We’re going to see a bunch of information about Call Of Duty: Black Ops Cold War in the coming days, starting with its Warzone crossovers. The game’s first teaser actually came up as a result of an Augmented Reality Game within Warzone itself.
Warzone Will Merge With Call Of Duty: Black Ops Cold War
Call Of Duty developer Joe Cecot, Co-Design Director, Multiplayer sat down with Red Bull for an interview. They discussed a number of topics, including how Warzone will link up with Black Ops Cold War going forward.
“There’s definitely opportunities to merge that content in and keep pushing Warzone forward with that franchise and Modern Warfare in mind,” he said. “I’m really excited. I think with that stuff we’re still… we’re working through that, we’re solidifying that and we don’t have specifics on that [yet]. But I think that is gonna breathe more life into Warzone, I think it’s exciting.”
Call Of Duty Developers Have Been Hinting At Warzone’s Potential For A While
This isn’t a huge surprise. We’ve been hearing about how Warzone will tie into the next Call Of Duty for a while now. VGC noted in their report that Infinity Ward design director hinted at this in an interview with GamesRadar.
“Although Warzone is very closely tied to Modern Warfare, it was designed from the beginning as its own game,” he said. “As the game continues to be updated over time, it will evolve and become tied to other games in the Call of Duty universe.”
Personally, I find the way they use Warzone going forward to be quite intriguing. I’m a casual Warzone player, and not a huge Call Of Duty fan overall. However, even I have to admit the way they’ve gone about integrating Warzone into Black Ops Cold War’s marketing is really clever.
Using Warzone To Tease The Next Game Is Quite Clever
For those of you who don’t know, Warzone’s map of Verdansk has a bunch of bunkers present throughout it. Players had to figure out how to access these bunkers. Once they figured that part out, they got teases for the next Call Of Duty game.
It works on a few levels. Firstly, it gives hardcore Call Of Duty fans an active role in learning about the next game in the series. On top of that, it adds another layer of fun to Warzone as a game. We’re going to hear more about Call Of Duty: Black Ops Cold War within Warzone fairly soon.
It’s also making an appearance at Gamescom’s Opening Night Live on August 27, 2020. Fans of the series are going to have a lot to chew on in the coming days.
