When does the Warzone Season 3 Update go live? Season 3 of the Call of Duty battle royale, Warzone, is shaping up to be the largest update to the game mode since its release in March 2020. We are only a short day away from the update, and there are many updates set to come.

When Does the Warzone Season 3 Update Go Live?

Like the Cold War: Black Ops update, the Season 3 update will be available at 9 p.m. PST on Wednesday, April 21. Before the update, an in-game event is set to happen in Verdansk, starting at 12 p.m. PST on the same day.

The official Call of Duty blog post writes:

"The situation in Verdansk has hit a critical level. It seems the combat zone has become too dangerous for even a Tier 1 Operator to survive in. Is a conflagration imminent? The answer is still unknown, though it is recommended you clear your schedule for the week and ready yourself for a crescendo of utter chaos within the Warzone. Be certain you’re available for Operation Rapid Sunder throughout Wednesday, April 21, and beyond.

"Armistice Central Command will be communicating directly to all Operators with further instructions, starting at 12 PM Pacific Time on April 21. Return to the Call of Duty blog—and to Warzone—on this date to receive updates."

Aside from the typical updates including a new battle pass, operator skins, weapons, and other in-game items, nothing has been confirmed regarding a new map. Leaks of a 1980s themed Verdansk have been circulating heavily in the community for a few weeks, but with nothing confirmed it's anyone's guess for what is to come.

If you can't witness the in-game event by being in-game, the next best thing to do is to watch one of the thousands of live content creators that will be broadcasting the event.
