When is the release date of XDefiant Ranked Play?

June 4, 2024 by No Comments

It’s been confirmed for a while that XDefiant will eventually get ranked play, but when exactly is the release date?

According to the developers, ranked play is expected to launch in a “future season,” which doesn’t give us much information on exactly when. The first season of XDefiant, set to add three new maps and three new weapons, will launch on July 2, 2024, with each subsequent season launching three months later.

However, there is a glimmer of hope for those waiting to play XDefiant Ranked Play. The game already has a ranked trial run available, indicating that the mod will be released sooner rather than later.

Ranked Trial Run currently sees players battling it out in 4v4; However, XDefiant lead Mark Rubin previously suggested that it could be increased to 5v5 based on feedback.

As the name suggests, ranked play is a matchmaking system in which teams of similar skill are matched against each other. This is in contrast to the randomness of XDefiant’s public matchmaking. It is currently unclear what gamemodes and maps will be available for the mod, but since the game has some Call of Duty esports professionals on its development team, it is likely to be somewhat similar to Call of Duty. Dominate and Occupy are the most likely candidates for gamemodes, but maps will ultimately depend on what the studio feels is best.
