February 1, 2023: With attention turning to Season Two, there are still no signs of Warzone 2 ranked play launching anytime soon.

Competitive Warzone continues to grow thanks to numerous tournaments taking place on a regular basis. However, the lack of ranked play leaves many without a place to get their fix of competition and doesn't introduce casual players to the high-stakes events that feature huge prize pools and the very best players on the planet.


Call of Duty often struggles to cater to its competitive scenes, whether it's multiplayer or the battle royale. In comparison to rival battle royale titles, the lack of Warzone 2 ranked play is far from ideal. However, with the launch of Warzone 2, things could change.

Before we share the intel on Warzone 2 ranked play, don't forget to take a look at our guide showcasing the best Warzone 2 guns to get familiar with before you drop into the action.

Will Warzone 2 have ranked play?

Despite leaks claiming the game will feature some kind of competitive playlist, information on Warzone 2 ranked play remains slim. According to @TheGhostOfHope, a test will take place in the current version of Warzone but with the final season already nearing the halfway point, there are no signs of any testing taking place.


In March, Raven Software confirmed a ranked mode for Warzone is in the works but since then, information has dried up much to the concern of the community.

Once we hear more, we will update the hub with the latest intel on Warzone 2's ranked mode.

Warzone 2 ranked play skill divisions

For those familiar with ranked modes in other battle royale titles, the chance of Warzone 2 ranked play featuring an extensive set of skill divisions to divide the player base is high.

Whether it's bronze, silver, and gold or something involving a skill rating, players will have the chance to work their way to the very top of the ladder in order to battle it out against the very best players on the planet.

Warzone 2 ranked play release date

Typically, ranked modes don't make an appearance in a new Call of Duty title at launch which is annoying for those that want a more competitive way to play. If Warzone 2 does feature a ranked mode, the likely release date is the launch of Season One which could coincide with the Warzone 2 release date.


Despite the leaks, there's still no sign of Warzone 2 ranked play appearing in the battle royale. As soon as we hear more intel, we'll update the guide with the latest information.

Warzone 2 season 1 reloaded start date

The mid-season update for Warzone 2's first season is on the horizon. Season One Reloaded is expected to start on December 14 but the update won't contain a ranked playlist for the battle royale.
