Infinity Ward dev says ‘no comment’ to unconfirmed rumors of Battle Royale mode being in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare

A new rumor has popped up on the internet this past week of a possible addition of a Battle Royale mode in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare.

The rumor comes from YouTuber TheGamingRevolution who claims to know a person that has the information on what Infinity Ward is working on for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and claims that there is in fact a Battle Royale mode in development for the new title this year.

The video post to his channel, viewable here, states that a “source” tells him the Battle Royale mode is currently in development with 152 players and a map that is 3x the size of Black Ops 4’s Blackout. He also states that Infinity Ward is reportedly targeting 200 players for the mode.

We want to caution right out that this information is not confirmed by any means from anyone at Activision or Infinity Ward. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare has been announced to include Campaign, Multiplayer, and Co-Op mode only. Back in May, when we were at Infinity Ward, the studio declined to comment on the addition of such mode in this game.

In addition, information that CharlieINTEL last heard was that there was no Battle Royale mode in active development for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare. TheGamingRevolution’s source claims that the mode was sent into development recently to be in the game.

A fan asked Infinity Ward’s Art Director, Joel Emslie, about this rumor and he replied with a GIF that says ‘No Comment.’

There’s no acknowledgment that this is real at all, but we will update as we get more information.
