In a highlight clip, mixer streamer Shroud talks about Call of Duty: Warzone and why he is likely to leave the game behind after just two weeks.
Call of Duty: Warzone, the Battle Royale offshoot of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, has been going through the roof since the release. Streamer and Battle Royale veteran Shroud wants to leave the game behind soon after two weeks, but not because he basically doesn't like it.
In fact, Shroud even praised Warzone and the developers for the good job at a Battle Royale with the dimensions (map and number of players) of Warzone. There is even a video titled on his YouTube channel "The Best COD Yet".
In a highlight clip, Shroud explains that he has no problems with Warzone itself, but rather with the Call of Duty series as a whole. For him, call of duty titles always have a limited lifespan because the gameplay hardly evolves and relies little on innovation. Compared to PUBG, Warzone is lagging behind because PUBG was the first game of its kind and therefore still has a larger player base, Shroud said.

Shroud tells in the clip mentioned that he plays every call of duty for a good two weeks and then let it rest again. It's not even the lack of new ideas in Warzone, but the core gameplay of Call of Duty. The Battle Royale market now offers a variety of good and bad games and new titles need something special to stay relevant in the long term.
However, CoD: Warzone is currently breaking all records, which is also related to the Call of Duty brand itself, Warzone's Free2Play model, and people trapped at home due to the spread of the coronavirus.
Warzone's features are different from other Battle Royale games in terms of perks, killstreaks, buyable loadouts, and the gulag battles for a second chance to join the battle – how you rate them is another matter.
Shroud is peacefully separating from Warzone (for now) and everyone else should continue to enjoy the game. In any case, the players are not lacking in creativity.
