Along with the roadmap, an extensive breakdown was delivered in a blog post in regards to the upcoming Warzone integration, which is set to coincide in December.
Season one will mark the beginning of the games being merged and for the first time in Call Of Duty history will see numerous titles synchronised. Call Of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, Modern Warfare and Warzone will come together and bring universal player progression between the three games.
From season one, all experience and levelling up will be shared across all three titles, including the new Zombies mode, and will incorporate a prestige system, similar to ones seen in previous Call Of Duty games.
Enlisted ranks will now be known as Military ranks and player progression will be reset from the beginning of season one, instead using the level players have gained in Call Of Duty: Black Ops Cold War. Only the player experience will be reset, with everything previously unlocked still being available. A full player progression breakdown has also been released, which details all the new changes, including the prestige system.
Weapon progression will carry across into Call Of Duty: Warzone, ensuring both Black Ops Cold War and Modern Warfare players can bring their guns over to the battle royale. All weapon experience and levelling will also carry back over to the guns respective game. Operators from both games can also be taken over the Warzone, along with the battle pass. However, stores will be contained to each game, with Warzone items labelled specifically.
Call Of Duty: Black Ops Cold War launches on November 13 for PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S. Activision recently released the pre-install sizes and information for fans to get ready for release.

Next-gen versions of ‘Control: Ultimate Edition’ have been delayed
The next-gen versions of Control: Ultimate Edition have been delayed to work on its quality, Remedy Entertainment has announced.
Originally, a digital version of the upgrade for PS5 and both Xbox Series consoles was intended to release by the end of the year, with a physical edition arriving early 2021. The company has since announced that the next-gen version will be delayed until early 2021.
In a tweet to its followers, the developer stated the reasons behind the delay were because it wants “the final quality of the game to be awesome” and added that it will “need a bit more time to work on it”. It ended by thanking the community for their time and patience.

An update from the development team: Control Ultimate Edition will arrive on next generation platforms early 2021.
We want the final quality of the game to be awesome, and so we need a bit more time to work on it. Thank you for your understanding and patience!

The next-gen versions of Control will not be free compared to many other titles. For PS5 and Xbox Series users to obtain the enhancements, the Ultimate Edition is required to upgrade.
505 Games came forward to state the reasons behind the issue, citing that various challenges and “blockers” presented themselves that prevented a free upgrade path. It explained that “it was even more difficult to upgrade [the] current user base to next gen with full parity across platforms with [the] year-old game”.
Despite issuing these reasons, PS4 users were surprised to find they were temporarily able to access the next-gen upgrade for free. Additionally, Ghostrunner was announced to be getting a next-gen patch, which is also handled by 505 Games.
Control: Ultimate Edition recently appeared on the Nintendo Switch. Players are able to access the game via a cloud version, so long as their internet can handle the speeds.
