If you were fretting about having to abandon your Warzone progress for the next Call of Duty, then here’s a surprise for you: Black Ops Cold War will share progression with Warzone, including battle pass progression – and many of your current unlocks will carry across.
The information comes from Activision’s FAQ page, which details that Warzone and Cold War are going to be rather intricately linked. Warzone will share content with Cold War, while Black Ops will include “shared progression features” to add inventory items that can be used in both titles. (In fact, we may have already seen a hint of this with the Bay of Pigs SKS that Warzone players were able to acquire during the in-game Cold War reveal event.)
On top of this, Warzone players “will still have access to Modern Warfare content they earned previously, like Operators and weapon blueprints”. It seems this is linked to a shared battle pass system between Warzone and Cold War, which will unlock post-launch content with “unified progression” across both games. This will likely take a similar approach to the way the battle pass currently works in Warzone, with “base weapons, customisation items and more” unlocked by playing.
