With Modern Warfare 3 dropping on November 10, fans are wondering if Warzone 3 is arriving alongside the new multiplayer. Here’s everything you need to know.
While multiplayer fans have a lot to look forward to when Modern Warfare 3 arrives, there’s plenty for Warzone players to get excited about too. The battle royale is receiving the new Urzikstan map, along with a ton of new weapons.
But with so much fresh content, fans are wondering if this next iteration of the BR will be titled Warzone 3, just like Warzone 2 when Modern Warfare 2 launched in 2022.
So, is Warzone 3 on the way? Here’s everything you need to know.
Is Warzone 3 releasing with Modern Warfare 3?
No, Activision haven’t shared any plans to release a Warzone 3 at the moment. Although the game is getting a substantial overhaul when the Modern Warfare 3 update arrives, the game will still be called Warzone as it was before.
Instead, the MW3 update is being treated more like the transition from Modern Warfare (2019) to Black Ops Cold War, where the new game is integrated into Warzone without changing the name. The only difference this time is that a new map is also being added.
Warzone 2 launched alongside Modern Warfare 2 back in 2022, but coinciding with the launch of Season 4 of Modern Warfare 2 and Warzone, Activision decided to drop the number two (originally referred to as “2.0”) from Warzone’s title.
Despite “Warzone 3” being a plausible name that many fans have already taken to calling the upcoming version, Activision themselves have never referred to the game in that way.
There’s no word on whether the devs plan to release a Warzone 3 in the future, but for now, it seems they’re happy to treat the current Warzone as an ongoing platform they can update with each new multiplayer title.
Only time will tell if they choose to go back to the numbering system when Call of Duty 2024, which is thought to be developed by Treyarch, rolls around.
