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.
