Call of Duty Devs Admit to Breaking Warzone, Vows to Fix Sequel

Activision confirmed what we’ve known for a while now: Infinity Ward is developing a sequel to Modern Warfare as well as a new Warzone experience. In a call with influencers, Activision confirmed that fixing Warzone is a top priority for the team after taking the blame for ruining it.

“We f**ked stuff up,” Infinity Ward co-studio head Pat Kelly admitted plainly per Charlie Intel. Game director Josh Bridge added that the team is “not happy” with the current state of Warzone and that the studio is “determined to fix the issues with the game.”

Ranking Every Call of Duty Single-Player Campaign

Warzone, a free-to-play Call of Duty battle royale was released as part of the rollout for 2019’s Modern Warfare and it became a huge hit.

However, recent updates for Warzone have drawn more criticism than praise after several performance issues and bugs were introduced over time. The rollout of season two for Warzone Pacific has been delayed to add additional fixes before launch.

All of this is to say that Warzone’s stability has declined over time and Infinity Ward is looking to right the ship with its new Warzone experience.

Infinity Ward is leading development on both the new Warzone and mainline Call of Duty game, which is a sequel to 2019’s Modern Warfare. A new engine will be used for both titles.

While the future of Call of Duty was put into question after it was announced Microsoft plans to acquire Activision Blizzard, the company announced that Call of Duty will remain multiplatform and available on PlayStation “beyond existing agreements.”

Elsewhere, fans are excited for a sequel to Modern Warfare as the 2019 entry was critically acclaimed upon launch. You can read IGN’s Call of Duty: Modern Warfare review here.
