Modern Warfare 2 Season 1 Release Date: When is it?


Wondering when Season 1 of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II will arrive? We've got you covered.

Although Modern Warfare 2 has finally launched, complete with 51 new weapons and 55 ranks for players to conquer, it's pretty hard to deny that the real show won't get started until Season 1 drops. Here's a breakdown of when Season 1 of Modern Warfare 2 is set to release.

Season 1 of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 is set to release on Nov. 16.

The launch is set to bring major features to MW2, including a new Battle Pass system, Prestiging, hardcore Tier 1 multiplayer playlists, a CDL Moshpit multiplayer playlist, at least four new weapons and more. Modern Warfare 2's first Co-Op Raid is also said to be coming midway through the season.

Additionally, the start of Season 1 will debut the free-to-play Call of Duty: Warzone 2.0, which includes the all-new DMZ experience and traditional Battle Royale modes.

Modern Warfare 2 has had a groundbreaking debut. Released on Oct. 28, the game has reached over $800 million in sales just three days after its launch.

The game's launch, which Activision has noted in a statement as more lucrative than the top worldwide box office sales of films in 2022, has surpassed the success of its 2011 title Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3. MW3's record of $775 million was reached five days after its respective release.
