It looks as though Warzone & Black Ops Cold War Season 5’s update has been delayed at the last moment!
Call of Duty fans only have a short time to wait until the start of the next Warzone and Cold War season. However, it’s looking like that time may have already been extended.
Initially, the major update was intended to go live on Thursday, August 12. Now, it looks like that is no longer the case in most of the world.
Right now, fans are discussing whether or not Warzone is dying before Season 5. Perhaps Activision is holding back on a new major update to make sure the game is fully ready to pull back gamers to the popular FPS title.
After all, a lot of players are quitting Warzone due to cheaters right now. And the fans that remain are calling Warzone a nightmare for casual players.
Even NICKMERCS is quitting Warzone to play Apex Legends instead!
Black Ops Cold War & Warzone Season 5 Delayed?
From what we can tell, Black Ops Cold War & Warzone Season 5 is being delayed by 24 hours.
According to the Season 4 Battle Pass timer, there’s still a little extra time to enjoy the most recent update. In past social media posts, we’ve always been told that the update will drop on August 12 – however that no longer appears to be the case.
Even the official Call of Duty website is changing its tune, displaying the official release date as ‘this week’ instead of August 12.
But if we’re going off the Battle Pass timer, the new release date will now be 24 hours later than anticipated.
If this proves correct, Black Ops Cold War & Warzone Season 5 will release on August 12, 9 PM PT / August 13, 12 AM ET.
We’re yet to get any official confirmation from Activision about the new delay, but we’ll be sure to update this article if that changes.
In the meantime, check out what’s coming in the next Call of Duty major update:
