Even though it may not be a surprise to most who followed Activision Blizzard's leaky train, the company now officially announced it. As expected, it launches tomorrow, Tuesday, 10 March 2020, and is a free-to-play battle royale title.

So, just as rumoured, as well as indicated in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare's freshly installed countdown timer , Call of Duty: Warzone launches tomorrow, with a slight twist depending on whether you own the former. 

Namely, Modern Warfare owners are getting the game at exactly 8am PT / 11am ET, which in Europe means the day before and 3pm GMT, after which it will appear in the menus. This will require a 15-22GB download, which means they've significantly less to download than the anxiously waiting freeloader crowds. 

In fact, if you don't own Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, you'll have to wait a bit longer. Well, if you're a fan this probably qualifies as more than a bit. Instead of the earlier schedule, we're looking at - 12am PDT / 11am ET, or in Europe 6am GMT on 10 March 2020.

And not only that, not owning Modern Warfare earns you the extra-large download, as the free-to-play version weighs in at 80-100GB. 

Call of Duty: Warzone comes with two modes, Plunder and Battle Royale, and supports up to 150 players on a huge map. It's been said that it features Solos, Duos and Trios, although the trailer doesn't say anything about that. 

We've already seen some Call of Duty: Warzone action in the leak that somehow survived Activision Blizzard's thumb, and it looks pretty cool. Unfortunately, if you were hoping to team up with some buddies, your unlock times will depend on whether you own Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, but not by a lot.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is a reboot of the original series
