Warzone Pacific and CoD: Vanguard’s first season is well underway, and fans are casting their minds forwards to what could come when Season 2 begins. Here, we run through when that will be, the new content it will bring and more. 

The long-anticipated transition to Warzone Pacific finally came on December 8, transporting all battle royale players to a new sun-soaked island called Caldera.

While early reviews of the map are mixed at best – criticism in particular has focused on its speed and flow –  it appears as if it is here to stay for some time. Verdansk remained from March 2020 to December 2021.

However, we can expect changes to Caldera, most likely with the inception of new seasons. New content, whether weapons, vehicles, balancing changes, skins or cosmetics, also tend to drop with new seasons. As such, players want to know about Warzone Pacific and CoD: Vanguard Season 2.

When does Warzone Pacific and CoD: Vanguard Season One end?

There is rarely official confirmation of a new season’s start date until much nearer the time, but the preceding season’s battle pass often indicates when players can expect it to end. Following that logic, Season One’s battle pass is due to expire on 1 February, 2022.

We therefore expected Warzone Pacific Season 2 to start on or around February 2. However, the season has now been delayed by approximately two weeks.

A Status Report from Activision, released on January 19, confirmed that the new season would be delayed by just shy of a fortnight so as to allow the developers more time to fix the game’s most obvious issues.

As such, Warzone Pacific and Vanguard Season 2 will drop on February 14, barring any further delays.

The statement said: “We will use this additional development time to deliver updates, including optimizations to gameplay, game balancing (including weapon and equipment balancing), to fix game stability and bugs, and to ensure an overall level of polish.”

What can we expect in Warzone Pacific and CoD: Vanguard Season 2?

The prevalence of bugs and glitches in Warzone means we can expect plenty of fixes to accompany the Season 2 update. These will likely carry over to Vanguard as well, which has experienced more than its fair share of problems.

Leaks have now emerged, pointing towards a new shotgun, KG M/40 LMG and the Chauchat. There is also a new female operator and a new Alps map, thought be for the Ground War mode.

In terms of map changes, we might see minor adjustments to problem areas and a few POIs, but large-scale changes seem unlikely given the newness of Caldera.

We will, of course, update this piece closer to the time, when more details are available.
