There’s not long left until the release of the next Call of Duty game, CoD: Modern Warfare and with the countdown officially on the leaks are coming thick and fast.
As with all leaks, take this info with a pinch of salt, although it comes from a fairly reliable source who’s correctly predicted CoD: MW leaks in the past.
TheGamingRevolution, a known Call of Duty leaker on Twitter, has supposedly revealed some new information on the game’s post-launch plan, including details on Modern Warfare’s battle royale mode.
Taking to social media, TheGamingRevolution claims that a battle royale is developer Infinity Ward’s main priority at the moment as Modern Warfare has gone gold.
He adds that battle royale won’t be coming until around the end of January 2020, and that it’ll be free to play. Again, there’s no official word from Activision on these rumours, so don’t take them as the gospel truth.
Interestingly, TheGamingRevolution also tweeted that we can expect a “big change” to the Call of Duty formula, specifically regarding Battles Pass.
He tweeted: “The Battlepass is only available for Battle Royale in Modern Warfare. Once Battle Royale releases, those items will be available in supply drops, but not until then.
“The Battle Pass may come to multiplayer too but it’s not at the moment.”
Whether or not the game should include a battle royale mode is a controversial one for fans of the series. While some people feel it’s necessary to include, others feel the genre is too well-done at this point.
Livestreamer Shroud recently weighed in on the debate following the beta testing for the game’s multiplayer, stating [via Dexerto]: “Straight up, this game needs a BR — and I don’t know if they’re doing one…
“These game modes [6v6] only last for so long; FPS needs BR nowadays.”
Shroud also went on to add that Modern Warfare is shaping up to be “very unique in comparison to other CoDs.”
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare launches October 25th 2019 on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC.
