North American Call of Duty pro team FaZe Clan have officially qualified for the CWL Pro League Stage 2 Playoffs.

FaZe are the fourth and final team from Division A to clinch a spot, joining Red Reserve, Echo Fox, and Team Kaliber.

After a shockingly bad start to the Stage 2, FaZe came into the sixth and final week of Stage 2 knowing that they would need to win all four of their matches to even have a chance at the postseason.

Although they managed to win their first three matches, their Playoff lives ended up being decided before they played their fourth match, thanks to Team EnVy defeating Evil Geniuses and eliminating them from contention.

Of course even if EG had not lost to EnVy, FaZe would have still had the chance to qualify with a win against Team Kaliber. FaZe owned the tiebreaker against EG thanks to a better head-to-head map count. 

However, they must have felt relieved in completing their ultimate comeback within the Division A standings and getting the chance to defend their Stage 1 crown.

The CWL Pro League features a total of 16 teams divided into Divisions A and B, with the 8 teams of each group playing each other twice.

While every team receives a base cash prize for participating, the top four teams of each Division qualify for the Playoffs, where a whopping $500,000 prize pool will be up for grabs.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is practically a household name for FPS fans and non-gamers alike. It’s no shock then that CoD fans were beyond excited at the possibility of a PS5 version of the game. 

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare has become a staple title for the CoD franchise. After a recent clarification from an Infinity Ward dev that more content is coming soon fans have jumped back aboard the Modern Warfare hype train.

This announcement had fans scratching their heads over what new content would be released, especially when Black Ops: Cold War and its Warzone season are likely to be the focus of development for some time.

A reddit user, however, has sparked some life into the community by leaking a possible PS5 release for Modern Warfare in the near future.

Modern Warfare is the game that birthed Call of Duty: Warzone, which has exploded into a fully fledged esport.

Modern Warfare on PS5 Leak

A post and possible leak on r/GamingLeaksAndRumours by reddit user asjonesy99 has seized the interest of CoD fans from across the globe.

The post sees the possibility of there being a PS5 version of the title available in the near future. When purchasing the game, the dropdown menu shows the original PS4 version followed by a PS5 version.

The original post states that when he selects this option it becomes locked. After checking a plethora of other games, there are no other options for PS5 versions, so either this is a simple error or CoD are planning a future PS5 update for the game.

While excited, a lot of fans weren’t particularly shocked at this leak simply due to the popularity of Warzone, which launched alongside Modern Warfare in October 2019 and is fully integrated into the game.

The future is of course uncertain, and in turn this means that this could be nothing. However, it’s really exciting to think that Modern Warfare will be back with a bang to continue to inspire future generations of FPS players in the same way it has inspired the current one.
