One of the main features of the delivery of any sequel is the upgrade of gameplay and features from the original title, and war zone 2 shouldn’t be any different.

Insiders have reported there will be “no past weapon integrations” either, meaning the current arsenal of Modern Warfare 2019, Black Ops Cold War, Avant-gardeand modern warfare 2 (en route) will not be available.

The new game will be “built from the ground up” with a “new play space and sandbox mode”, as well as its own selection of classic games Call of Duty weapons.
