Season 4 of Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare and Warzone were originally scheduled for launch on June 3, with Season 7 of Call Of Duty: Mobile set for later this week. No new dates for the games have been announced.

The new season of Modern Warfare heavily emphasised the return of series fan-favourite Captain Price as an operator to the popular multiplayer game. Although others details about the season have been kept under wraps, new modes, maps and weapons were expected.

This news comes after Sony recently postponed their PlayStation 5 games event, which was scheduled for June 4, due to the ongoing protests. Madden NFL 21 was also going to receive a reveal event on June 1, but was postponed for the same reason.
