The fourth season of Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare launches tonight. The recently delayed Season 4 will now begin on June 10 at 11 p.m. PT / June 11 at 2 a.m. ET. Season 4 welcomes back Modern Warfare’s lead protagonist, and fan-favorite Captain Price as the fourth season’s operator.
Simon “Ghost” Riley debuted as Season 2’s operator, and the most recent third season welcomed back Alex.
A recent Twitter post from Call Of Duty read, “The story is far from over.” A teaser trailer revealed the return of his character back in May. Toward the end of the teaser, Sergeant ‘Gaz’ Garrick, also from the rebooted Modern Warfare campaign, makes a short appearance.
This story is far from over.

The season was initially delayed due to the tragic death of George Floyd, and the subsequent Black Lives Matter protests that followed. As a result, the release date of June 3 was scrapped.
In the wake of the protests against police brutality and violence, the developers further added new splash screens to Call Of Duty: Warzone and Modern Warfare.
The game’s splash and loading menus became black screens. Beneath the title, “Black Lives Matter,” the message read:
“The systemic inequalities our community experiences are once again center stage. Call of Duty and Infinity Ward stand for equality and inclusion. We stand against the racism and injustice our Black community endures. Until change happens and Black Lives Matter, we will never truly be the community we strive to be.”
Recently, alleged pre-alpha footage from the forthcoming Call Of Duty 2020 game, as many are now calling Call Of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, appeared to have been leaked online.
Since it was posted, the footage has been since taken down due to copyright, which arguably could mean it was footage the developers did not want us to see.
