Call of Duty: Cold War and Warzone are destined to have a shared universe as Treyarch Studios are trying to intertwine both these different IPs into the same experience where you will be able to unlock a new weapon mod in one game and it will reflect in the game.
How Will Call of Duty: Cold War Work With Warzone
Call of Duty: Cold War is Infinity Ward’s 2020 entry in the Call of Duty universe but it was Warzone that helped to bring Call of Duty to the battle royale genre inviting millions of players and becoming one of the most-watched video game on Twitch since release.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and Warzone were released together and shared progress between them where you only needed to unlock a certain perk or weapon mod in one game and you could use it in the other.
While Call of Duty: Cold War will mostly focus on Campaign and Multiplayer modes, there certainly will be a battle pass system that will work with Warzone helping players to share more than just weapons and attachments.
This also means that players might get to share XP interchangeably, Dan Bunting, Co-Studio Head at Treyarch said, “Following the launch of the game, Warzone will remain tightly connected to Black Ops with loads of shared content, gameplay, and stories that will evolve the Warzone experience in new ways to keep players excited.
Black Ops Cold War will usher in Chapter 2 of Call of Duty Warzone, continuing and extending the blockbuster free-to-play, free for everyone, battle royale experience.
Black Ops will share progression, so items in the game will carry over with you to Chapter Two. And on the topic of shared experiences, Black Ops will continue to support free multiplayer DLC maps and the battle pass chock-full of post-launch content.”
While all of this is brewing, there are talks about a new map being introduced to Call of Duty Warzone that might resemble one from Call of Duty: Cold War to make things even more interesting. There’s still a ton of information that is yet to be revealed and we will keep you updated with everything as and when new information is revealed.
