Activision recently announced the current status of its highly anticipated titles, Call of Duty Modern Warfare II and Warzone 2.0.

Alongside the very vague release details, Activision revealed some particularly interesting details about what Warzone 2.0 will bring to our plate. Warzone 2.0 will not only come with new systems and content from Modern Warfare II, but the long-awaited free-to-play title will also feature an entirely new progression system and new inventories.

The above reveal suggests that players cannot transfer their Warzone content to Warzone 2.0. While all of the upcoming new content in Call of Duty Warzone 2.0 sounds extremely intriguing, it also means a huge loss of financial resources for fans who spent tons building up their Warzone inventories.

Call of Duty Warzone 2.0 launch will come with new inventory

Even for Call of Duty Modern Warfare II, Activision has announced a hefty price tag for the long-awaited sequel. Unsurprisingly, the unexplained price increase has attracted a lot of negative fan feedback online.

Modern Warfare II is the most expensive CoD title sold to date, with the standard edition selling for $69.99. The game will also feature microtransactions and a battle pass, like its prequel. The Activist blog on June 8 clearly mentions the state of inventories in the upcoming Warzone 2.0.

He says, “In order to deliver this cutting-edge experience, Warzone 2.0 will feature new content and systems from Modern Warfare II with all-new progress and inventories.”

Now, the statement blatantly points to the fact that players will have to rebuild their inventories in Warzone 2.0 from scratch.

Players will not have the option to import their prized possessions from Warzone today.

Fans Aren’t Happy With Activision’s Decision To Reset Inventory For Warzone 2.0

As fans have pointed out, Warzone bundles are currently priced at $10-$20. Players who have massive inventory have spent a fortune on it. Activision may have given fans a reason to stop spending money building inventory because “everything you buy will eventually disappear”.

However, Activision has mentioned that today’s Warzone will continue to exist as a separate experience. “Today’s Warzone will continue as a separate experience that will include a continuation of player progression and inventories within that Warzone experience.” the blog post says. On the other hand, why would players replay the original Warzone if there is a better Warzone 2.0 out there? We are wondering.

TimTheTatman took this opportunity to remind everyone how good the old prestige system was, compared to the horde of microtransactions featuring the franchise in its modern titles.

That’s a huge inventory of a loss!

In fact, Pamaj has spent around $7,000-$14,000 on his Call of Duty Warzone inventory, as noted by one fan.

On the other hand, some fans seem to have expected this in advance.

Activision is treating Warzone 2.0 as a completely separate experience that would come with new weapons, operators, maps, and more. Therefore, today’s inventory may not be relevant to the next Warzone experience. However, the game featured a ton of microtransactions, leading players to spend heavily. As a result, the reaction was inevitable.
