What happened to 'Call of Duty Warzone' Rumble and is it coming back?

To understand where Rumble went, first you need to remember that Warzone has a variety of different playlists with each week that passes. This ensures there are plenty of different things to do for all types of players. Unfortunately, that means you may fall in love with a game mode that isn't meant to be permanent. It's got to go to make room for others, and it looks like this time that might be what happened to Rumble. It was simply time for the game to move on to something new and different.

Warzone Rumble was simply removed from the game to make way for another mode. Instead, it was replaced with the 200-player Warzone mode, which lets more players into the game compared to Rumble's 50v50 option. Unfortunately, there's no indication whether you'll be seeing the old mode making a return anytime soon. It will depend on whether the mode comes back up again in the roulette that developers occasionally experiment with. Sometimes you get lucky!
