Season 4 of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare was meant to be launching tomorrow on Wednesday, June 3. After nationwide protests against police brutality and racial injustice over the past weekend and into this week, Activision has decided to postpone the launch of the next seasonal event.
You can see the statement from the official Call of Duty Twitter account just below. Activision and Infinity Ward have decided to delay not only Season 4 launching in Modern Warfare, but also Season 7 launching in Call of Duty Mobile, which was also set to go live later this week for all players.
It's the right thing to do. Although there are likely hundreds of people at Infinity Ward working through tough times right now to get Season 4 off the ground, one of the biggest video games on the planet ducking out of the news cycle to allow others to speak up is a good thing.
This follows hot on the heels of Sony delaying their big PlayStation 5 showcase set for later this week on Thursday. The company was going to lift the lid on the next-gen console's games for the first time, and haven't announced a later date for the showcase at the time of writing.
Currently there's no revised release date for Season 4 in Modern Warfare. When Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Season 4 does launch though, it'll likely be featuring Captain Price debuting in the multiplayer side of the game as an Operator.
