Call of Duty: New Date For Modern Warfare and Warzone Season 4 Announced

Published 06/10/2020, 2:06 PM EDT


Last week, Infinity Ward delayed the launch of Season 4 for Call of Duty Modern Warfare and Warzone, initially planned for June 3. The unfortunate death of George Floyd sparked a wave of protests in the United States and beyond, demanding police reforms and racial justice. Subsequently, several game developers and companies postponed significant in-game updates and events, including Infinity Ward.

Moreover, the Call of Duty developer announced a list of stringent measures, vowing to crack down on racist content in the game. Additionally, they also added an in-game splash screen outlining their message of commitment to the Black Lives Matter movement. Amidst all this, leaks surfaced for Season 4, suggesting a new launch date.

A Twitter user was able to access data-mined information and pointed out the early hours of June 10 (UTC) as the probable time frame. However, neither the developer nor the publisher gave their official word for the new release date.

Infinity Ward announce a new date for Call of Duty Modern Warfare Season 4

The developer posted the information on their official Twitter handle. As a result, the Season 4 update kicks off tonight, June 10 at 11 pm PDT. Fans are thrilled about the new content they will experience.

Meanwhile, Senior Communications Manager at Infinity Ward, Ashton Williams, provided additional intel about the incoming update. “In order to reduce the overall disc space that MW and WZ take up, we’re compressing a bunch of assets,” she wrote. As a result, the new content will require 4GB of memory for consoles after installation.

This is good news for console players who worry about running out of space as the updates keep getting chunkier. She also stated the team is working to optimize the size for future patch updates and has a tip for console players to free up space. “If helpful, one reminder for console players, you can uninstall the content packs for modes that you’re not playing if you want to free up space.”
