CoD Modern Warfare Season 2: Battle Royale not in roadmap for new multiplayer modes

CoD Modern Warfare Season 2 Battle Royale Not In Roadmap For New Multiplayer Modes

The much-anticipated Battle Royale for Call Of Duty Modern Warfare is not included in the Season 2 roadmap for new multiplayer modes.

Call Of Duty Modern Warfare Season 2 will commence today. An exciting trailer was leaked and then officially published yesterday showcasing the return of the classic and popular multiplayer map Rust, but a lot of fans are still wondering if the previously leaked Battle Royale is going to be a feature of the second season. Unfortunately, Activision and Infinity Ward's roadmap highly suggests it won't be.

Before Call Of Duty Modern Warfare Season 2 starts this evening, you all have double XP bonuses to take advantage of until 09:00 PST, 12:00 EST and 17:00 GMT. These are the times for when the promo ends so you only have a few hours left to get busy.

Now, back onto Season 2, Activision and Infinity Ward's roadmap has been revealed. It includes a bunch of exciting additions that will please fans, but the glaring omission is Battle Royale.

Call Of Duty Modern Warfare Season 2 Battle Royale mode

Battle Royale has been anticipated by many Call Of Duty Modern Warfare fans as a multiplayer mode that would arrive as a part of Season 2.

There have been numerous leaks of the Battle Royale mode in the past such as in December 2019 when an in-game bug appeared to reveal the map.

In addition to this bug, January 2020 also saw another leak with Metro reporting that YouTube channel The Gaming Revolution had been sent a loading screen image by an anonymous dataminer.

The much-speculated Call Of Duty Modern Warfare Battle Royale mode is said to include 200-players judging by a datamine back in November, but nothing has been officially revealed.

Many had hoped that the hypothetical multiplayer mode would be a part of Season 2, yet that doesn't appear to be the case thanks to Activision's trailer yesterday and their roadmap.

It's still possible that the mode could be a surprise or a free spin-off as also rumoured, but for now all we know about Season 2 prior to its launch is what has been shared.

New Ground War map

  • Zhokov Boneyard

New Gunfight Maps

  • Bazaar

  • And more

New multiplayer modes

  • Gunfight Tournaments

  • CDL Playlist

New Operator

  • Ghost

New weapons

  • GRAU 5.56

  • STRIKER 45

In addition to the above that should all be available from day one, the roadmap also shows what will be released further down the line:

New multiplayer map

  • Khandor Hideout

New Operators

  • Talon

  • Mace

New multiplayer modes

  • Infected Ground War

  • Gunfight Variants

It's possible Activision and Infinity Ward are keeping it as a surprise, but it appears likely that the much-anticipated 200-player mode won't be a part of the second season.
