When Call of Duty Warzone 2 was first revealed, we were told its release date would not be until after the release of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, and rumor expected this to be 2023. While this is certainly true, if the latest rumors are anything to go by then we won’t have to wait too much longer: Warzone 2 is expected to be released in November 2022.
When is the Call of Duty: Warzone 2 release date?
Call of Duty: Warzone 2 is rumored to be released on November 16 according to an Activision internal document seen by Charlie Intel. If this release date rumor is true, this means there will be just three weeks between the release of Warzone 2 and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 on October 27. It would certainly put paid to previous rumors that the game would not be released until 2023.
Warzone 2 is expected to be “a massive evolution of Battle Royale with all-new playspace and a new sandbox mode”. It is being designed by Infinity Ward in tandem with Modern Warfare 2 and will be built on new technology. While the game will be released for PS5 and PS4, it will not have any ties to its predecessor; player progress and cosmetics from Call of Duty: Warzone will not be carried over into Warzone 2. Other than more rumored details about the map and the addition of NPCs, few other details are known about the game. Information on the next Warzone is promised for the Call of Duty: Next show on September 15 that will also show off the multiplayer segment of Modern Warfare 2 and the new mobile version of Call of Duty: Warzone.
