Some fans have pondered what will happen to the original Warzone because Warzone 2 will likely receive additional information as part of the upcoming Call of Duty Next. On November 28, the game will change its name, according to reporter Tom Henderson, who adds that "it looks like the original Warzone will continue to receive updates\/DLC." \n \nBased on the new moniker, it appears that the original Warzone will mainly concentrate on the Pacific-set Caldera map, which was released in November 2021 as part of "Warzone Pacific," a bundle that Activision Blizzard released with Call of Duty: Vanguard Season 1. Infinity Ward's most recent installment of the game, Modern Warfare, which debuted in 2019, was significantly featured in the original Warzone, which debuted five months after. Many features, vehicles, and weapons from Modern Warfare 2 will be present in Warzone 2, which will debut following that game's October 25 release. \n \nThe coexistence of Warzone and Warzone 2 is by what Activision has previously stated regarding the two battle royale games, notably that Warzone will "go on as a standalone experience that will involve a continuance of player progression and inventories within that Warzone experience." This indicates that skins, weapons, and unlocks from the first Warzone will not transfer to Warzone 2. \n \nAccording to a new alleged leak, Warzone 2 will be released on November 16. The release of Warzone 2 and a possible rebranding of the first Warzone could seem to coincide. However, the rumored release date and the November 28 renaming date don't match. Whatever you want to do with that. \n \nAll players, regardless of platform, will be able to access the open beta of Modern Warfare 2 starting on September 24. Additionally, the beta for Modern Warfare 2 will commence on September 16 for those who preorder on PlayStation. \n \nWhile the Call of Duty Next event is scheduled for September 15, no official sources have confirmed the news. As Activision stated, the information could explain why Warzone's progress did not carry over to Warzone 2.
