The first Warzone game will be taken down temporarily following the launch of the sequel later this week. However, it’ll return soon, following a brief period of playtime on the sequel. 

Warzone will be taken down at 11 am EST as Call of Duty gears up for the launch of the sequel at 2 pm EST. Players are encouraged to try out the sequel as it’s free and gives fans a look into new systems, updates, and much more the sequel boasts. On Nov. 28, the first Warzone game will return, although a bit different than how it left the rotation.

On Nov. 28, at 1 pm EST, Warzone will relaunch as Call of Duty: Warzone Caldera. In this relaunched version of the battle royale, players can only play Caldera and can only use the weapons they’ve used from the previous Call of Duty games. Nothing from Modern Warfare 2 will come to the older version of Warzone, as the sequel will be the supported version of the battle royale moving forward.

I love almost every type of video game, and when I'm not playing them, I'm writing about them... a lot. I have too many favorites to list so feel free to ask about them! Long live Ugly Sonic and the Resident Evil 3 Remake (this is a meme btw).
