Infinity Ward has confirmed that they plan to increase the player count support in Call of Duty: Warzone to 200 players, a number that was discussed during leaks for the game prior to it’s launch.
Infinity Ward Studio Head Patrick Kelly told USA TODAY in an interview that they have 200 player working in the studio and are play testing the higher player count.
“We brought a number of twists to battle royale,” Kelly told USA TODAY. “I do think the world you play in is going to be undeniably unique. For one thing, we are initially going to roll out with 150 players, when you are typically seeing 60 to 100. Actually, I can tell you we are already playing with 200 players. We are going to release that a little bit later.”
He said they will add it in a “bit later” but did not provide an actual time frame for when to expect it.
Call of Duty: Warzone launched with support for 150 player lobbies, which is already one of the highest player counts for a battle royale game currently available on the market.

Warzone Season 6 Subway system detailed
Activision has officially provided more information how the new Subway system in Call of Duty: Warzone will work.
The new Subway will be added to Warzone with the start of Season 6. Season 6 is set to begin on Tuesday, Sept. 29.
Here’s a quick overview of accessing the new Metro station:
The platform itself is broken up into two halves, with each side dedicated to a different direction of the subway line. Both sides have a small room, such as an employee break area or equipment closet, that can be accessed via double doors. Nearly every one of these rooms also has a near escape ladder, which leads up to a hole on the surface a few dozen meters from the main subway staircase entrance.
Whether it’s in these rooms, on the platform, or even back at the previously accessible ticket office landing area, there is the potential for items, Supply Boxes, and Contracts to populate these otherwise abandoned subway stations.
Metro System – Stations & Locations:
The new Verdansk Metro Service is fully operational in Season 6 of Warzone. There are the following stops:
- Verdansk International Airport
- Lozoff Pass
- Verdansk Center
- Downtown/Tavorsk District
- Barakett Shopping District
- Verdansk Train Station
- Torsk Bloc
Per the Call of Duty Blog, the subway system will not move if there is any fighting happening on the train itself or on the railways. The blog also states that the subway will not go to station where the circle collapse in taking place already.
Specifically, a subway train will not move to a station that is under the effects of the circle collapse. This avoids a situation of a squad hopping aboard a subway that leads to an untimely death… unless, of course, it’s at the hands of another squad waiting at the next station.
Speaking of fighting, there is no room for roughhousing onboard the Metro. In fact, the subway will not move at all if there is any conflict on board, or between the train and the platform, so keep fighting to the platform, stairwells, and outside the station.
Stay tuned for more information to come as Sept. 29 approaches.

Modern Warfare & Warzone Season 6: Date, Subway, & Operators
Activision and Infinity Ward announced that Season 6 for Modern Warfare and Warzone begins on Tuesday, September 29.
The company released a new cinematic trailer for Season 6, unveiling the new operators coming including Farrah and Nikolai.
The trailer also revealed the new Subway system coming to Warzone, allowing players a new way to traverse the map as they play.
Here’s a look at the Subway system:
The Call of Duty blog has provided more details on what to expect from the two new Operators, who are part of the upcoming Season 6 Battle Pass.
“This occupation must end. That we can all agree on, yes?”
The founder and Commander of the Urzikstani Liberation Force, Farah, grew up a fighter after surviving imprisonment by Roman Barkov. She’s an exceptional soldier and leader that’s known a lifetime of war. Her skills have been further honed with additional training with the SAS, and she’s led dangerous missions to fight off Al-Qatala forces and other regimes stationed in her country.
Following the events of Campaign, Farah joins the Chimera of the Allegiance reuniting with Iskra, a former scout of hers. Farah is instantly unlocked at Tier 0 of the Season Six Battle Pass. In addition to Farah’s base skin, players can earn additional skins and other rewards by completing her Operator Missions.
“Nikolai, you’ve been a bad boy.” “From you that’s a compliment.”
Nikolai is the leader of the Chimera, a PMC within the Allegiance. A long-time friend to Captain Price, Nikolai initially worked with Price, Kamarov, and Kate Laswell to build the Armistice to stop the rise of a new AQ. After the Armisitice collapse, Nikolai now takes the battle in his own hands to stop Zakhaev.
Nikolai is a Russian patriot at heart with a deep love for his country only matched by his love for weaponry. He’s known as a fixer and can acquire most anything, anywhere. Despite his murky background, he’ll always choose what’s right when it counts. Nikolai is unlocked at Tier 100 of the Season Six Battle Pass. Players can complete Operator Missions to earn additional skins for Nikolai and other rewards.
Season 6 will begin on Sept. 29 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. Alongside the new content teased in the trailer, there will also be more to come in MP.
Stay tuned for the latest on Season 6.
