Call of Duty: Warzone PS5/XSX Versions Still Coming, Original Verdansk Map Gone for Good


Call of Duty: Warzone may have just refreshed its map, but players have been left to wonder about another potential update – when will the game finally come to Xbox Series X/S and PS5? Of course, Warzone can be played on those systems via backward compatibility, but a full native port would be nice. Activision promised one was be coming back in early 2020, but we’ve heard nothing since.

Well, the folks at Charlie Intel got in contact with Warzone developers Raven Software, and they confirmed that their tech team is hard at work on an XSX/PS5 version of the game. Apparently, key features of the next-gen update will be 120fps support, faster load times, and maybe a field-of-view slider. Unfortunately, Raven did not provide a timeline for when to expect the next-gen versions.
