Call of Duty: Warzone will come to next-generation consoles PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X, according to an interview published by GamerGen.
Warzone has quickly become one of the most popular battle royale titles in the genre since its early March release. The Call of Duty: Modern Warfare battle royale is free-to-play and supports cross-platform play between Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC players.
Infinity Ward’s narrative director, Taylor, Kurosaki, spoke to GamerGen and mentioned the studio’s plans for Warzone moving to the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X.

“I know that our plan is Warzone is going to be around for quite some time, so as soon as those new systems are out and available I’m sure we’ll support them,” Kurosaki said in the interview.
It’s no surprise given the game’s success that next-gen ports are in the studio’s plans. Call of Duty fans were skeptical considering that Blackout fell to the wayside in Black Ops 4 when Modern Warfare released. Blackout wasn’t free-to-play though nor a standalone title.
If Infinity Ward remains devoted to Warzone after a new Call of Duty title comes out, the future looks bright for the battle royale title. Consistent and relevant updates keep games in the genre alive using Fortnite and Epic Games as an example.
A new map is already being teased for Warzone, according to recent leaks.
