Activision has said that Warzone will still receive support but players shouldn't expect any major content updates beyond October.
Warzone 2.0 will launch on 16th November on all platforms.
Warzone's current version may be renamed to Warzone Legacy or Warzone Rebirth.

Warzone 2.0 is set to release on 16th November and a lot of players are concerned about the future of Call of Duty: Warzone. Activision had stated that support for Warzone will continue even after the launch of Warzone 2.0 but we do not know the extent of the support yet. We know for a fact that Warzone received its last major content update recently and the scope of updates might be limited to bug fixes and server maintenance only.

How long will Warzone be supported after Warzone 2.0 releases?

Activision Blizzard revealed that Warzone will continue to get support but that might be restricted to bug fixes and other minor updates. Currently, we received the Last Stand event and there are rotating game modes that will be available until 20th October. Buy Back Solos, Battle Royale Solos, and other modes are available for one last time and it is evident that Activision wants players to move to Warzone 2.0 once it arrives in November.

Even if you move to Warzone 2.0, you will still be able to hop back into the legacy version of Warzone. Journalist Tom Henderson revealed that the current version of Warzone will be renamed to Warzone Caldera after its sequel releases but there are also references to “Warzone Legacy” within the game files which could be an alternate name.

There are two reasons that may cause players to continue playing the current iteration of Warzone. The first is that Rebirth Island and Fortune’s Keep are being removed after the release of Warzone 2.0 and if you enjoy either of the two maps, you will be able to hop back in and play them.

The other reason for sticking to the original Warzone is if you cannot run Warzone 2.0 optimally. With the game set to receive some graphical upgrades, the game might become more graphically intensive and bump up the minimum system requirements. Since the game is not out yet, we don’t know what the difference in performance will be like on older systems, but if you are using an older PC you might need to upgrade or stick to the current iteration of Warzone for now.
