Season 2 of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare kicked off yesterday, bringing a whole bunch of new content to the game. Among the new maps and operators however, was a very interesting hint that the game might be getting a battle royale mode soon. 

Our first hint that Infinity Ward was working on a battle royale mode for the game came from its very own menu. Where there were just four options on the menu before, there is now a new option that reads ‘Classified’. The biggest clue however, comes from the Season 2 cinematic trailer that now plays when players boot up the game:

The trailer shows three soldiers getting into a firefight in a new environment, when one mentions that some sort of gas is closing in. Ghost makes an appearance, and the trailer pulls back to reveal that the soldiers were exploring a large new map. A plane drops off more parachuting soldiers, while a massive wall of green gas closes in on everyone around the map. 

The trailer is about as subtle as a sledgehammer. Modern Warfare is almost certainly getting a new battle royale mode - Activision is just taking their sweet time to announce the fact. Of course, the 68GB Season 2 update is likely more than enough to keep players busy while they wait for developers to drop the new game mode.
