According to an interview by GamerGen, ‘Call of Duty: Warzone’ will be coming to both new PlayStation and Xbox consoles respectively.
Warzone, which has taken the gaming world by storm, has recently become one of the most well-known Battle Royale titles.
The free-to-play Battle Royale has attracted attention from all over the globe and has taken a lot of the spotlight off Fortnite, the previously most hyped title the world has ever seen.
In an interview with GamerGen, Infinity Ward’s narrative director Taylor Kurosaki spoke about plans for Warzone moving directly to PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X.
He said: “I know that our plan is Warzone is going to be around for quite some time, so as soon as those new systems are out and available, I’m sure we’ll support them.”
Looking at the success the game has had, and the amount of hype it has been able to generate, it is no surprise that the studio’s plans are to move the game directly to the new consoles.
Despite Warzone quickly taking over the world of Battle Royale gameplay, ‘Call of Duty’ have had a battle to get there, with their first Battle Royale game mode Blackout largely disappointing.
After all of the hype and build up around a new Battle Royale mode that could challenge Fortnite and possibly take the crown, it was considered a let-down by critics and players alike.
As a result of Blackout being such an anti-climax, fans were sceptical as to whether ‘Call of Duty’ developers were able to produce a decent Battle Royale game.
Fans and critics alike were soon shut up by Warzone, as it swept through nations and quickly became one of the most played Battle Royale games ever.
Although the near future of the game is looking bright, the longevity is there to be questioned.
Consistent and relevant updates keep games in the genre alive using Fortnite and Epic Games as an example.
If Infinity Ward stays devoted to Warzone while new stand-alone titles come out around it, the game is sure to carry on with its success.
According to recent leaks on various social medias, there is a new map that is on the horizon for Warzone, surely drawing the attention of more players.
