What Time Does MW2 and Warzone 2 Season 3 Go Live?


Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 and Warzone 2 Season 3 is set to start today, April 12. But what time exactly does it go live?

Activision has promised plenty of content heading to Modern Warfare 2 and Warzone 2 in the new Season 3 update. Aside from the typical addition of a new Battle Pass and some new skins to obtain, players will also be getting three new core maps and two battle maps in MW2. Some of these maps will be available at launch, such as the new Pelayo’s Lighthouse core map, while others will appear over the course of the season.

Warzone Ranked will also be arriving mid-season, where players will get to put their skills to the test and square up with opponents of an equal level.

Tempered Plate Carriers will also be returning in Warzone 2 Season 3, after having their debut on Caldera. Similarly, players can also expect to see UAV towers at launch, first seen in DMZ.

All the additional features coming in Season 3 have been detailed in a recent Call of Duty blog, providing a full roadmap of what's to come. But with Season 3 dropping later today, players will be keen to get stuck in as soon as it goes live.

What Time Does MW2 and Warzone 2 Season 3 Start?

The MW2 and Warzone 2 Season 3 update will go live at 10 a.m. PT/1 p.m. ET on April 12, 2023. The full seasonal update will be available to download an hour earlier, from 9 a.m. PT/12 p.m. ET.

It's unclear how large the update will be, but CoD content updates have a history of being pretty large. Be sure to get your pre-load in to be ready to jump into Season 3 the second it goes live.
