Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 is entering its second season, and while Activision hasn’t officially revealed the content of the update, the company did make a few announcements to stir up the excitement. Just as you would expect with live-service games, Call of Duty is built on a seasonal system, with the game receiving major content drops with each update.
Season 2 is gearing up for launch after a short delay, and for many fans it’s a make-or-break scenario as reception on Modern warfare 2 and War zone 2.0 has been mediocre so far.
With that in mind, here’s everything you need to know about the upcoming season of Modern warfare 2 and War zone 2.0.
Initially, Season 2 was set to launch on February 1, 2023 – at least according to the in-game battle pass countdown timer. But then, after player feedback and the pile of bugs in the game at launch, Activision decided to postpone the season to February 15, 2023.
The company announced this via Twitter.
To soften the bad news, Activision did share some information about what to expect from Season 2.
With each season, Call of Duty gets new weapons, multiplayer maps, operators, modes, and major gameplay changes. While no specific roadmap has been revealed, the company did confirm that a slew of new features are on the way.
A new confirmed mechanic is the return of 1v1 Gulags, which were featured in the original War zone. In War zone 2.0is the basic Gulag designed for 2v2, which players were not happy with.
Aside from that, several to leak point to the existence of new weapons, including a crossbow and the Vepr-12 shotgun. And apparently the classic Castle map would return, perhaps as part of the new small scale War zone 2.0 Resurgence mode.
Activision says it is listening to the community and implementing new features based on player feedback. We’ll update this article as more information about Season 2 becomes available.
