COD: Vanguard & Warzone Pacific S2 Delayed To Fix Bugs
It’s vital to keep in mind what’s going on at Activision Blizzard right now in terms of ongoing workplace culture issues. The California Department of Fair Employment and Housing’s (DFEH) continuing action against the corporation is based on the company’s over-reported harmful workplace culture. The suit’s main focus is on “violations of the state’s civil rights and equal pay statutes,” particularly in relation to the treatment of women and other underrepresented groups. Please see our past coverage for additional information on the proceedings thus far, including specifics listed in the case against Activision Blizzard.
Originally set to land February 1, Season 2 will now begin two weeks later on February 14. As for why, it’s to allow Sledgehammer Games and the other teams behind Call of Duty: Vanguard and Warzone Pacific more time to iron out issues players are experiencing across those two titles, and Modern Warfare as well.
“We feel your frustrations and hear you loud and clear,” a Call of Duty blog post released today reads. “To date, we’ve deployed a number of dates, but more needs to be done. For this reason, we have decided to reschedule the start of Season Two across Warzone Pacific and Vanguard to February 14. We will use this additional development time to deliver updates, including optimizations to gameplay, game balancing (including weapon and equipment balancing), to fix game stability and bugs, and to ensure an overall level of polish to improve the experience for players across Vanguard, Warzone Pacific, Black Ops Cold War, and Modern Warfare.”
Upcoming updates will feature quality-of-life improvements and adjustments to the core gameplay loop, mechanics, and balance as well.
“Going forward, you can expect to hear from us more often regarding Call of Duty’s state of play,” the blog reads. “Studios remain focused on continuously improving your game experience, and we greatly value our community feedback. More frequent and detailed communication updates will be posted here and across Call of Duty social channels.”
As for when these updates the blog post mentions will come, no dates were mentioned although the start of Season Two on February 14 will likely feature a big one.
