In an interview with website USGamer, Infinity Ward’s Joe Cecot and Geoff Smith, alongside Raven’s Amos Hodge, spoke about Call of Duty: Warzone and it’s success and plans for the future.
As part of the interview, US Gamer brought up to the developers again how they plan to integrate Call of Duty: Warzone, a free to play title, into the yearly premium releases and navigate those conversations.
In the interview, the developers say they want this game to last longer than the usual one year cycle and plan to support it with features and updates as long as it remains popular.
“That’s the plan,” says Hodge when I ask about the hopefully-longer-than-usual lifespan for Warzone.
Infinity Ward’s Joe Cecot says in the interview that the studio plans to support this game as long as the players are there and will ‘figure out’ as they go how to weave this into the yearly releases.
“As long as it’s popular, we’re going to keep updating it,” adds Cecot. “We’re gonna keep pushing it and figuring out how it fits in the future.”
Infinity Ward’s Taylor Kurosaki, in an interview a few weeks back, said that the game will be a ‘constant’ in the Call of Duty world and ‘interconnect’ different sub-franchises together.
