Infinity Ward have today released a brand new patch for Call of Duty Modern Warfare and Warzone. The patch adds private matches to Warzone with three available modes among other things.

Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War may be in the focus at the moment but this does not mean Modern Warfare and Warzone are not Activision's plans anymore. Quite the contrary, 

A new update has been released for Call of Duty Modern Warfare and Warzone on all platforms and it's a pretty big one - around 33 GB on PlayStation 4. The biggest focus of this update is to reduce the overall size of the game on all platforms by 25 GB, which is not much but still, it's better than nothing. 

Infinity Ward explained that the update will separate out high-resolution textures into asset packs and bring support for next-gen consoles - Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5. 

Additionally, those who have a lot and we mean a lot of friends will be happy to hear that Warzone now offers private matches. The feature is currently in a beta version and requires various player counts to start the match. There are three modes available at the moment:

  • BR – 50 players required to start (also has squad variations)
  • Plunder – 30 players required to start (also has squad variations)
  • Mini BR – 24 players required
