As a result of nationwide protests against police violence, Infinity Ward and Activision have pushed back the release dates for Modern Warfare and Warzone Season 4, as well as the seventh season of Call Of Duty: Mobile.
The announcement was made via Call Of Duty’s official Twitter account, reading: “While we all look forward to playing the new seasons of Modern Warfare, Warzone, and Call of Duty: Mobile, now is not the time. “
“We are moving the launches of Modern Warfare Season 4 and Call of Duty: Mobile Season 7 to later dates. Right now, it’s time for those speaking up for equality, justice, and change to be seen and heard. We stand alongside you.”
The delay comes as a result of protests following the death of George Floyd in Minnesota. Yesterday, Sony decided to postpone the PS5 reveal event this Thursday. As they stated on Twitter, this would “allow more important voices to be heard.”

Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare Season 4 was due to begin tomorrow, June 3. As well as new maps, weapons, and content, fan-favorite Captain Price returns as the new season operator. On June 5, Call Of Duty: Mobile’s seventh season would have gone live, including a “radioactive agent” theme.
On May 29, Infinity Ward rolled out duos mode into Call Of Duty: Warzone, as a part of the game’s latest playlist update. The mode will be distributed across all platforms.
The other modes available include solos, trios, quads, and plunder quads. In a blog post from Activision, they described Duos as “quite possibly the ultimate test of friendship and teamwork.”
