Here’s an excerpt of the announcement made today:
As of September 21, 2023, Call of Duty®: Warzone™ Caldera will shut down, as our teams focus on future Call of Duty content including the current Warzone free-to-play experience.
Players should prepare for even more Warzone content across consoles and PC, as well as a new era of Battle Royale on the go with the launch of Call of Duty®: Warzone™ Mobile, which includes a shared Battle Pass and cross-progression. The Call of Duty team and Studios look forward to sharing more details soon.
Please note that the Warzone Caldera shut down has no impact to current Warzone gameplay, inventory, or player progression in Al Mazrah or the other available maps, and we look forward to continuing with you in that new Warzone experience.
Yep, that’s about it. I have no idea how many people still play the original Warzone, but I’m guessing there’s not a lot. If you are one of the few, share this and let others know to get as much game time as you can, since you won’t be able to in just a few months.
