Reminiscent of Cyberpunk 2077, the next-gen Call of Duty game has gotten a second delay. For roughly a week (six days to be exact), Season 1 of Black Ops Cold War and Season 7 of Warzone would have to wait. The long-awaited tie-up of the two games has been anticipated for a long time now along with it’s updated looks and modes.
Activision themselves confirmed the delay in a recent blog post, stating that “It’s an unprecedented amount of free content and the teams are currently prepping for the biggest Season One launch week ever seen.”
The promise from Infinity Ward, Treyarch Studios and Activision is as stated:
“Prepare for an incredible amount of free content in Black Ops Cold War, including new Multiplayer maps, new and fan-favorite 6v6 modes and playlists,the return of 2v2 Gunfight with four new maps, and a massive new Fireteam map. This offering includes a battle through a sprawling luxury complex within the Hollywood Hills of Los Angeles. That’s right: the legendary Call of Duty: Black Ops II 6v6 map known as Raid will be ready to play in Black Ops Cold War at Season One launch.
Make room on your Gunsmith table for free-to-acquire weapons and prepare for new Zombies modes, Season Challenges, and the full cross-title launch of the Seasonal Prestige system, with up to 1,000 Season Levels to progress through!
It’s an unprecedented amount of free content and the teams are currently prepping for the biggest Season One launch week ever seen. For this to occur, we’re taking a few more days to finalize everything before unleashing this massive drop of new, free content to the community.”
Thankfully enough, it doesn’t stop there. There are also some freebies underway to make up for the delays. Activision states:
