Activision have officially confirmed that Call of Duty: Warzone will remain on the current, Modern Warfare engine after the integration with Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War later this year.
Call of Duty Warzone will not switch engines for Black Ops Cold War. The information has been confirmed by the publisher yesterday via ResetEra post , where Activision’s Art Lead said there will be no engine change for Warzone.
This does not come as a surprise since it would be a massive feat to change such a core feature of one game. However, some Call of Duty fans have been speculating just how exactly will the merge with Black Ops Cold War affect the gameplay in Warzone.
Now that Activision confirmed there won't be any changes to Call of Duty Warzone, it will be interesting to see how players adapt to two different engines, especially those who regularly play both standard multiplayer and Warzone.
As you may know, Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War lacks several important features that we get used to in Modern Warfare and Warzone. One of them is weapon mounting, a useful feature that many players use in Modern Warfare and Warzone. Now that Black Ops Cold War won't support weapon mounting, it remains to be seen whether Treyarch and Activision scrap it from Warzone or come up with a different solution.
Hopefully, we'll hear more details about Call of Duty Warzone and Black Ops Cold War merge in the upcoming weeks.
Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War is officially hitting the shelves on November 13, 2020.
