Future Call of Duty titles on PC will be accessible on battle.net beneath one header – simply, Call of Duty. Players can access Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II and the second iteration of Warzone through one “central location,” which would be “represented by the Call of Duty logo.”
Activision Blizzard confirmed in an announcement that the change “should make deploying to the battlefield even more straightforward, so you and your squad can worry less about where to launch and more about how to score your next victory.”
Players will be granted the choice between the two titles. The name change should make the process of switching from one to the other seamless. Warzone 2 is unique since it succeeds the original battle royale known these days as Warzone: Caldera. From September, Caldera will be shut down once and for all. Hopefully, that clears up the confusion.
As for players who want to dip into Black Ops Cold War, the first Modern Warfare released in 2019, and the online-only multiplayer Black Ops 4, they can access these titles separately via the Favorites bar and Personal Library.
The studio has not confirmed whether the name change will affect players on other platforms, like PlayStation and Xbox, and what it will mean for future Call of Duty titles beyond this year. Chief among them is the long-anticipated, and perhaps Activision’s worst-kept secret right now, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare III.
