With Warzone 2.0 and Modern Warfare 2’s Season One Reloaded in the rearview mirror, fans are turning their attention forwards to what is to come. Here, we run through what Season Two will look like and when exactly it will launch.
Call of Duty: Warzone 2.0’s global launch coincided with Modern Warfare 2’s Season One, meaning both tremendously successful series started their first content season simultaneously.
That’s ultimately what we expected and, given how the past few CoD titles have aligned with the battle royale, how we expect the Modern Warfare 2 life-cycle to progress.
As such, we’re looking at when it will drop and what content will accompany it.
When will Season Two start?
Season Two of Modern Warfare 2 and Warzone 2 was set to go live on February 1. However, Activision have since announced that Season 2 is delayed by a fortnight, now releasing on February 15.
While the average season length is roughly two months, this means MW2 and WZ2’s first season will be roughly three months.
MW2 & Warzone 2 Season Two content
We’re finally in a position where we know a lot of the content that the update will yield.
Because of the newness of Al-Mazrah, we don’t expect a new battle royale map, but some tweaks to the environment seem a possibility.
Rumors have emerged that a Resurgence map is set to launch with the new season. It will be the first Resurgence environment in Warzone 2, bringing back the smaller and faster-paced mode that was so popular in the first Warzone. Activision quickly DMCA’d a leaked map image.
The new map will reportedly feature World at War’s Castle as a POI. The map itself has been rumored to return in Modern Warfare 2 multiplayer.
There’s a host of other changes confirmed. Gulags will return to 1v1s and ‘vomit’ looting will return, meaning loot will drop into the open when players are eliminated.
We also anticipate more cash and cheaper prices, with players complaining throughout Season 1 that money is too scarce and rewards too expensive. The devs have pledged to listen to community feedback and many of their confirmed changes have proved popular to this point.
That’s all there is to say for now. We’ll be sure to update this piece as and when more becomes clear.
