Warzone to be the “through line” that connects Call of Duty
With the growing success of Call of Duty: Warzone, players have been wondering what it’ll mean for the stand-alone battle royale game once the next Call of Duty hits. In a new interview with website Gamergen, Infinity Ward narrative director Taylor Kurosaki addresses that very question.
“We’re in kind of uncharted territories here,” says Kurosaki. “Call of Duty has been on a very regular cadence for many many years, and Warzone has made us rethink exactly how best to release new content and how to integrate it.”
Kurosaki goes on to explain that the Call of Duty series is a “genre in itself,” and that there can be different branches of the series while all still connecting in some way.
“Warzone will be the through line that connects all of the different various sub-franchises of Call of Duty,” continues Kurosaki. “It’s going to be really cool to see how the different sub-franchises sort of come in and out of focus, but Warzone will be the one constant.”
While Kurosaki wasn’t quite ready to confirm PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X versions of Call of Duty: Warzone, his answer to that question definitely should give us all hope.
“I know that our plan is Warzone is going to be around for quite some time,” Kurosaki answers, “so as soon as those new systems are out and available I’m sure we’ll support them.”
