According to a new rumor from gaming website VGC News, they are indicating that “development sources” have informed them that Call of Duty: Warzone is set to release in early March.
Per their article, Warzone is set to be released around Tuesday, March 10. This information and date is not confirmed at the time of this writing.
VGC states their sources tell them that Warzone has been a co-developed project between Infinity Ward and Raven Software, which lines up with many information around the web over the last few months and information that has been mentioned to CharlieIntel.
The report notes that the mode will be unlocked for Modern Warfare owners on the launch day in early March. Per VGC, the company will also then release a free to play standalone version of Warzone with the option to upgrade to the full Modern Warfare experience.
This information is not officially confirmed by Activision at this time. The company has not even acknowledged Warzone as a mode yet, with many information on the mode coming out via leaks and information through data mining of the game’s files.
VGC states that Warzone will support up to 200 players, which matches what we’ve seen too from in-game files.
Update: Industry insider Daniel Ahmad has retweeted VGC’s tweet of the Warzone release happening in early March. Ahmad is well connected in the gaming industry and has accurately leaked information on the gaming industry, including Call of Duty info in the past.
