Is Warzone ending? Will Call of Duty: Warzone be shut down?

What is happening here?

As the name implies, Last Stand is the final season of content released for Call of Duty: Warzone. How Activision handles their battle royale spinoff drastically differs from their mainline games. Because of that, there are a lot of questions being thrown around. Is Warzone ending for good? If so, when will it be shut down?

Is Call of Duty: Warzone coming to an end?

While Last Stand is being billed as the “end” of Warzone as you know it, it is more the closing of a chapter. Call of Duty: Warzone 2.0 is an entirely separate game from the Warzone you know now and will not be attached directly to the Modern Warfare 2 client like the first game is with the first Modern Warfare, although both games have been built up side by side. There is no confirmed release date for Warzone 2.0, but it is expected to come out by the end of the year, likely in November.

When Warzone 2.0 releases, the first game will continue to be playable, according to noted leaker Tom Henderson. It will be known as Warzone Legacy, so fans of this experience will be able to return to it while the story and content continue in the newer game. Your current classes and purchases in Warzone will not carry over to the new title.

It is important to note that a lot of this information has been gathered from leaks, so we do not know the official plan for Warzone going forward, but we do know a new separate game is being made. Activision will reveal more details at Call of Duty: Next on September 15.

When is Call of Duty: Warzone being shut down?

While development and story will continue and expand in Warzone 2.0, the current version or Warzone will still be playable and not be shut down. It is a different game, so don’t expect any connection to the new experience if you continue to play the first Warzone.
