Call Of Duty: Warzone Will Be Taken Offline For 12 Days
Activision is taking Warzone offline for 12 days to focus on keeping the sequel stable, and cosmetics will not be carried over.
Patch notes outline how the studio will handle the next big release over the holidays in the most recent Call of Duty blog.
Raven Software expects Call of Duty: Warzone servers to return on November 28 at 10 am PT after going offline on November 16 at 8 am PT.
Call of Duty: Warzone 2.0 will be released as part of Modern Warfare 2 Season 1 on November 16 at 10 a.m. PT.
During the downtime, Raven Software developers will "focus on ensuring the new Warzone 2.0 free-to-play ecosystem is running effectively."
The blog also mentions that this gives them time to observe an upcoming US holiday and ensure that both games are "fully stable."
The original Warzone will be relaunched later as Call of Duty: Warzone Caldera, and players can try out the 2.0 release for free while it is unavailable.
In addition, "a few items" will be provided free of charge to Warzone players so that they can use them in Warzone 2.0.
However, the item bonuses end there, and player cosmetics from the original Warzone will not be carried over.
