Modern Warfare 3 launched on November 10 around the world, and with its first major content set to arrive in December, many in the community are wondering if Warzone 3 will also go live alongside MW3’s Season 1. Here’s all you need to know.

Modern Warfare 3 brought a ton of new content for fans to enjoy, and a majority of Call of Duty players are now leveling up the best MW3 guns before Season 1 drops. Apart from MW3 integrating with Warzone, the battle royale is also set to get the new Urzikstan map.

But following the tricky integrations that the game went through in the past, fans are wondering if this next iteration of the battle royale will be titled Warzone 3, just like Warzone 2 when Modern Warfare 2 launched in 2022.

So, is Warzone 3 on the way? Here’s everything you need to know.

Is Warzone 3 releasing with MW3 Season 1?

No, Activision haven’t shared any plans to release a Warzone 3. However, they’ve confirmed Warzone will get a substantial overhaul with MW3’s Season 1 set to be released on December 6 to include Modern Warfare 3’s content alongside the new Urzikstan map.

MW3 Season 1 will be the transitional update, similar to what happened with previous titles, where the new premium game is integrated into Warzone – without changing the BR’s name.

Warzone 2 launched alongside Modern Warfare 2 back in 2022, but following the launch of Season 4 of Modern Warfare 2, Activision decided to drop the number two (originally referred to as “2.0”) from Warzone’s title.

Despite “Warzone 3” being a plausible name that many fans have already taken to calling the upcoming version, Activision themselves have never referred to the game in that way.

There’s no word on whether the devs plan to release a Warzone 3 in the future, but for now, it seems they’re happy to treat the current Warzone as an ongoing platform they can update with each new multiplayer title.

Only time will tell if they choose to go back to the numbering system when Call of Duty 2024, which is reportedly being developed by Treyarch, releases.
