Activision has made the decision to delay the launch of Call of Duty: Vanguard and Warzone Season 2. The new season is now planned to arrive on Monday, February 14th–Valentine’s Day of all days–with its previous date slate to be February 2nd.
Activision stated in a blog post that it’s taking additional development time to deliver more updates to call of Duty: Vanguard, Warzone Pacific, Black Ops Cold War and Modern Warfare (2019), in hopes to bring these titles to a better state.
“We feel your frustrations and hear you loud and clear,” Activision said. “To date, we’ve deployed a number of updates, but more needs to be done. Upcoming implementations will address several concerns raised by the community and other quality-of-life improvements. Adjusting the core gameplay loop, mechanics, and balance is a continuing and important focus. Fixes will apply to your platform of choice–two generations of consoles and PC–as well as gameplay in general across all five systems.”
This blog post also saw Activision promising to communicate better with the Call of Duty community. Players should expect regular updates from the developers. “Studios remain focused on continuously improving your game experience, and we greatly value our community feedback,” Activision said.
Right now, Activision is being purchased by Microsoft, with the deal expecting to go through by very end of this year. However, it is known that Call of Duty continue to release on the PlayStation platform, as Phil Spencer recently confirmed.
