Warzone will ‘evolve’ and be ‘tied’ to other Call of Duty games

Infinity Ward’s Design Director recently spoke with GamesRadar ahead of the Season 5 launch.

In the interview, Geoff Smith confirmed that Warzone was ‘built to be a standalone game’ and that it will ‘evolve’ and become ‘tied’ to other Call of Duty games as they release in the future.

“Although Warzone is very closely tied to Modern Warfare, it was designed from the beginning as its own game,” says Smith. “As the game continues to be updated over time, it will evolve and become tied to other games in the Call of Duty universe.”

This is the first time an Infinity Ward or Activision representative has said that Warzone will be ‘tied’ to other games in the Call of Duty universe. In the past, the company has just said it would evolve and connect games in this universe.

Rumors about the 2020 Call of Duty game, which is set to be called Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, and how it ties to Warzone have surfaced over the past few months. One rumor suggests there will be a new Warzone map based around the 2020 game added during the 2020 game’s launch.

Activision has still not revealed details on the 2020 game or how they plan to integrate Warzone into it at this time.

Smith re-affirms that they’ve always wanted to continuously update Warzone and bring new ways for fans to play. He says it was the goal from the beginning to do so.

“It’s extremely important to us that the game continues to evolve,” affirms Smith, “From the beginning, we’ve strived to continuously bring new and different ways for fans to play and continue having fun in both Modern Warfare and Warzone.”

As always, stay tuned for the latest news.
