Infinity Ward’s Studio Heads have confirmed they have ‘long-term’ plans for Call of Duty: Warzone that extends for years, including Season 6 already.
In a statement that comes as a surprise to absolutely no one, Activision has confirmed that Warzone isn’t going away anytime soon. CoD’s take on battle royale continues to gather steam as we barrel towards the game’s potentially map-altering Season 2 nuke event.
Not only do we have copious amounts of details regarding Warzone’s impending Third Season, but it turns out that Warzone’s future for the next years is already being mapped out.
Infinity Ward’s co-studio heads, Patrick Kelly and Dave Stohl, spoke with the Washington Post this week as Warzone passed a new milestone: 100 million players.
In the interview, Kelly confirmed that Infinity Ward’s team is still involved with Call of Duty: Warzone’s high-level development and story progression.
He mentions that he & Stohl are currently finalizing the details for Season 6 of Warzone & Cold War, which will launch later this year.
Kelly confirmed that they have “broad stroke” plans for Call of Duty: Warzone for several years. Following the launch of Black Ops Cold War in 2020, Infinity Ward handed off a lot of the work of Warzone to Raven Software. Raven’s designers had worked with Infinity Ward since the start of Warzone’s development, but late last year, Raven took over public-facing communications of Warzone as well.
The Washington Post reports as part of their interview that “while Infinity Ward has for the moment handed off most of the “Warzone” maintenance work to Raven Software — designers from which, Stohl noted, worked with Infinity Ward from the outset of “Warzone’s” development and not just after the integration of “Black Ops Cold War” — Kelly and Stohl are currently working on the details for Season 6, which will begin in late 2021.
In the interview, Kelly also told them that the studio has “planned out Warzone’s broad strokes for several years into the future.”
Kelly stated that some of the things they are working on in Warzone takes “more time” and requires advance planning. He says that the team is working hard to “top” what they’ve done before in the Warzone world.
“Some things we want to do mode wise, geo wise, they take more time,” Kelly said. “So they naturally need to slot in later. But we do think about this on a multi-year basis. And I will tell you this: We’re doing our damnedest right now, to top [what’s come before].”
Activision executives confirmed that Call of Duty: Warzone will remain “front and center” in the Call of Duty universe for “years to come.”
