Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Season 2 release date delayed - but hey, there’s a crossbow

Infinity Ward says it's extending Season One - which is a weird way of announcing a delay

The start of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Season Two is coming, but it’s coming a bit later than you probably thought. Infinity Ward says it’s making a special “one-time extension of Season One,” and that means the current content now ends on February 11. If you want a less generous reading of that extension, it also means that Season Two is delayed a bit from when we expected.

Season One will soon add a new crossbow – which was leaked last year – to the list of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare weapons, and “a host of new items and challenges.” Infinity Ward says on the official site “to make room for all that activity, we are making a one-time extension of Season One – it’s now ending on February 11. During that time, there will be 2XP, 2X Weapon XP, and 2X Tier Progression to help you finish up your Officer Ranks and Tiers, and get you ready for an exciting Season Two.”

Strictly speaking, we never got official confirmation that Season Two would begin as soon as Season One ended – there could be some downtime in between.

So yes, I am being slightly premature in calling this a delay for the new content, but come on, it’s super weird that this is being framed as an “extended” Season One.
