What you need to know

  • Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is an incredibly popular first-person shooter from Activision.
  • Images of a mode called "Warzone" are floating around.
  • This appears to be the game's long-awaited battle royale mode.
  • Call of Duty: Modern Warfare costs $60 on Amazon (opens in new tab).

It's no secret that Infinity Ward has been developing a battle royale mode for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare. However, it looks like it's called "Warzone." According to a report by MSPoweruser, "players of the newly-updated version of Modern Warfare have been able to glitch their way through the recently added Classified menu. The Warzone menu itself allows players to do numerous activities when the mode goes live. Players will be able to run a training course, host a squad for teams, and matchmake into a random squad... Warzone was also recently leaked through an accidentally released promotional image which was promptly deleted."

Unless Warzone is a completely new experience, all of this points to it being a battle royale mode. However, as with any such leak, take it with a grain of salt. For all we know, it could be red herring designed to throw us off course. Now that the cat is out of the bag, so to speak, let's hope that Activision officially announces the mode and gives us a concrete release date. There are rumors floating around that it's coming on March 3.
