The news was revealed by Activision’s Chief Revenue Officer for eSports
Activision’s Call of Duty: Warzone is being prepped to recieve all new content which has “never been done before,” after the zombie event rolled out recently. Apparently, zombies are just the tip of the iceberg for their grand plans.
Warzone was made for Activision to enter the battle royale genre, which is all the rage these past 3 years. But they nailed it, after using beloved characters, weapons, and maps that had been there from the franchise’s start and combining it with combat and other gameplay mechanics.
During an interview with Inverse, Activision’s Chief Revenue Officer for eSports, Brandon Snow, teased that they had been developing something new for the battle royale scene. The developers are currently looking to bring Call of Duty: Warzone into the eSports spotlight, adding to the already existing Call of Duty League eSports. Snow said that there are some “really cool new stuff” that has never been done before in the history of the popular franchise. He didn’t delve into specifics, since it’s clearly going to be something surprising, but Activision is clearly investing in the game, especially for the eSports and future tournaments.
The new season is rumoured to involve nuclear bombs, and will be coming to Verdansk on April 22. As the map already had zombie attacks at certain locations, a nuke raining down will be just what you need to wipe them out. It’s also said that players will be able to see the nuke drop through an in-game mode called Plague.
We will be waiting for the next big announcement from Activision. There’s going to be big changes.
