Activision has delayed Season 2 of Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 and Warzone 2. Fans were supposed to get access to the next season on February 1, but now it looks like we won’t see it until February 15.
Activision has detailed the reason for the short delay to Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 at Share on Twitter (Opens in a new tab). “Our studio teams have made several changes based on what we’ve heard from our player community,” Activision said.
While another two weeks may seem like a long time to wait, Activision has provided details on a slew of new content coming in Season 2 for Warzone 2 and Modern Warfare 2.
Give me swag
Many new updates and content will be coming with Season 2 of Call of Duty’s free-to-play battle royale game, Warzone. This includes the return of Resurrection Mode with a smaller map and updates to the Gulag, loot, and gear.
As a fan of resurfacing, this is great news. The mode offered a very fast-paced alternative to the traditional Warzone battle royale. In Resurgence, as long as one of your team members is still alive, you can then return to the map after a short countdown. Set on a smaller map as well, it means there’s a lot more instantaneous action than Warzone’s less populous and hard-to-replay mode.
In connection with Modern Warfare 2 Season 2 updates, Activision announced the return of ranked play along with new maps, modes, and weapons. That’s not much to blast right now, but Activision has stated that more information will be available soon.
Since its launch last year, a common complaint I’ve seen about Modern Warfare 2 and Warzone 2 has been a lack of content, with very few maps, modes, and weapons to be interesting. So it’s nice to see that Activision has been listening to the community.
However, I will be judging Warzone Season 2 so I can actually play it. I have been despised many times by developers who promise additional content. The jokes are on me after Blizzard threw a half-baked seasonal event in spite of all my enthusiasm.
I can’t help but think of the worst case scenario. What if Activision decided to make The Flash shine brighter than the sun itself, or perhaps it would throw caution to the wind and let its riot shield deflect all the bullets from every direction? I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t one bit wary of all the promised updates.
I’ll likely play Warzone Season 2 and Modern Warfare 2. But I’d be a cautious optimist until I can safely say that Activision didn’t add anything crazy or do something heartbreaking like take my favorite map off shipment.
