There is a lot of anticipation for the Season 5 of Call of Duty: Warzone And Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War which, however, could be postponed, according to the latest information regarding the validity period of the battle pass. In fact, as pointed out on Twitter by the ModernWarzone profile, the expiration date of the pass had an addition of 24 hours, which many have assumed as a clue for a reference.
The date of August 12 had been confirmed in a video and in a tweet, which also showed the arrival of a new operator and a new type of weapon, which, however, could be delayed. With this addition of 24 hours, we therefore pass from 6 am on Thursday 12 to 6 am on Friday 13, thus confirming even more a possible postponement of the release.
It is also interesting to note how this same new season was anticipated by some leaks that occurred online, which turned out to be true 2 days later through an official video, where the date of 12 August was expressly highlighted as the start of the new season. The addition of 24 hours within the battle pass is a very important clue, as it determines when a season ends and a new one begins.
At the moment no confirmations or denials have been disclosed regarding the reference, even if given the situation it is very likely that the announcement is only a matter of hours. Some online users also note that this reference could also be due to the fact that it is about to be announced Call of Duty: Vanguard, as also anticipated by some online rumors, and that the addition of 24 hours can be used to insert easter eggs within the free-to-play title and then present the new chapter.
It’s unclear yet whether Season 5 of #Warzone has been delayed after the battle pass bad 24 hours of time added to it earlier today.
We will update you if Activision or it’s studios decides to comment on the matter or clear things up.
