Infinity Ward is yet to confirm the prospect of a fully-fledged Battle Royale mode in Modern Warfare, although rumors suggest it’s on the horizon. In fact, a new rumor claims that the Ground War mode with more than 100 players will be played on the Modern Warfare Battle Royale map.

In addition to 20v20, a 100+
Nevertheless, Infinity Ward has confirmed the mode is set to launch on October 25, meaning players will be able to get their hands on it as soon as the game arrives. Here’s part of the description they provided thus far.
An all-new Ground War, an epic large-scale mode supporting more than 100-players.
There’s been a little confusion as to whether this is somewhat similar to a fully-fledged Battle Royale mode. Many top news outlets such as Endgadget have deemed this the equivalent to Battle Royale, although it appears to be just a Multiplayer mode.
Although it doesn’t seem to follow the concept of Battle Royale, a new rumor courtesy of TheGamingRevolution claims it will be played on the BR map. This is what most likely prompted the confusion in the first place.
Further to this, TGR also claims that there is a smaller version of the Battle Royale map for other Ground War modes. Rather than the entire map, this only includes the city in the
Overall, we believe a mode with more than 100 players is an excellent move by Infinity Ward. It provides another aspect to Call of Duty Modern Warfare which hasn’t really been seen before within the franchise. Players have a larger variety to choose from, while also being able to drive around in colossal tanks.

Infinity Ward is yet to showcase gameplay of the colossal Ground War mode, although many have acclaimed the prospect. What are your thoughts on this mode within Call of Duty Modern Warfare?

The announcement of Battle Royale was expected at the reveal, if rumors and leaks are anything to go by. However, this wasn’t the case, which would usually suggest Battle Royale will be arriving as post-launch content.
According to previous rumors, the Modern Warfare Battle Royale map is set to feature an array of iconic locations from past games within the series, in addition to some new areas.
Rumors prior to the reveal event claim there are roughly around 35 points-of-interests on the map, many of which are remakes.
Gaming INTEL is not completely sold on the rumors of Battle Royale within Modern Warfare. That said, there’s still a good chance of it being on the horizon. We’ll have to wait and see.
