Will Warzone Progress Carry Over To Warzone 2?

Released as an extension of 2019's "Call of Duty: Modern Warfare" reboot, "Call of Duty: Warzone" — Activision's take on the popular battle royale genre — was set upon the public in 2020 and steadily gained traction throughout the COVID-hampered year. Due to its immense success and longevity, "Warzone" has become a staple among "Call of Duty" fans and has since been included with every subsequent release in the series, making an appearance in both "Black Ops: Cold War" and "Vanguard" as well.

Without question, "Warzone" has emerged as a heavy competitor to other battle royale titles such as "Fortnite," "Apex Legends," and "PUBG." As such, it's only natural that it receives a sequel, too. Activision has announced that shortly after the release of the highly anticipated "Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2," a sequel to "Warzone" will also make its way to the gaming market, as opposed to incorporating the already-existing title into "Modern Warfare 2." While most gamers might express optimism at seeing what "Warzone 2.0" has in store, it begs the question: How many of their achievements will they be able to bring over with them to this new edition, if any? Activision addressed this issue following a more in-depth reveal of "Modern Warfare 2."

Warzone players cannot carry over their progress to Warzone 2.0

The most hardcore of "Warzone" players that have now been playing the game for over 2 years throughout a cycle that has lasted 6 seasons thus far. When breaking that down, that is tons of content, achievements, and skins that players have unlocked since picking up the game. With some players having that much equity built into "Warzone," many would want that kind of immense progress to carry over to "Warzone 2.0" when it does eventually release. Unfortunately, this will not be an option for them.

According to an Activision blog post, players will not be able to carry over their "Warzone" progress to "Warzone 2.0" due to the latter featuring "brand-new progression and inventories" to coincide with "Modern Warfare 2." The blog post clarifies that "Warzone 2.0" will act as a separate experience from its predecessor. This news might be disappointing for longtime "Warzone" veterans that wish to see years' worth of hard work acknowledged and carried over to a future title, but may also be a relief to gamers newer to the "Warzone" experience.
