There have been many times throughout the last year or two where players have logged onto Warzone with their buddy and found that Duos has been removed from the playlist rotation for battle royale, forcing them to either play some rather unfavoured Resurgence maps or fill in Trios with a random.

Neither of which is much fun. Neither is the reason that they logged on. And it's a common theme of playlist roulette, hoping that you can actually play what you want to. Now, Raven Software has lifted the lid as to why playlists change and which get rostered each week.

After revealing that game modes like BR Preview, Mini Royale, and Horde Hunt will be available this week, Raven Software has continued to explain why some maps and modes have been removed, such as anything on Ashika Island.

"As a reminder, playlist curation isn't an exact science," Raven Software began in a post on Twitter. "As a team, we review a wealth of internal data, alongside social sentiment and engagement to make decisions.

"Our goal is to always appeal to the widest group of players possible across the entire season so that there is something for everyone to play."

With the LTM Horde Hunt ending soon, Raven Software has now confirmed that two more standard game modes are making their way back by popular demand.

"Plunder and Lockdown will both also be making an appearance during the season," the devs added in the social media statement. So, it seems like your favourite mode might not be universally popular, and it's by demand that others have been chosen instead.
