Modern Warfare, Warzone, And Mobile Affected

The latest content drop seasons for all currently-running Call of Duty games have been postponed due to current events. That means you'll have to wait a little longer for the latest seasons of Modern WarfareWarzone, and Call of Duty: Mobile.

This news comes via the official Call of Duty Twitter account. A tweet posted to the account says that while gamers are looking forward to the new seasons of Call of Duty games, "now is not the time" to release them. The tweet goes on to say that it's time for "those speaking up for equality, justice and change to be seen and heard". Activision ends the tweet by stating that it "stands alongside" these folks. The tweet is referencing protests surrounding the killing of a black man, George Floyd, in police custody.

Activision and Call of Duty are the latest gaming companies to express solidarity with the protests currently occurring in the USA. The official Twitter account for EA's Madden NFL 20 tweeted a similar statement expressing a wish to effect change "against the unjust treatment and systemic bias that is plaguing the nation and our world". Madden NFL 21 was originally due to be unveiled yesterday, but EA postponed the event in light of world events. Similarly, a PlayStation 5 event was due to take place on June 4th, but Sony has delayed that event to express solidarity with protesters and "more important voices".

We're not yet sure when we'll get the new seasons for Modern WarfareWarzone, and Call of Duty: Mobile. Right now, the situation is fairly volatile with regards to unrest around the USA. It's likely that as that situation calms down, gaming studios and companies will slowly return to something approaching normality. Don't expect to see the new Call of Duty seasons for a while, though.

Dark Souls changed my life, and I'm here to spread the good news. I like pretty much all sorts of games, but I judge everything by its proximity to our Lord and saviour, Dark Souls.
