Ranking Each Call of Duty Single-Player Campaign

Warzone, a free-to-play Call of Duty battle royale was released as part of the rollout for 2019’s Modern Warfare and it became a huge hit.

Recent Warzone updates have received more criticism than praise, due to a number of performance and bug issues. Warzone Pacific's second season has been delayed in order add more fixes to the launch.

All of this is to say that Warzone’s stability has declined over time and Infinity Ward is looking to right the ship with its new Warzone experience.

Infinity Ward is leading development on both the new Warzone and mainline Call of Duty game, which is a sequel to 2019’s Modern Warfare. Both titles will benefit from a new engine.
