Call of Duty: Warzone is currently in its third season of Vanguard integration, but with the recent announcement of Warzone 2 being developed alongside this year’s upcoming Modern Warfare 2, players are still waiting to find out if their items cosmetics will carry over to the new game. Unfortunately, the Washington Post’s recent interview with the developers of Warzone didn’t provide a definitive answer.
On April 29, a reporter from The Washington Post’s Launcher spoke with Warzone developers Josh Bridge, who is Call of Duty’s Live Operations Creative Lead, and Ted Timmons, Senior Creative Director at Raven Software. While the discussion was mostly focused on Godzilla and the big changes for Season 3, the last part of the interview touched on the future of Warzone, and the interviewer asked the developers if player skins and other cosmetics would be transferred to Warzone 2.
Unfortunately, a clear yes or no answer is not provided. Instead, Bridge explained that this was a new challenge for developers, as older Call of Duty games typically only had a one- or two-year content cycle. Warzone is currently “bloated” with content from three separate titles, which the developers have previously mentioned was a cause of trouble for Caldera’s rocky initial launch in Vanguard Season 1.
“It’s a discussion about technology,” Bridge said. The developer is still working on how to handle such massive inventory management, so players will likely be waiting for some time for an announcement regarding any cosmetic inventory that may or may not transfer to Warzone 2.
Activision is still withholding details, but the publisher recently teased that Warzone 2 will have “groundbreaking innovations” to be revealed later this year. Plus, here’s everything we know about Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 so far.
Activision Blizzard continues to face lawsuits alleging incidents of sexism and harassment. The most recent allegation is just the latest in a list of investigations and lawsuits regarding Activision Blizzard’s work culture.
