A new Call of Duty Modern Warfare Season 4 update is in the works but developers Infinity Ward has yet to confirm when they plan to release it.
The original date was set for June 3, 2020, across all platforms, with new weapons and a Battle Pass expected.
There have been rumours that Season 4 could also include some significant changes for the Verdansk map, none of which have been confirmed by Activision.
But having announced its plans to launch Season 4 of Modern Warfare during June, there has been no news regarding what the new date will be.
The most recent statement from Infinity Ward reads: “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.”
But while there has been no concrete news on when Call of Duty Modern Warfare Season 4 will begin, a new leak suggests it’s being scheduled for this week.
It should be noted that this information comes from data miners and has not been confirmed yet by Activision or Infinity Ward.
The news shared through Modern Warzone suggests that Call of Duty Modern Warfare and COD Warzone Season 4 will be released late Pacific time on June 9.
This would mean that the new Warzone update will be available to download and install at around 7am GMT, on June 10, in the UK.
This is the same pattern used by developers Infinity Ward for previous patch releases and would be going live at a quieter time, to help with server strain.
However, until Activision shares its official plans, this remains speculation and should be taken with a grain of salt.
While things may have been updated in the Call of Duty game files, that doesn’t mean Activision won’t choose to change things again.
Fans believe that when Season 4 does arrive, some areas of the map might be altered dramatically on PS4, Xbox One and PC.
This could include The Dam being destroyed, affecting other areas of the Verdansk map, with data miners reporting finding new sound files of ice cracking, among other things.
A range of new weapons, skins and maps are also expected to arrive as part of the Modern Warfare bundle.
This will reportedly include new melee weapons, although it’s unclear if these will come to both Modern Warfare and Warzone.
