Warzone Pacific & Vanguard Season 2 Delayed as Developers Prioritize Fixes

Activision Blizzard has announced that Warzone Pacific and Vanguard Season 2 will be delayed for two weeks. The update will now arrive on February 14.

The franchise has certainly seen better days. Few are happy with the WW2-era Vanguard and Warzone Pacific has faced stinging criticism for its bugs, weapon balance, and poor performance — especially on the Xbox family of consoles.

So, there can be at least some comfort in the fact the developers are hearing the community loud and clear, announcing on January 19 that the much-anticipated update is being delayed two weeks to “fix game stability and bugs, and to ensure an overall level of polish”.

The developers also thanked players for their “patience” and promised to be more communicative in the future regarding issues and potential fixes.

Going forward, you can expect to hear from us more often regarding Call of Duty’s state of play. Studios remain focused on continuously improving your game experience, and we greatly value our community feedback. More frequent and detailed communication updates will be posted here and across Call of Duty social channels.

Call of Duty: Vanguard and Warzone Pacific are not the only games they are seeking to improve. Black Ops Cold War and Modern Warfare were also explicitly mentioned.

Warzone Pacific & Vanguard Season 2 Delayed – When Will It Now Come out?

Originally scheduled for February 2, both Warzone Pacific and Vanguard Season 2 will now drop on Monday, February 14.

Usually, a new season includes a raft of new content for the titles including a new Battle Pass, Prestige Levels and Rewards and weapons.

It makes sense that the developers are seeking to slow the implementation of new weapons. The integration of the latest COD titles weapons into Warzone has always been problematic and Vanguard was no different, with many of the weapons arriving with a bloom mechanic.

Despite the developers toning it down, many players still feel dissatisfied with the way certain weapons are performing and the developers have now made clear in the announcement today that they hope to remedy that.

Interestingly this announcement comes just a day after Microsoft shocked the gaming world by announcing the acquisition of Activision Blizzard, with many wondering what it means long-term for the Call of Duty franchise.
