Call Of Duty: Warzone Will Eventually Get 200-Player Matches
Call of Duty: Warzone has launched on PS4, Xbox One, and PC with 150 player matches, but that number will increase in the future.
Call of Duty: Warzone has launched on PS4, Xbox One, and PC with 150-player matches, making it one of the bigger battle royale games out there. However, it's not going to settle on that number for long--even more populated games are coming.
Talking to USA Today, Infinity Ward's Patrick Kelly has said that Infinity Ward is currently running 200-person games in-house. "Actually, I can tell you we are already playing with 200 players," he says. "We are going to release that a little bit later."
200 player matches have been a rumored target for Call of Duty: Warzone for a while now--long before it was officially unveiled--so it's good to have this figure confirmed.
Kelly also says that bigger squads will likely be possible in the future. "I can tell you we have four-and five-player squads we are already playing with," he told USA Today. "But we want to launch with something we know works really well and we have tested to the nines and then play around with these different team sizes."
Call of Duty: Warzone makes use of its huge numbers with a unique respawn mechanic, so it's suited well to larger player numbers. Of course, 200 players will make it even harder to win and see the game's excellent victory screen.
