When does Warzone Caldera shut down? That's one question on the minds of the original Warzone which is shutting down. Call of Duty's second attempt at a battle royale struck gold during lockdown, with millions dropping into Verdansk before it switched to the Pacific island of Caldera.

As attention slowly turns towards the launch of Season 4 Reloaded for the current edition of Warzone, Activision recently announced the servers for Warzone Caldera would close down for good, marking the end of an era.

But, before we take a closer look at the Warzone Caldera shutdown date, take a look at our other guides showcasing the best guns and when the next double XP event will take place.

Warzone Caldera shutdown date

Activision has revealed the Warzone Caldera servers will stop on September 21, 2023. It's still a few months away but it does mean fans will lose their weapon blueprints and cosmetic items that didn't transfer over to Warzone 2 when it launched.

Do Warzone skins transfer to Warzone 2?

No, all Warzone skins and cosmetics will disappear once the Warzone Caldera servers switch off in September. FaZe Clan member Swagg is far from impressed with the decision.

Why is Warzone Caldera shutting down?

Activision says the decision to shut down Warzone Caldera is down to its studios preparing to focus on new content. The publisher says: "Players should prepare for even more Warzone content across consoles and PC. The Call of Duty team and studios look forward to sharing more details soon."

Details are expected to involve the launch of Season 4 Reloaded and Warzone Mobile which sees the return of the iconic Verdansk and Rebirth Island maps.

Warzone Season 4 Reloaded start date

The halfway point for the current Warzone season isn't far away. We estimate Season 4 Reloaded to launch on July 12 which isn't far away. If you still want to drop into Warzone Caldera before it closes, you can still do so for a few more months.
