Modern Warfare is gone, there is only Warzone!

Modern Warfare has been replaced by Warzone on Blizzard's launcher

Modern Warfare is gone, there is only Warzone!

Modern Warfare is gone; there is only Warzone!

What happened to Modern Warfare? It has disappeared from Activision Blizzard's Battle.net launcher? What? Yes, one of the best Call of Duty games is no longer listed on the Battle.net launcher, and it is because of Call of Duty: Warzone. 

Instead of being a component of Call of Duty; Modern Warfare, Call of Duty: Warzone is now the main component of Call of Duty's 2019 entry. Modern Warfare is gone; it has been replaced. 

While a dedicated Warzone button for Battle.net makes sense given the game's popularity, the free-to-play battle royale has effectively removed Modern Warfare from the view of gamers. Even with all of their resources, Activision Blizzard cannot separate these games into two launcher options...  

On a technical level, this move makes a lot of sense. Warzone sits at the core of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare's design. PC gamers can delete Modern Warfare's campaign and multiplayer modes, but they cannot delete Warzone. If you want to play Call of Duty; Modern Warfare's campaign or multiplayer modes, you will need a Warzone install, it's a non-negotiable part of the Modern Warfare experience. With this in mind, it makes sense that Modern Warfare is now displayed as an optional component of Warzone and not the other way around.  

Modern Warfare is gone, there is only Warzone!

One of if not THE worst CoD I have ever played and Warzone only made it worse. Now even if I wanted to play MW again, I can't uninstall the component that I hate the most: Warzone.

Way to go...

With the strict SBMM in place for the second time now, CoD has basically destroyed itself apart from anything other than Warzone.Quote

I'm honestly having a blast in CoD BOCW, but I don't understand how these are 60 euro games. Got it as a freebie with my graphics card and it has been my main game since

Though effects of SBMM are pretty clear on occasion.Quote
