Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare Battle Royale Reportedly Due In 2020

The long-rumoured Call of Duty: Modern Warfare battle royale mode is reportedly going to be released for free in early 2020, according to YouTuber LongSensation. We’ve already heard murmurs about a battle royale mode for this year’s Call of Duty game, although Infinity Ward earlier this week indicated it wouldn’t be happening.

Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare Battle Royale Coming 2020

LongSensation has a decent track record when it comes to leaking Call of Duty-related info, although keep in mind that nothing official has been confirmed at this point. Still, for the record, here’s what the YouTuber had to say on the matter:

So apparently Battle Royale in #ModernWarfare will be a free mode to release in early 2020. It will be downloadable as a separate game, but also will still be connected to the core game. If this is true then it’s a very good move by Activision.

Likely the intro will be “INFINITY WARD” “RAVEN SOFTWARE” “ACTIVISION” then a loading screen taking you to the main menu for BR. (Meant 2020, not 2021) 😀

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is slated for release on PlayStation 4, PC, and Xbox One on October 25. Last year’s Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 was the first game in the series to implemented a battle royale mode, although it came at the expense of a traditional single-player campaign.

Having said that, Black Ops 4 is still a great shooter and we recommend checking it out if you haven’t already done so.

Modern Warfare is a full reboot of the popular sub-series, and includes cross-platform play — another first for the franchise — and eschews the traditional Season Pass model in favour of free post-launch content drops.

Infinity Ward recently announced that the game will include dedicated servers, and the PS4 version will also include mouse & keyboard support. Captain Price is also back, but he’s now voiced by Barry Sloane instead of Billy Murray.

    good to hear it will be a separate download, and we dont need to bother with it at all if we dont want this exploitative microtransaction fueled battle royale crap. now we can save the hd space for other games.
