The free-to-play standalone, Call of Duty: Warzone released yesterday and features up to 150 players fighting it out to be the last person/team standing. Now, Infinity Ward has confirmed that it will be upping the game's player count to a whopping 200 players.

Speaking in an interview with USA Today, Infinity Ward studio head, Patrick Kelly said that his team is already testing out a 200 player version of the game. "We brought a number of twists to battle royale. I do think the world you play in is going to be undeniably unique. For one thing, we are initially going to roll out with 150 players, when you are typically seeing 60 to 100. Actually, I can tell you we are already playing with 200 players. We are going to release that a little bit later."

Unfortunately, Kelly hasn't given away any specifics for when the player increase will happen.

Call of Duty: Warzone is available to play for free. It features two game modes including a 150 person Battle Royale and a mode called Plunder which is all about collecting the most cash. The map is enormous and features over 300 points of interest with each building being created individually. You can download the game at no cost even if you don't own Call of Duty: Modern Warfare. It will, however, take up around 80-100GB on your hard drive.
