COD: Warzone players speculated what the 1.29 update would bring and were very surprised when it arrived.

It was assumed that this COD: Warzone update would start the transition to Black Ops Cold War. The new COD comes out very soon and will have its weapons available in the battle royale on launch day.

Instead of that being a known part of the patch, this COD: Warzone update seems completely out of left field. Still, it is guaranteed to be a popular patch. On top of playlist updates and general fixes, COD: Warzone now has private match lobbies.

COD: Warzone players to have the option of taking part in private matches

There are three modes available in what Infinity Ward is calling the beta version of COD: Warzone private matches. It has a normal BR mode that requires 50 players to start. There is a mini BR mode that only requires 24 players to begin. Lastly, a 30 player requirement is in place for the Plunder mode. Each of these have squad variations available.

While this might not be a huge deal for the average COD: Warzone player, it would come as a fantastic boost to the future of COD: Warzone esports. With teams like 100T going all in on Warzone esports, this is a welcomed surprise. Esports competitions can now pit players against each other, rather than determine contests in different lobbies.
