Activision has announced that Season 1 for Call of Duty: Vanguard, as well as the launch of Warzone Pacific, has been delayed. Season 1 and Warzone Pacific will now release on December 8th (instead of December 1st), which just so happens to be the same day that Halo Infinite launches.
Everyone who own Vanguard will still get a 24-hour headstart to on Warzone’s new Caldera map. This delay means the Last Days of Verdansk event for Warzone has also been extended to December 8th. Those who don’t own Vanguard will be able to try out Caldera on December 9th.
Season 1 for Vanguard includes a bunch of new content, like maps and modes for multiplayer, alongside new Zombies content.
Warzone Pacific will be bringing massive changes to the battle royale title. It’s completely changing the map, taking players back to WWII on a nice sunny beach with all-new points of interest.
Activision did not give a reason for the delay, but it coincides with The Wall Street Journal’s publication of a report about Activision Blizzard CEO Bobby Kotick knowing about the sexual harassment–and covering it up. In response to this shocking news, hundreds of developers walked out in protest, with a large amount of employees calling for Kotick to resign.
A Call of Duty studio boss, Dan Bunting from Treyarch, left the studio following WSJ’s investigation into Activision Blizzard’s company culture.
