Call of Duty: Modern Warfare will come with a Battle Royale mode, according to a new rumor. This rumor originated from a YouTube channel TheGamingRevolution, who has a history of leaking correct information about Call of Duty games.
Afterward, an Infinity Ward developer responded to a fan on Twitter who asked about battle royale mode in Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2019. The developer responded by neither confirming or rejecting the rumor but with a gif saying “no comment”. The fact that IW is not denying or confirming the rumor is making fans believe that there will be a battle royale mode in the next entry of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare series.

As for the rumor, TheGamingRevolution cites an anonymous source claiming that the battle royale mode in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare will allow up to 152 players to compete at once on a map. Moreover, Treyarch is trying to push for 200 players in the future. As for the map, it is reportedly 3 times bigger than Blackout, which is a battle royale mode in Black Ops 4.
Furthermore, players will be grouped into squads of four and will drop into the map via an AC 130 gunship. The closing ring in this mode will consist of poisonous gas. In addition to this, there will be a revive system. Weapons will be categorized in tiers and determined by colors.
Youtube channel also mentions that the battle royale mode is 30% into development. The game mode is expected to feature a total of ten vehicles including a helicopter, a two-man ATV, a four-person pickup truck, armored vehicle and more
That said, take all of the provided information with a grain of salt until IW or Activision confirm anything. Overall, it won’t be surprising if Modern Warfare has a battle royale mode since it is the most popular genre at the moment with the likes of Fortnite and PUBG.
If the rumors are to be believed, we can expect Infinity Ward to talk about Call of Duty: Modern Warfare battle royale mode sometime soon. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2019 was announced recently with a trailer which you can check out below.
