After Activision delayed the release of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and Warzone Season 4, the wait is finally over. Season 4 is here, officially going live at 11:00 p.m., on June 10. The update comes with bonuses, such as changes to Warzone, new battle pass, maps, and modes. 

According to Forbes, Call of Duty will come with a massive update. The file size will exceed 50 GB in its premium PC version. However, it comes with the benefit of having the Infinity Ward compressing a bunch of assets. It will mean that the smaller eventual file size comes with a bigger initial download. According to Forbes, this is smaller compared to the past. This is the outcome of the developers taking extra measures to control things, even to its minute detail. It is a part of the parcel of the games-as-service era. The games-as-service era is the state where constantly expanding games come with expanding file sizes as well. 

Expect incredible backstories and narratives with Warzone. The update will come with patch notes, maps, modes, and many more. Since its dominance in 2010, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare reigns supreme. After its release, it easily became the best-selling game of the series, beating its previous sales and titles. The free-to-play release of Warzone drove players to upgrade to full version. Statistics also show that the free-to-play release prompted players to spend money on the game’s cosmetics. 

It has been predicted that Activision will reveal their next game at Sony’s PlayStation 5 event.
