Is Warzone 2 Getting a Ranked Mode?

It appears Warzone 2 will be getting a ranked mode at some point throughout its game cycle.

At the moment there have still been no announcements for when ranked play will come to Warzone 2. However, Infinity Ward has previously said they do have plans to add one.

During the original Warzone’s Season Two, developer Josh Bridges said in an interview with content creator TeeP “I cannot wait to get to ranked play because that’s ultimately what we need, to make sure that highly skilled players have an end game”.

Bridges later went on to say they do not want to rush its release as they “want to do it right”.

Plans for ranked play in Warzone, renamed Warzone: Caldera, appear to have been abandoned since then.

However, more recently, Infinity Ward Director of Communications Stephanie Snowden talked about a Warzone 2 ranked mode.

Snowden stated at COD Next in September 2022 that they were listening to the community about a number of issues including rank play.

So it’s possible that sometime in 2023, Warzone 2 may introduce a ranked mode. Although, this was the last time a competitive playlist in Warzone was up for discussion.

The introduction of a ranked mode would also reduce the need for Skill Based Matchmaking in Warzone 2. A change that the community would certainly welcome.

Warzone 2 is one of the only Battle Royale games that have yet to have a ranked mode included in its game.

Since its release in 2020, Infinity Ward has not catered to their competitive players making them one of the only ones in the genre not to do so.

Games such as Fortnite, PUBG & Apex Legends all include a dedicated competitive playlist. This allows players to choose between a tougher or casual experience.

For now, if you are looking for your fix of competitive Call of Duty, don’t worry as ranked play is coming to MW2!

Although it hasn’t been released just yet, you can test it out in the CDL moshpit playlist!
