For those waiting for the new season of “Modern Warfare,” you’ll have to wait a bit longer.
Originally supposed to drop into Verdansk and all platforms on Wednesday, June 3, the latest season with the newest updates to “Modern Warfare” and “Warzone” have been delayed inefinitely amidst the civil unrest in the United States and around the globe.
The “Call of Duty” brand Twitterhandle released a statement on June 2 explaining the decision:
The statement in its entirety:
“While we all look forward to playing the new seasons of Modern Warfare, Warzoneand Call of Duty: Mobile, now is not the time,” the statement reads. “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 with you.”
The duos game mode was reintroduced to the the wildly popular “Warzone” in late May, and per usual, the developers were planning to release more content in its newest season, by way of maps, weapons and updates to “Modern Warfare” multiplayer and the free-to-play “Warzone.”
Among the changes, Infinity Ward was planning to introduce ever-popular “Call of Duty” character John Price as a playable character for its online modes.

Activision has yet to release a new release date for the delayed season.
