Warzone 2.0 is just around the corner, and the hype is real, But will Warzone 2 be next gen only?

Players are excited to drop into the new map and try out all the different guns in the game. There have been many significant improvements in the game, such as better physics, greater graphics, and likely performance upgrades as well.

However, some fans have been wondering whether Warzone 2.0 will also be on the previous generation consoles or will only remain on the next-gen PS5 and Xbox Series X/S. Worry not, as we’ll answer that in this article.

If you haven’t gotten the chance to get your hands on one of the next-gen consoles, then you’ll be happy to know that Warzone 2.0 will not just come to PS5 and Xbox Series X/S but will also be arriving on the Xbox One and PS4!

Warzone 2.0 will also have crossplay, which means that even if you have an old-gen console, you’ll likely get the chance to play with your mates that have upgraded to the newer generations. Not only that, but you can also play with anyone else with a different console too, making it a much more social experience. 

What Does This Mean For Warzone 2.0?

So, that means that Warzone 2.0 might’ve been held back while trying to cater to both generations of consoles. We’ve seen this many times with games that try to support both consoles. The previous generations end up bottlenecking the game and limiting gameplay, especially graphics.

Therefore, everyone is slightly skeptical of Warzone 2.0 and how much of a step up it truly might be from the original game. Many fans are sad and disappointed that the game is not next-gen only. 

But all of these are still speculations. Perhaps Activision found a way to make the game work for both generations without shortcomings and falling too much into limitations. We’ll have to find out when the game releases on November 16th, 2022.

Regardless, the fact that the previous generations can enjoy the game is still good news for many players out there! 

Did Last Gen Affect Modern Warfare 2?

With Modern Warfare 2 now widely available for players worldwide, you might wonder if that game suffered the fate that is waiting for Warzone 2. In truth, MW2 was likely held back slightly by needing to be playable on PS4/Xbox One rather than purely next gen systems.

The graphical differences are probably small enough that you wouldn’t notice them while playing online. So you probably don’t have to worry about the game’s performance.

Alternatively, it’s not unreasonable for you to worry about the graphics. MW2 is supposed to be a next gen COD experience, but with it held back by old hardware, we still haven’t been able to enjoy it in all its glory just yet. We’re not likely to get a proper next gen COD game until the PS5 and XSX have sold a lot more units.
