Call of Duty free-to-play 2020 Battle Royale mode is a standalone game

Call of Duty free-to-play 2020

With the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare beta on the horizon, attentions are already turning to the next chapter in the series. Apparently, the Call of Duty free-to-play 2020 Battle Royale mode is going to be a standalone game, although still associated to the Modern Warfare brand.

The news came from LongSensation, who is known for a long history of Call of Duty leaks. He was the one that revealed the name of this year's Call of Duty and talked about the ways that the game would break the mold of the franchise.

One of his latest tweets mentions that the Battle Royale mode from Call of Duty: Modern Warfare will be a free mode that is releasing in early 2020. It will be a standalone mode that is still connected to the core game:

“So apparently Battle Royale in #ModernWarfare will be a free mode to release in early 2020. It will be downloadable as a separate game, but also will still be connected to the core game. If this is true then it's a very good move by Activision.”

He adds that the intro will include Infinity Ward, Raven Software and Activision, leading to the main menu for Battle Royale.

In another tweet, LongSensation says that the next full chapter of the Call of Duty series may be called Call of Duty: Black Ops or Call of Duty: Black Ops V. It will be set during the Cold War, spanning over 40 years of conflict that includes Vietnam and Korean war. He says that this game will be even grittier than 2019's Call of Duty: Modern Warfare.

The idea of a Call of Duty free-to-play 2020 Battle Royale mode isn't new. As soon as Blackout's player base started dwindling, rumors about Activision's intentions of making a free Battle Royale Call of Duty game started making the rounds. Maybe 2020 is the year when it will finally happen.
