Will my skins transfer to Warzone 2.0?

It's been an exciting week for Call of Duty fans as not only has Modern Warfare II been officially revealed, but also a "wholly new," "state-of-the-art experience" dubbed as Warzone 2.0.

As such, it's perhaps no surprise that players are wondering whether or not their years' worth collecting cosmetics will be recognized in the new game. Here's a breakdown of whether or not skins from Modern Warfare (2019), Black Ops Cold War and Vanguard will transfer over to Call of Duty: Warzone 2.0.

Along with its world reveal for MW2, Activision confirmed on June 8 that inventories and player progression will reset for Warzone 2.0. All cosmetics from Modern Warfare (2019), Black Ops Cold War and Vanguard will not transfer over for use in the new battle royale.

"In order to fully deliver this state-of-the-art experience," Activision's developer blog post reads, "Warzone 2.0 will feature new Modern Warfare II content and systems with brand-new progression and inventories."

The original Warzone title and its servers will still remain live for the foreseeable future, meaning players' items and progression will still be there, but they will not crossover into the new Warzone experience in any way.

"Today’s Warzone will continue as a separate experience that will include a continuation of player progression and inventories within that Warzone experience," Activision said. "We can’t wait to share more details soon."

Ultimately, it will be interesting to see how Activision handles this process moving forward.

With Blizzard transferring Overwatch skins to its sequel, it would raise quite the discussion if Activision were to not follow suit without some sort of community acknowledgment or compensation.
