dr. Disrespect revealed two things Warzone 2 needs to compete with Apex Legends and Fortnite – a ranked system and a better map – but only if the developers “knock it out of the park”.
On January 26, Bloomberg’s Jason Schreier revealed that Call of Duty: Warzone 2 is now in development and expected to be released sometime in 2023. However, no further details have been disclosed yet.
Of course, that means there’s plenty of room for speculation. Players are already thinking about what it takes to compete with Apex Legends and Fortnite.
dr. Disrespect, a crazy Call of Duty fan, believes that the sequel to the hit battle royale needs two things to thrive: a ranked system and better maps.
“Apex Legends is in a great place,” he said after watching the season 13 trailer. “They’re absolutely crushing right now, and that’s a good thing. It fills a certain niche in the battle royale genre that everyone really enjoys.”
The twice also praised Fortnite’s Zero Build mode, admitting that he “loves the movement” in the game and believes it is “a lot of fun”. For that reason, he thinks Warzone 2 needs to learn a thing or two from them.
“I think it really needs to be refined,” he said. †[They need to be] thinking about a potentially ranked system similar to Apex Legends, [and they need to] knock it out of the park with modern fiction and a new map.
“Instead of just being a new map and the same kind of formula, [they need to think about] how can it evolve. It feels like a lost soul now, doesn’t it? Every time I go in, I’m like, I don’t know. †
The relevant part of the video starts at 3:51:10.
dr. Disrespect has criticized Raven Software’s decisions in the past. He believes interest in Warzone is at an all-time low because of the direction they’ve steered things in, and even uninstalled the game because of it.
However, if they come through with the goods in Warzone 2, there’s a good chance he’ll be back – at least for a short while. In the meantime, however, he prefers to spend his time on Apex Legends and Fortnite.
