Call of Duty: Warzone has taken the gaming industry by storm over the past few weeks since its launch, bringing in a staggering 50 million players in just one month. Despite these achievements, the team behind the free-to-play battle royale game has no intention to be content. Speaking to VentureBeat, Infinity Ward‘s narrative director for the game Taylor Kurosaki says that there’s more in store for Warzone, especially with Fortnite-styled limited-time events that can change the entire experience.

“That’s exactly the kind of thing that we’re working on, that we have planned,” Kurosaki said in relation to these game-altering experiences. “It’s all going to fit into this macro that we’ve established in Modern Warfare, and that we’ve continued into Warzone. If you know who the players are in Modern Warfare, it’ll all make sense, and it’ll all feel appropriate to the universe.” If Call of Duty does learn from Fortnite, it could open up a world of opportunities. The latter title had previously changed up its map, introduced cross-over events with various movie characters, and even had a complete blackout for two whole days.

As to how new content will be rolled out, Kurosaki compares his vision for Warzone to episodic television series: “A lot of the time, when the showrunners of the Sopranos or Lost or something like that is setting out to tell a story, they’re not exactly sure how many seasons the show is going to be on the air,” says the narrative director. “We know where we’re going, and we know where we’re starting from. The question just remains, how long will it take us to get to our conclusion? That’s kind of up to our fans.”
