Warzone Season 4 Reloaded dropped at the end of July, so players of CoD’s battle royale are turning their attention to Season 5 and what is to come. Here, we run through when we expect the fifth season of the Vanguard life-cycle to begin and what should come when it does.

Warzone Season 4 Reloaded dropped on July 28, bringing with it the typical meta shake up and plenty of new content for fans to dig into. Among other things like the introduction of the Titanium Trials LTM, multiple ARs were nerfed so as to end the dominance of the NZ-41, which established itself as a comfortable favorite in the season’s early weeks.

Despite the relative freshness of Season 4 Reloaded, fans are already wondering what is to come with Season 5 and when to expect it. Here’s everything we know.

When is Warzone Season 5? Season 4 end date

As is the case every season, neither Activision nor Raven have confirmed a release date for Season 5 or an end date for the preceding Season 4.

However, we can reliably calculate one based off the length of the Season 4 Battle Pass. Currently, that is set to expire 24 August, meaning Season 5 should start on or just after that date.

The length of the season – roughly two months – is as expected and will ensure at least one more full season can take place before Modern Warfare II’s life-cycle begins.

A delay is possible, with past Warzone seasons pushed back slightly to allow devs to refine what is coming and maximize bug fixes. As of now, no delay is expected to Season 5.

Warzone Season 5 new content, leaks & rumors

Because Season 4 is still so fresh, there are next to no confirmed details of what we can expect in Season 5.

It is almost guaranteed to bring new weapons (at least a couple) and new multiplayer maps to Vanguard. Season 4, for example, brought CoD: WWII’s USS Texas map into the 2021 title. Those guns will then be added to Warzone.

Season 4 also brought us a new map, so we can expect something of a refresh to Caldera or Rebirth Island. Changes to Fortune’s Keep seem unlikely, as does the introduction of a new environment altogether.

Naturally, we’ll be the first to update you as and when Season 5 content comes into focus.
