It’s no secret by now that this year’s Call of Duty — Black Ops Cold War — will tie in to Infinity Ward’s free-to-play battle royale hit, Call of Duty: Warzone. For those wondering when this Black Ops Cold War & Warzone integration is happening, it’ll be this December!
This was revealed by Activision President & Chief Operating Officer Daniel Alegre, during the latest Activision quarterly earnings call.
We are releasing the title into the largest and most engaged community at the time of launch in franchise history and we are leveraging our direct digital relationships with our players to build awareness through entirely new in-game initiatives. Black Ops Cold War’s in-game content will be centered around the same in-game system that resonated so well with players in Modern Warfare. And starting with the first season of in-game content in December, Black Ops Cold War will be integrated into Warzone.
We’ll bring Black Ops Cold War’s characters and weaponry into the free-to-play experience. Along with substantial new content ensuring that Warzone remains both a terrific experience and a powerful on-ramp for the franchise’s premium content. – Activision President & Chief Operating Officer, Daniel Alegre
With Black Ops Cold War out on November 13, it looks like players won’t have to wait long to see how Treyarch’s latest influences Infinity Ward’s game.
