Many players are wondering if Call of Duty: Warzone 2 will feature skill-based matchmaking, a feature that has been present in both recent mainline Call of Duty titles and the original Warzone as well.

With the highly anticipated arrival of Warzone 2 on Nov. 16, many players are wondering if skill-based matchmaking will make another appearance. Skill-based matchmaking has been a highly controversial topic in the Call of Duty community as many players believe that it unfairly punishes players who did well in a game by filling their next game with higher leveled players.

While there has not been an official confirmation about the return of skill based matchmaking in Warzone 2 from Activision, chances are high that it will be implemented in Warzone 2 as it was a feature in the original Warzone.

While there is a small chance that Activision changed this between the two games, the fact that Modern Warfare 2, the game that Warzone 2 is connected to, has skill-based matchmaking shows that this will carry over to the newest Warzone.

Though this news will upset players against skill-based matchmaking in their Call of Duty games, nothing is set in stone. Players will have their answers when Warzone 2 is officially released on Nov. 16.
