Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare, Warzone Season 4 Delayed Due To Racial Justice Protests
Activision has announced that now is "not the time" for new seasons across its Call of Duty game series.
Activision has pushed back the launches of two major seasonal updates for the Call of Duty series. Season 4 of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and Warzone and Season 7 of Call of Duty: Mobile have been delayed in the wake of the murder of George Floyd and the subsequent protests that have taken placed in the United States. In a brief statement on Twitter, the official Call of Duty Twitter account announced that the start of new seasons across these three Call of Duty games has been pushed back.
These seasons, originally planned for June 3, will now debut at a later date. A new start date has not yet been confirmed. Some companies that previously delayed events like Sony and EA have since set new dates.
"Right now it's time for those speaking up for equality, justice, and change to be seen and heard," the tweet reads. "We stand alongside you."
Call of Duty publisher Activision is one of several companies that has released a public statement about the Black Lives Matter movement. If you want to take personal, material action, BET has a list of charities worth supporting.
GameSpot's summer gaming show, Play For All, started on June 1 and will run the weeks to come. The show was built on bringing the gaming community together and leveraging our passion and solidarity to benefit those in need. It feels right that we should extend our fundraising efforts to include those fighting against the systemic injustices faced by black people in America, along with supporting Direct Relief's COVID-19 efforts aiding front-line medical workers.
We'll be using our platform to raise money for both Direct Relief and Black Lives Matter. We want to be clear: Black Lives Matter; Black Culture Matters; Black Communities Matter.
