November 16th at 10 A.M Pacific time but Two hours before that the original war Zone servers will go offline for 12 days So that developers can focus on ensuring The new Warzone 2.0 free to play Ecosystem is running effectively I have a hunch they probably also want People to check out the brand new Version they've been working hard on uh But at least you know it's free so There's that For anyone itching for classic war zone Rest assured the servers will be back Online November 18th at 10 A.M Pacific Time and Warzone 1.0 will be rebranded As Warzone Caldera the blog also notes That Cosmetics from Warzone will not Carry over to the new game but Activision will compensate Wars on Players with gifts in 2.0 the Caldera Relaunch is considered a separate game And not tied to Modern Warfare 2 or Warzone 2.0 content including the new Battle pass and store bundles battle Pass content weapons store bundles XP Weapon XP player progression cross Progression or other purchases from Call Of Duty Modern Warfare war zone Black Ops Cold War and Vanguard will be Accessible only within Warzone Caldera Or within the respective games Cod Points will be transferable between all Games but Double XP and double weapon XP Tokens will not be transferable between
