Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War and Warzone were on the verge of Season 5, but it has been pushed back by a full day.
Call of Duty Cold War has been shaping up for what will likely be its second-to-last season. With this year’s Call of Duty supposedly on the verge of its announcement, Cold War only has a few months left in the spotlight.
However, players raring to get started on their Season 5 Battle Pass have to wait a little longer. A couple of days ago battle passes were quietly extended by a full 24 hours. However, the official Call of Duty Twitter account finally made an announcement last night, confirming Season 5’s delay.
Just A Little Bit Longer
The battle pass was originally due to launch on August 11th, but will now launch today (August 12th). The update will kick off at 9 PM PT meaning UK players won’t get it until 5 AM on the 13th.
The new season brings five multiplayer maps, a new battle pass, new weapons, a new mode, and a ton of new content for Zombies.
Some had hoped that the update would bring some sort of solution to the ongoing hacking issues in Warzone. However, Raven Software, the development team behind Warzone, did give an update on player bans. More than 50,000 accounts were banned in Warzone just yesterday. While there we no details in anti-hack codes, Raven Software did state that they were working behind the scenes.
There was no official word on why the season was delayed. However, with so many elements being added to the game, in all likeliness, the fault lies in a technical issue.
PlayStation players have been able to pre-load the update, which arrives at around 20GB. You’ll be able to launch yourself into a whole load of new Call of Duty content when Season 5 launches later tonight.
