While Activision Blizzard was late to the free Battle Royale shootout party, they made their entry count. Call of Duty: Warzone is easily one of the controversial publisher’s biggest moneymakers right now. If it wasn’t, it wouldn’t make sense that every Call of Duty game has been built around it since 2020. However, while Warzone doesn’t look any the worse for wear, there have been some rumors of a Warzone sequel for a while.
Now, it looks like Warzone 2 is coming much sooner than expected after some content creators got word of the game.

Tom Henderson is an industry insider who has been privy to the inner workings of video game developers, especially when it comes to Call of Duty and Battlefield, but he is not an official source. Given his background, it doesn’t hurt to pay attention to what he has to say.
For example, Henderson confirmed Warzone 2 “in a call with content creators” and spilled the beans on Warzone 2, explaining how Activision Blizzard had to build Warzone 2 “from the ground up” and that the game “will come with Modern Warfare 2”. Henderson also claims that Activision Blizzard will be lifting the embargo on Warzone 2 starting tomorrow, February 11, so we should start hearing more official Warzone 2 news over the weekend.
