Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and Warzone Season 4 is expected to arrive imminently, with the initial launch date having been and gone, so let’s take a look at when it is kicking off and what’s coming in the next season.

Players are already looking ahead to what’s to come in the next season, following Season 3 which was packed with new content updates for fans to enjoy.

Following some new teasers shared by Infinity Ward, the next chapter of Modern Warfare and Warzone looks set to carry on the momentum of the popular title. Here is everything we know about Season 4.

Update – Modern Warfare Season 4 delayed

On June 1, a day before S4 was expected to launch, Activision and Infinity Ward announced that the release date would be delayed indefinitely. In addition, Season 7 of Call of Duty: Mobile was also postponed to “later dates.”

Little over a week later, Infinity Ward confirmed that Modern Warfare Season 4 will be arriving on Wednesday, June 10 at 11pm PDT (June 11, 1am EDT / 7am BST).

Warzone in Season 4

Activision
The duos mode in Warzone arrived during Season 3.

Warzone was first introduced during Modern Warfare Season 2, a 150-player battle royale title that has quickly taken off and become a mainstay for some of the top streamers.

Throughout Season 3, there have been many new playlists variations added to Warzone, such as the introduction of Quads, Stimulus Solos, and much more, allowing players to experience the game in a mode that best suits them. However, despite backlash from the community, Duos has still not been added, leading many to believe that Season 4 could introduce the long-awaited mode.

Shortly after Season 3 launched, major map changes started being teased in Warzone, with new underground bunkers that players can explore and howling wolves which can be heard all around Verdansk – could it be that S4 will see a big collection of map changes to keep the game fresh?

It has also been suggested that Warzone could be played on a completely new map for Season 4, with leaks claiming that players could be dropping into an arena in ‘Urzikstan’ after this season’s end.

It’s unclear what exactly will be introduced to Warzone in Modern Warfare Season 4 but players have called for a number of changes and fixes to come to the game – what is actually implemented, though, is another story.

New maps, weapons and Battle Pass

CoD 4’s Backlot was redesigned for Modern Warfare Season 3.

While there has not been any new details released on fresh maps and weapons coming to Modern Warfare, there have been leaks hinting at the return of two classic CoD weapons, the Vector and the Galil in Season 4.

However, Infinity Ward has not confirmed any of the leaks or given any clues as to what players can expect or how the new Battle Pass will look, but this page will be updated with all new information as and when it’s available.

It’s unlikely that players have to wait much longer for Season 4, with the initial launch date having passed already and Season 3 as good as finished, but make sure you check back for any updates on Modern Warfare and Warzone.

Iconic Call of Duty Raid map spotted in Black Ops Cold War files

Eight years after its introduction in the Call of Duty franchise, Black Ops 2’s Raid could finally be returning in a mainline entry as files for the iconic map have been uncovered in Black Ops Cold War.

Treyarch’s fan-favorite Black Ops 2 released in 2012. Since then, we’ve seen eight new titles come and go. In that gap, Raid has only made one other appearance in a global title, that title being Call of Duty Mobile.

While other maps have been rereleased countless times, including seven remakes of Nuketown alone, Raid has been left in the past. However, that’s about to change according to the latest leaks.

After an extended period in the shadows, Raid could finally be thrown back into the spotlight soon. Dataminers have uncovered a line of code relating to the map in Black Ops Cold War, suggesting that we’ll see it return in Season 1.

As a huge influx of Season 1 content slipped through the cracks on December 1, one key line stood out from the pack. ‘S1_map_raid_tu_cairo’ was plucked directly from the latest version of Black Ops Cold War.

Obviously, this doesn’t outright confirm Raid is a guarantee for the next Season. This is the first official reference to the map in quite some time, though, so it’s safe to assume Treyarch has been working to bring it back to life.

Raid might finally be back in a mainline CoD title for the first time since 2012.

The original map quickly became a favorite for its unique design. There were distinct sections that paved the way for vast combat opportunities. Both close-range and long-range loadouts could feel right at home on Raid. On one side you had a wide-open area with a high ground advantage for one team next to a  

On the other, you had a circular area perfect for flanking opportunities. Meanwhile, in the middle lane, you’d often catch snipers peeking across from either side in a near-symmetrical layout.

One of the more interesting tidbits from this datamine is the final word. Cairo is the capital of Egypt. The original version of Raid was set in Los Angeles. So when we see this new version, it could have a fresh coat of paint to fit the locale.

Expect to see snipers hanging out across the basketball courts if Raid drops with Season One in Cold War.

It was an extremely popular competitive map throughout the year of its initial release. Given it worked quite well with essentially all objective-based game modes. From Hardpoint to Search and Destroy, Raid was often a favored pick.

Season One of Black Ops Cold War kicks off on December 10. There’s no confirmation we’ll see Raid in-game from this point on, so do take this leak with a grain of salt until then.
