Call of Duty Modern Warfare may include a Battle Royale mode in 2020, according to rumors on social media.
Call of Duty Modern Warfare Battle Royale Mode Might Be Free-to-Play
Battle Royale games are the latest and huge trend in the gaming world. We have seen a lot of different Battle Royale games coming out in the last few tears. This was due to the first success of PUBG and later the bigger success of Fortnite. However, even though the big names made Battle Royale games they did not catch on. Normally when EA or Activision goes into a game mode generally they take over. Bigger budgets and bigger teams generally rule all. However, that did not happen with Battle Royale games.
The answer was simple. PUBG did not have a price tag of $60 and Fortnite was free. This was a bigger issue for big companies. Since these companies are giants they have shareholders, and these shareholders are expecting dividends every year. This means they are not allowed to have a bad year. This creates a non-flexible working environment. Because of this, they need to implement tons of microtransactions into the games. Therefore, they are getting crushed by the community. EA and Activision are getting critiqued harshly by the community. Regardless if it is a good reason or not they are not in a great position there. In order to please the shareholders and the community, they need to think outside the box, or, take some chances. They just recently had good results.
Battle Royale Games
We have seen BFV Firestorm and Call of Duty Black Ops 4 Blackout. Both of these game where Battle Royale games with decent graphics. Also, especially when Blackout first came out players were hyped about it so much. Most were saying that this meant that PUBG was over. However, things did not go like that. PUBG is in a much better location than BO4 after all this time.
However, things might be changing. Apparently, Infinity Ward will release the Battle Royale mode as a free-to-play mode in early 2020. It will be a post-launch release as the Call of Duty Modern Warfare is coming out on October 25.
So apparently Battle Royale in #ModernWarfare will be a free mode to release in early 2020. It will be downloadable as a separate game, but also will still be connected to the core game. If this is true then it’s a very good move by Activision.

This is an incredible move by Activision. The game does look much more tactical than before. Call of Duty Modern Warfare added actual weapon recoil as well as bullet travel time. Players also can choose to play even in a 50v50 game mode. We have seen some gameplay and it does look amazing. We hope that they do a good job.
