Activision has announced that the fifth and final season of Call of Duty: Warzone will begin on August 24, implying that the release of Warzone 2 could be just around the corner.
Announced on the game’s website, the final season is called Last Stand and centers around a league of Call of Duty villains led by Black Ops 2’s Raul Menendez. Khaled Al-Asad from the original Modern Warfare also appears, alongside Gabriel T. Rorke from Ghosts and He “Seraph” Zhen-Zhen from Black Ops 3.
Call of Duty seasons – which take place simultaneously in Warzone and Vanguard – usually last about two to three months, meaning this final season of Warzone will likely end in November.
Black Ops: Cold War’s final season lasted about a month after Vanguard’s release, and since Modern Warfare 2 launches on October 28, this also aligns with a November end date for Warzone – and therefore presumably a Warzone 2 launch date.
Nothing has been confirmed, of course, but earlier this week there were rumors of a November release date. An official confirmation shouldn’t be too far off, though, as the Call of Duty: Next showcase will reveal new Warzone 2 information on September 15 alongside other games in “Call of Duty’s immediate future”.
Activision has said incredibly little about the Battle Royale sequel since it was announced in February, noting until April that Warzone 2 features “groundbreaking innovations” and will be fully unveiled sometime this year.
