The technically-still-unannounced Fashionable Warfare 3 will most probably allow you to preserve your entire hard-earned loot from final 12 months’s Fashionable Warfare 2. The official Name of Responsibility account Tweeted a “ballot” the opposite day, asking gamers the next query:

“Sure,” and “Sure, when is reveal?” would not precisely strike me as a stirring instance of democracy, although contemplating a tone-deaf crossover with The Boys final week, it is fairly on model.

This looks like a course correction after Warzone 2 flat-out wiped its participant’s progress final 12 months, resulting in assertions from one gamer that Infinity Ward would possibly “by no means get better from this choice.” Clearly this darkish future by no means fairly manifested, although some stay sceptical as as to whether or not this implies the game’ll simply be overpriced DLC.

It needs to be talked about {that a} yearly launch schedule is regular for the collection, and cosmetics carrying over is not any indicator of anything concerning the game. After all, that will not cease individuals from speculating—and I can see why one would possibly take this as an indication the brand new entry will not have quite a bit for avid gamers to grind for.

A franchise with such a speedy launch schedule does appear to be the correct place to take this tactic now that live-service microtransactions are as frequent as air. I can not think about it is good to drop a payload of money on one game, solely to lose all of that gear within the subsequent.
