Activision have big plans for their free to play battle royale Call of Duty: Warzone. These include support for up to 200 players and potentially, four and five-player squads.

Call of Duty: Warzone has been played by more than 6 million players since launch and it's safe to say that the majority of players are enjoying the game. However, some disagree with Activision's decision to only include Trios mode at launch, but the publisher state that they did not want to split players into different matchmaking pools right from the get-go.

It is a fair argument but still, players would love to see Solos, Duos and bigger Squads since Warzone's map is one of the biggest maps ever in battle royale games,

Fortunately, Activision have a lot of content updates planned for the near future and these modes could be coming pretty soon. Speaking to USA Today , Patrick Kelly, co-studio head confirmed that Warzone is already running 200-player matches internally, with plans to support this number of players in the live game.

"I can tell you we are already playing with 200 players. We are going to release that a little bit later,"  Kelly said.

On top of this, squads could also get expanded pretty soon. When asked about players' requests for bigger Squads, Kelly said that the developers are already playing with four and five-player squads but wanted to launch with something they know works well and has been tested before. 

Additionally, Squads up to nine players have been tested internally, but we doubt Activision will decide that this is the way to go for Warzone. Four and five-player squads definitely make more sense at the moment.
