Warzone entered the fray of battle royale games like a cat amongst pigeons - that is if cats stole the players from the pigeons rather than catching and eating them.
With the Call of Duty branding behind it, it was inevitable really. Back in the days of Modern Warfare, CoD multiplayer was rivalled only by Halo, and the rivalry was brutal.
However, nowadays Warzone has really taken over from PUBG as the realistic battle royale game.
Despite its success, many players are wondering what will happen when a new Call of Duty game is released? Will Warzone be defunct?

Leaker ModernWarzone confirmed that there are seven seasons of Warzone in the game files.
There are currently 7 seasons in the files for #ModernWarfare and #Warzone.That's the tweet.

They did not say anything else about what they found, but we can make certain assertions from the info.
As we are currently in Season 4 of Warzone, each season has lasted for around two months. That means we're expecting Season 5 in August, and we can't wait! But what does it mean for the battle royale?

However, if we continue this pattern of a new season every two months, that would slate Season 6 for early October, and 7 for December.
Why is this important? Because these dates overlap with the release of the next-gen consoles the PS5 and Xbox Series X.
We're expecting Call of Duty: Cold War to launch with the new consoles, and many players wondered if this would spell the end for Warzone.
But, could this also mean CoD 2020 isn't getting released at the same time as next-gen consoles? Surely its release would tie into a Warzone event or new season?
The Future of Warzone

We were wondering whether Activision would release a new battle royale with the CoD 2020, or if support for Warzone would stop altogether.
However, with seven seasons confirmed in the files, we're fairly certain Warzone will continue into the new generation of Call of Duty games!
