When is Call of Duty Warzone coming out then?

Warzone is coming out tomorrow – something Call of Duty fans have said just about every Monday for the past several weeks. March 3 was tipped by many to be the day Modern Warfare’s new battle royale released but, of course, that turned out to be false. So, when is Warzone actually coming?

Modern Warfare Season 2 brought an array of new additions to the game but perhaps most noticeable is what it excluded. The main menu of Modern Warfare was updated to include a ‘classified’ section which has been universally accepted as where the eventual battle royale mode will release.

It initially led fans to believe ‘Warzone’ would drop the day after on February 14. This was one of many disappointing days for those who are awaiting its release.

It’s getting to the point now where it seems silly to keep speculating on when Warzone will indeed release. That’s not stopping anyone else though, and it certainly won’t stop us trying to piece the seemingly impossible puzzle together.

March 3 had obviously been extra anticipated and outside a change of plans, this was wrong, too. However, there is a slight glimmer of hope for March 5.

That’s because Black Ops 4’s Blackout beta was released five days before version 1.0. That means we are assuming, which is a dangerous game when it comes to Warzone, that March 10 is the full release.

Modern Warfare’s battle royale is by no means guaranteed to keep the same schedule as what Treyarch did with Blackout, though. There may not even be a beta.

Regardless, that doesn’t rule out March 10 as the full release. It is expected a trailer will come beforehand and that many streamers/influencers will show off footage that they captured in a super secret meeting in Los Angeles back in February.

This also aligns with the schedule of the weekly challenges. In order to fit the four supposed Warzone challenges in before the end of Season 2, it would have to release on March 10.

Call of Duty and clown memes?

Those within the CoD community have even been poking fun at themselves. Call of Duty fans know that updates go live in Modern Warfare on a Tuesday so it’s understandable this day has been consistently earmarked as the potential Warzone release day.

Every Tuesday is the same – hype builds for a potential announcement/release and then nothing happens. This has resulted in many clown memes being posted from players poking fun at those (and themselves) who get excited every week.

Elsewhere, the Warzone marketing campaign, or lack thereof, has been mocked. Some would argue that Call of Duty’s silence is actually marketing genius. After all, the mode is still the hottest topic in CoD forums.

Just when battle royale players were hoping for an announcement, Call of Duty instead decided to reveal a new Tamagotchi, of all things. The description of the bundle even read: “Dinosaurs, fire-breathing dragons, and an evolving watch that will have you gaming the warzone.” It appears they’re even poking fun at their own silence.

All signs continue to point to March 10 but, at this point, we’ll just take it whenever we get it. Surely Activision and Infinity Ward can’t make us wait until Season 3?

Weird Warzone glitch forces players into hearing never-ending rock music

Warzone players have been rocking out to the game’s new vehicle music as they drive through the frozen fields of Verdansk. However, for some, these catchy tunes never end.

There’s no denying that Warzone Season 6 has had its fair share of problems. Aside from the train station teething problems and return of the ‘demon gun’ texture glitch, there have been some new additions to the seemingly ever-growing bugfix list.

So far, Activision has had to fix an overpowered bug that allowed the AS VAL to shoot through unlimited walls, a game-breaking unlimited Stim glitch, and now Modern Warfare fans are reporting a rock and roll related problem. 

While Warzone’s new music tracks certainly liven up your drive time commutes across Verdansk, they can also pose a risk to your game-winning plays. This is particularly true when the music in question doesn’t actually stop. The continuous blare of heavy rock certainly gets us pumped in games like DOOM, but it really doesn’t help in FPS titles like Warzone where you need to hear enemy footsteps.

What is the Warzone music glitch? 

The addition of playable vehicle music certainly isn’t a new feature in Warzone – in fact, players have been able to equip certain CoD related tracks since Season 5. However, music fans can now listen to their favorite tracks from the likes of DMX, Skrillex, Jack Harlow, and iconic themes from across the Call of Duty series. 

Unfortunately, these tunes have caused a rather interesting and mildly infuriating glitch. The bug seems to happen when you or any of your squadmates have any of the game’s War Tracks equipped and enter a vehicle. While this bug may not be that bad when listening to the game’s quieter tracks, things can get incredibly frustrating when the heavy metal Juggernaut theme plays on a loop.

You may be tempted to blow up your vehicle or drive it off the nearest cliff edge, but even this won’t stop the never-ending audio. Some players have reported that they still hear vehicle music, even when they have the audio option turned off in the game’s settings. “The rock music won’t stop, even after getting out of the vehicle. To top it off, my teammate and I had already turned the audio off before the game,” says one frustrated player

“After it just wouldn’t stop and we couldn’t hear A THING, we even destroyed the vehicle in hopes it would quiet down. Ultimately, we just disconnected when we couldn’t take it anymore.” Some Warzone players have even reported that they managed to get to the final ring with the same heavy rock track blaring down their earphones.

It seems the Juggernaut War Track is the most common offender.

Fortunately, some crafty players have discovered that you can fix this pesky audio issue by selecting the Black Ops music pack from the War Tracks menu. Meanwhile, if you encounter the problem mid-game, simply enter another vehicle in the hopes that it fixes the never-ending audio loop. 

There have even been reports that constantly getting in and out of the offending vehicle will eventually fix the issue. Of course, your experience may vary and some of these fixes may not work. Warzone Season 6 certainly seems to be off to a rocky start and it looks like we’ll just have to wait until Activision officially fixes this audio issue in a future patch.
