Tuesday, February 11th saw Season 2 of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare officially kick-off. A new in-game cinematic treated players who booted up their game following the completion of the Season 2 update and has provided what the majority of the community believes to be teasers for an upcoming Battle Royale game mode.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Battle Royale
This Season 2 cinematic introduces players to Ghost, who is investigating some odd activity in Verdansk where military forces are turning on each other, and gas is closing in on all sides. Ghost then proceeds to ask Captain price to send in some soldiers that he can trust. The Season 2 cinematic then concludes with a short clip of multiple characters jumping out of a plane and parachuting to the ground.
It did not take long for the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare community to come together and begin to theorize that this Season 2 cinematic was providing a plethora of teasers for a Battle Royale game mode. Soldiers are turning on each other in an every person for themselves manner, gas closing in from all sides, and the need for squadmates all sound strongly like the makings of what is needed for a Battle Royale game mode.
These teasers were also accompanied by the addition of a new option on the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare main menu that is currently “Classified” and is not presently accessible. This main menu allows players to access the game’s campaign, multiplayer, and Co-op modes. It would not be too far fetched to think that this Classified option will eventually be revealed to be the Battle Royale option for the main menu of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare.
Now, no official word regarding a Battle Royale game mode for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare has come from Infinity Ward or Activision. However, these teasers from the Season 2 cinematic and the new Classified menu option are the most significant hints the community has gotten towards confirmation and have no doubt injected plenty of excitement into the playerbase.
