Leaks Confirmed – Call of Duty: Warzone Officially Launches Tomorrow

At long last, Activision has officially announced Call of Duty: Warzone with its first trailer, and in so doing confirmed what several leaks had claimed; the game will be releasing tomorrow, just one day after the announcement. Warzone, which is the battle royale mode for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, will also be available as a standalone, free-to-play game of its own.

Call of Duty: Warzone Launches on the 10th of March

The new trailer is the first official confirmation from Activision that Call of Duty: Warzone is actually real. Although most fans will have already heard of the upcoming game, that is because it has been plagued by leaks for months. Details about the game modes, in-game video of the map, the official title and cover art, the release date; all were revealed by leaks ahead of today’s trailer announcement. (To Activision’s great irritation, no doubt.)

Like Battlefield 5 before it, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is getting its battle royale mode post-launch. However, Activision is going one step further in this case by making Warzone totally free to play. You don’t already need to own Modern Warfare in order to play Warzone. Lleaks have indicated, however, that Warzone will feature an in-game way to buy the rest of Modern Warfare directly. If true (and it seems quite likely), Activision is likely hoping that a portion of their new audience will be lured into purchasing the full game after experiencing Warzone.

Call of Duty Warzone Launches Tomorrow Announcement Trailer

Call of Duty: Warzone launches tomorrow on all platforms. If you already own Modern Warfare, you’ll be able to download it earlier than the general public, from 08:00 AM PDT. If you don’t already own Modern Warfare, Warzone will be free to download at 12:00 PM PDT instead, four hours later. Given that a lot of people are likely to be downloading Warzone as soon as they can, Modern Warfare owners should definitely take advantage of the earlier time. In either case, players should expect networks to slow down as thousands of people try to download the game all at once!
