As the Pacific era of Warzone begins to wind down, the focus is already switching to the launch of Warzone 2 which has a 2022 release window.

Details on the next chapter of Call of Duty's take on battle royale continue to emerge following the first look at the Modern Warfare 2 campaign. The sequel to Warzone is said to bring major changes alongside a brand-new map with all-new points of interest.

In addition to launching on current-gen hardware, players are expressing their concerns with Warzone 2 launching on last-gen consoles. Some claim launching on PS4 and Xbox One could impact graphical performance.

Warzone 2 Last-Gen Launch Concerns Players

While eagle-eyed players managed to sport a sneak peek at the Warzone 2 map during the first Modern Warfare 2 reveal trailer, Activision confirms "Warzone 2.0 is scheduled for release later this year on the same platforms."

Players continue to share their thoughts on the topic. Twitter user 'NTFCNathan' says Warzone launching on the previous generation of consoles will hinder the capabilities of Warzone 2 on current-gen and PC.

Reddit user "RamboBashore" says they're "sick of the old gen consoles holding games back," with many sharing the same sentiment. With Warzone 2 described as an extension of Modern Warfare 2, it's unclear how Infinity Ward intends to balance both titles on two different generations of consoles.
