Since its launch in early December 2021, both Call of Duty: Vanguard and Warzone Pacific Season 1 has been filled with issues. Many players are hoping for a refreshed battle royale experience in the Call of Duty universe, and recently, famous content creator Dr Disrespect said that not even Microsoft can save Warzone, referring to Microsoft's acquisition of Activision Blizzard. So what's the answer to all the issues the developers are facing with the battle royale? Probably Call of Duty: Warzone 2 right?

Recent rumours have started to surface about the possibility of Warzone 2, and what this new battle royale experience could be.

According to Bloomberg’s Jason Schreier in a report about the next Call of Duty titles coming to PlayStation despite Microsoft's purchase of Activision Blizzard, there's a very interesting tidbit of information.

In the report, Jason Schreier mentions that four people with knowledge of the deal spoke anonymously, mentioning this year's Call of Duty (a new Modern Warfare) as well as this little gem: "The deal also includes a planned new iteration of Call of Duty Warzone, the lucrative free-to-play game that was released in 2020."

Interestingly, industry insider Tom Henderson recently took to Twitter to specifically mention Warzone 2.

The insider states: "Warzone 2 is literally that... Warzone 2. Current gen and PC only... No past weapon integrations etc.  A completely new game for the better hardware."

No additional information is available at this time but with all the current issues, a completely new experience in the form of Warzone 2 does make a bit of sense.

This means that we could see Warzone 2 drop the Xbox One and PS4 series of consoles entirely. It is, however, expected to release in 2023 at the earliest, so that more gamers can actually own a next-gen console, with stock remaining stretched at this time.

Please remember to take information such as this with a large helping of salt until such time as Activision officially reveals details about Call of Duty: Warzone 2.
