Modern Warfare 2 Season 2 release date speculation

Everything we know so far about Modern Warfare 2 Season 2, including an estimate on when we expect the release date to be and what the season could contain

Modern Warfare 2 Season 2 release date: three soldiers sit side by side as they wait to enter the warzone

Want to know when the Modern Warfare 2 Season 2 release date is? It’s a bit soon for any concrete announcements of the second season of the multiplayer game, especially since the Modern Warfare 2 Season 1 release date hasn’t finished. However, if we look at Call of Duty games, we can get a good idea of when the start of Season 2 might be.

Historically, Call of Duty seasons last between nine and 11 weeks, so it stands to reason that they’ll follow a similar time frame. However, this time, Season 1 starts over a month earlier, likely linked to the fact that Modern Warfare 2 came out in late October. Therefore, with the first season’s mid-November release date, we can estimate that Season 2 will begin a month earlier too.

Modern Warfare 2 Season 2 should release on or after 1 February 2023, as that is when the battle pass for Season 1 ends. 

Modern Warfare 2 Season 2 leaks

Even though the release of Modern Warfare 2 Season 2 isn’t for a while, there have been several leaks about what we can expect when the new season does drop. While it’s worth taking all of this information with a grain of salt, all of the images posted to Twitter have been met with takedown notices from Activision, potentially lending them some extra weight.

Three images were leaked, allegedly from the upcoming season of Modern Warfare 2, all of which hint at a Japanese theme for the update. The first image shows the Castle map, last seen in Call of Duty Vanguard, and the second shows an operator wielding a katana. The last, and perhaps most interesting image, shows a smaller island map, hinting that resurgence game modes will be returning early next year.

When the Modern Warfare 2 Season 2 release date finally rolls around, chances are that it will follow the trend from previous FPS games in the series by including new Modern Warfare 2 maps and the Season 2 battle pass. These passes also include new operators and Modern Warfare 2 guns, which require weapon blueprints to unlock. There’s also the potential for Infinity Ward to add new Modern Warfare 2 Spec Ops missions for those who prefer to work with friends to take down AI opponents.
