We know that this year the popular Call of Duty Warzone game is migrating over to a new client. Not only does Activision plan on releasing a so-called “Call of Duty: Warzone 2” game by the end of the year but this new release aims to replace the current game. In fact, players will also have to start out fresh in Warzone 2 as no progression is carried over to the new client. So when is this all going to happen? According to a newly leaked document from Activision, Warzone 2 will release on 16 November.
The document which was sourced online from a reliable source is actually an internal memo sent out to Activision staff to prepare them for the upcoming months ahead. Not only does the memo detail other games including Overwatch 2 and World of Warcraft, but the document lists what is happening in specific games on what dates.
The documents claim that on 27 October, Activision will release Call of Duty Cortez. This is the internal name for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 which is set to launch in early access on 27 October with the official release date being 28 October. Prior to that, Activision will also roll out World of Warcraft patch 10 and the Overwatch 2 PvP early access game. However, the big news here is Call of Duty: Warzone 2 which is set to launch on 16 November.
The document lists Warzone 2’s launch as “global” so you can expect the game to release across all platforms on the day. Keep in mind that Activision will still share a lot more information about Warzone 2 leading up to the launch on 16 November. At the moment, the focus is Modern Warfare 2.
