share to other networks share to twitter share to facebook

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2019 is the most hotly anticipated FPS this year and many are expecting a battle royale to return, yet we've so far heard no official word or release date for it.

The Modern Warfare 2019 Battle Royale's only real acknowledgement has come from the developers saying they are focusing on the multiplayer rather than a battle royale.


With Gamescom 2019 later this month, we can expect to hear an official announcement.

Many rumours have been circulating about a Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2019 beta and with the Modern Warfare 2019 global reveal at the start of August, its likely if we are to hear about it that it will be at Gamescom 2019.

However, many are expecting Infinity Ward and Activision to focus on the Modern Warfare 2019 Campaign and Spec Ops.


When Will We See Modern Warfare 2019's Battle Royale?

The latest Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Battle Royale rumour is that it will be coming in 2020 as a standalone, free-to-play game - meaning it will miss the initial launch of Modern Warfare 2019 and may miss the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2019 beta.

LongSensation reported that the mode will be free to play and downloadable seperately.

Likely the intro will be "INFINITY WARD" "RAVEN SOFTWARE" "ACTIVISION" then a loading screen taking you to the main menu for BR. (Meant 2020, not 2021) :D

What Do We Know About The Modern Warfare 2019 Battle Royale?

According to a Twitter thread, the Modern Warfare 2019 battle royale features similar aspects to Blackout.

This new game will also have double the number of combatants, which makes sense as it's rumoured to be three times bigger that the original Blackout map.

Very similarly to Blackout, it will comprise of different maps in the game's franchise.

We will see past Modern Warfare maps in Modern Warfare 2019's battle royale. We can only hope at the Global reveal we hear about a potential Modern Warfare 2019 beta, which may include access to the battle royale mode, similar to Blackout.


Recently, TheGamingRevolution uploaded a video giving lots of detail about the Battle Royale mode.


In this video he portays a "rough sketch" of what the battle royale map will look like, currently the locations are unnamed and he obviously gotten creative with it in a comical way.

In the map there are supposedly 35 locations to visit and many will be locations from the spec ops mode, as well as past maps and campaign missions.

This sounds fantastic, but TheGamingRevolution did mention that it may not be optimal for gameplay and the map may need to be drastically changed to function properly.
