Will Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Have Battle Royale?

by Liana Ruppert

Battle Royale is everywhere it seems and even though it looks like the hype has begun to finally die down, the upcoming Call of Duty reimagining is looking to offer a lot of familiar experiences in addition to new ones altogether. With Call of Duty: Black Ops 4’s battle royale mode being such a smashing success, rumors swirling around their upcoming game were to be expected. Unfortunately, a recent response from the devs about Call of Duty: Modern Warfare battle royale has left us with even more questions. 

The speculation heated up with one fan took to Twitter to ask one dev “[Could you] confirm that the Battle Royale mode will not be present on MW?” When in doubt, go with a The Office GIF, and that’s exactly what Joe Emslie did in this case: 

Even though Infinity Ward is making this game and not Treyarch, it wouldn’t be surprising at all to see them include the popular PvP mode in Modern Warfare. It was a huge hit with their core players with Blackout and the hype surrounding a more modern take on Modern Warfare continues to skyrocket. 

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is much more than a simple relaunch. The studio behind the shooter is revamping much of what we know about online play, including free maps and no season pass, in addition to the ability to crossplay between PC and consoles. 

“This is an all-new Modern Warfare reimagined in every way,” said Dave Stohl, co-Studio Head, Infinity Ward. “We are creating an emotionally charged experience that’s inspired by the headlines in the world today, where the rules are grey and battle lines are blurred. Players will join a varied cast of international special forces and freedom fighters in gripping and heart-pounding missions through iconic European cities and volatile expanses of the Middle East. It’s intense, it’s exciting, and we can’t wait for our fans to play this October.”

“Every design decision has been made with our players in mind,” said Patrick Kelly, Creative Director and co-Studio Head, Infinity Ward. “With the launch of Modern Warfare, we’re taking steps to unite the community. First, we plan for Modern Warfare to be played together across PC and console through cross-play support. Second, we’re eliminating the traditional season pass, so that we can deliver more free maps and content as well as post-launch events to all players. This is just the beginning — there’s much more to come.”

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare makes its grand debut on October 25th for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.
