As Modern Warfare 2’s lifecycle nears its conclusion and the release of Modern Warfare 3 draws closer, many players are wondering if the upcoming game will introduce Warzone 3 and deliver seamless integration between both games, as seen in previous titles.

From the release of Modern Warfare 2019 through to the latest installment, Modern Warfare 2, Call of Duty: Warzone has evolved by incorporating a lot of content from premium titles on an annual basis through integration.

Following Warzone 2’s debut in November 2022, players expect regular updates for the free-to-play title, including new content and a title change to align with the yearly franchise release. This has led many to question whether there will be a Warzone 3.

Although Warzone 2 officially renamed itself alongside Modern Warfare 2 at its launch, earlier in June of this year, coinciding with the launch of Season 4 of Modern Warfare 2 and Warzone, Activision decided to drop the number two (originally referred to as “2.0”) from Warzone’s title.

In addition to this modification, the original iteration of Warzone also underwent a name change to “Warzone Caldera,” and has been officially confirmed to be shuttered this month, on September 21.

Despite “Warzone 3” being a plausible name in line with Modern Warfare 3, the permanent closure of the original game and recent name changes suggest that the next version coming alongside MW3 might not feature a numerical designation, and instead, retain its current name.

Keep in mind that Activision haven’t announced any details about the next chapter of the popular free-to-play title, but we will be sure to update this piece if they release any new information.
