Call of Duty: Warzone has now launched, the free-to-play battle royale drawing the attention of a sizeable amount of players in its first days.
As popular as Call of Duty: Warzone might be, developer Infinity Ward isn't taking a laid back approach to development, already looking to increase the maximum player size from 150 to 200 players and add different team size options.
Call of Duty: Warzone 200 Players and Different Team Sizes
"For one thing, we are initially going to roll out with 150 players, when you are typically seeing 60 to 100. Actually, I can tell you we are already playing with 200 players. We are going to release that a little bit later.", Infinity Ward Co-head Patrick Kelly told USA Today.
"So let’s say you show up alone and just want to play solo ... or if you show up with a buddy, you just check the box that says, ‘Don’t fill my squad,’ and you will just be a duo,", Kelly told the outlet when talking about the different team sizes the developer is currently testing.
"I can tell you we have four- and five-player squads we are already playing with. 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.", he continued.
In the same interview, Kelly called Warzone "the most ambitious environment we have ever built in the franchise’s history".
Call of Duty: Warzone launched with support for 150 players and trios, the latter being rather limiting for players who're fans of playing battle royale titles solo or in duos. News of more options being on the way is sure to please fans.
The first major free-to-play venture in the Call of Duty series started with a bang, drawing in over 6 million players in the first day following release.
Call of Duty: Warzone is out now on PC, Xbox One and PS4.
