With yesterday’s Call of Duty: Modern Warfare patch, not only did we get a host of gameplay fixes and new stuff, but it seems Infinity Ward has added a little teaser as well. In case you didn’t know, the previous patch before yesterday brought a “Classified” section on the menus, and now, that Modern Warfare Classified portion is actually starting to tease something.
Aside from each menu entry getting a new splash screen, the background of the Classified section has the words “Transmission Incoming” scrolling kinda fast with blurred text.
While we can pretend and not know what this is, the fact that Activision themselves had their legal hounds go after a Call of Duty Warzone leaker is kind of a dead giveaway that this is indeed for Call of Duty Warzone — the rumored name for Modern Warfare’s battle royale mode, which has been rumored to also be F2P (free-to-play) and will be a standalone experience. Of course, this could very well be for something else, but if I had to wager a guess, this is just another tease for the upcoming battle royale mode. And it’s not like Infinity Ward hasn’t done a bigger tease than this in the game before.
