Call of Duty developers are officially delaying the start of Vanguard and Warzone Season 2. In an announcement made on January 19, CoD Studios explained the reason for the delay along with its new release date.
The Call of Duty landscape is more volatile than ever. Cheaters are back in full force, console players are angry, and a number of Warzone quality testers are still on strike, with no response from executives.
Today, these are also changing, with the announcement of the takeover of Activision Blizzard by Microsoft.
It is therefore not surprising to learn that the release date for Season 2 of Vanguard and Warzone has been postponed. In an announcement on January 19, the CoD developers explained the reason for the postponement and the new schedule.
