Call of Duty: Warzone Confirmed to Shut Down Later

Time to move on to Warzone 2.0.

Activision has recently announced that Activision is now pulling the plug on the original Call of Duty: Warzone later this year.

Call of Duty: Warzone launched together with Call of Duty: Modern Warfare in 202 and became one of the most popular battle royale games in the market. It offered players the Call of Duty experience but with battle royale mechanics and more, which appealed to a lot of players. It was buggy at first but over time, it grew with tons of new content and was also renamed to Warzone Caldera after the arrival of its successor, Warzone 2.0 last November 2022.

Call of Duty: Warzone Ends Support

Warzone Caldera has remained playable for several months since the launch of Warzone 2.0. Players continued to use real money for skins and weapons. Unfortunately, Activision has decided to pull the plug and warned its users that all progression, inventories, and online services will expire later in September 2023.

Focus on Newer Call of Duty Titles

The reason for ending support for Warzone Caldera is to make its teams focus more on future Call of Duty content, including the current Warzone free-to-play-experience. This meant that the team handling Warzone Caldera will now focus more on Warzone 2.0 and create new content there.

Purchased Content Still Usable

A new announcement on the Call of Duty website states, “Regarding purchased content in Warzone Caldera from Modern Warfare (2019), Black Ops Cold War, or Vanguard – that will continue to be accessible in those specific games.”

Call of Duty: Warzone is currently available on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.
