Modern Warfare 2 Season 2Activision

Activision has now confirmed the rumors, announcing a delay for Modern Warfare 2 and Warzone 2 Season 2.

Warzone 2 is in the midst of a player count decline, and content creators have threatened to jump ship if conditions don’t improve.

Community members have particularly raised issues with the battle royale sequel’s new looting system, Gulag, and Loadout Drop prices. Only compounding concerns, a datamine on January 17 revealed a potential delay for MW2 and WZ2’s second season. It’s already been over two months since Season 1 began, and the player base’s patience is waning thin.

The development team confirmed the community’s worst fears by announcing a delay for Season 2 but reassured players by teasing major changes.
