It’s not clear exactly how any of these will function, or in what way they’ll be implemented into the game. It’ll be especially interesting to see what type of competitive rewards will end up in the game and if these will appear in the form of exclusive skins or whether fans will get more physical rewards.

As you can see, not many of the games since the mode was first introduced have really used the ranked mode system, and a return to actual support for it will be welcomed with open arms by the community at large. Though if previous attempts at returning to this mode are anything to by, then it’s likely Activision-Blizzard and developer Treyarch doesn’t really support it much at all post launch.

Did Modern Warfare 2019 Have a Ranked Play?

Call Of Duty Modern Warfare 2019 did not have ranked play in any form, and this would mark the first return to the mode since Call Of Duty Vanguard.
