Activision is fighting Call of Duty: Modern Warfare battle royale leaks with subpoenas and online takedowns.
Modern Warfare’s upcoming battle royale, reportedly dubbed Warzone, is one of the worst-kept secrets in all of video games. While it remains unannounced, players have found themselves accidentally transported into its tutorial, and there is detailed information relating to its map and mechanics online.
In fact, if you boot up Modern Warfare today you’ll see a “classified” portion of its main menu. Clearly, this will turn into battle royale once Warzone launches. And Activision even released what very much looks like a teaser for the battle royale, with one soldier saying “the gas is closing in” before fan-favourite character Ghost drops in to say “they’re targeting their own”. The camera then pulls back to show soldiers dropping out of a plane into a warzone with, yes, a green gas closing in.
