Activision has very high expectations for Call of Duty: Warzone 2.
The publisher said in its first quarter financial results that the sequel to its 2020 Battle Royale will feature “groundbreaking innovations” that will be revealed later this year.
“Development on this year’s premium and Warzone experiences, led by Infinity Ward, is proceeding very
well,” Activision said. “The new free-to-play Warzone experience, which is built from the ground-up alongside the premium game, features groundbreaking innovations to be revealed later this year.”

The report didn’t indicate a release date for Warzone 2 but at least said that fans will hear more about it relatively soon.
Activision announced the sequel in February, saying it would be built in a new engine and feature an “all-new playspace and a new sandbox mode”.
Developer Infinity Ward’s co-studio head Pat Kelly admitted that it “f**ked stuff up” in the original Warzone as the team is “not happy” and “determined to fix the issues with the game”. Fans had criticized its overall stability and lack of content, especially given the install sizes that Infinity Ward itself admitted were “f**king crazy”.
Warzone was refreshed with its Season Two Reloaded update, and Infinity Ward certainly tries to keep things interesting with its various events. These include the additions of Godzilla and King Kong plus colossi from both the anime and rap worlds with Attack on Titan and Snoop Dogg DLC.
