

It’s claimed that it will be a free-to-play spin-off available on a number of leading platforms, consoles included. This new artwork doesn’t share any Modern Warfare logos on it, so it doesn’t rule out this rumour.

Other reports suggest that Raven Software is working on this standalone edition of COD Battle Royale. And this would lineup with something Coddy Johnson, President and Chief Operating Officer, said during a recent earnings report.

“So across console, PC, mobile and e-sports, the Call of Duty franchise has never been better positioned for growth and there is more to come, including entirely new experiences within the Modern Warfare universe,” Johnson said.

“And then, of course, in Q4 of this year, a new premium Call of Duty release, which is already generating excitement in our play tests.

“Finally, across the Activision portfolio, we are honoured to see the team is focused on high-quality world-class content recognized by the industry, the 2019 game rewards.”

This shouldn’t be taken as a confirmation that a Battle Royale mode is coming but it certainly doesn’t rule it out.

Activision also teased that Call of Duty fans could expect some “surprises” as part of future Modern Warfare updates. Rob Kostich, Activision’s president, made these comments during the same investors call.

Kostich said there was a "great pipeline of new content" in the works for Modern Warfare and that Activision is in it for "the long haul". Battle Royale wasn't explicitly mentioned, but it could be the "surprise" the Activision bigwig referred to.

Activision also appears to be teasing some kind of big announcement, and it looks like something connected with Battle Royale.

A new intro trailer has been added to the game as part of this week's Modern Warfare Season 2 update. The new footage is available to view after you have downloaded the latest patch and it features Ghost radioing in for help.

It also appears to show an interesting perimeter gaining on Ghost's position, as well as a character confirming that the gas was closing in, which doesn't sound far removed from Battle Royale.

That's not to mention the big map, vehicles and players dropping in via parachutes from planes that suggest a big release is being planned for COD Season 2. Players have also noted that a new fifth option has been added to the MW menu screen, which is currently classified.

Fans will have to wait for more information from Activision who confirmed today that "Throughout the season, additional modes will be available including fan-favourite mode Demolition, pitting two teams against each other with the objective of attacking or destroying bomb sites."

So whether it's standalone or something connected to Modern Warfare Season 2, it looks like something new is being worked on.
