Activision has recently confirmed that Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Season 4, Call of Duty: Mobile Season 7 and Call of Duty: Warzone updates will be delayed in light of US protests.
For the time being, The United States of America is going through a delicate situation in social matters and the administration of justice that has led to a series of protests throughout the country. There are various sectors including many video game companies who have joined the clamor for justice after the murder of George Floyd at the hands of the Minneapolis police, and this has had an immediate impact.
In a recent announcement, Activision revealed news related to Call of Duty. Through a post on its official Twitter account, Activision reported that given the circumstances that are taking place in the US, this is not the right time to think about launching content for video games, so the new seasons of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Season 4, Call of Duty: Warzone and Call of Duty: Mobile Season 7 have been delayed until further notice.

According to the statements, Activision confirmed the following:
“While we all look forward to playing the new seasons of Modern Warfare, Warzone, and Call of Duty: Mobile, now is not the time. We are moving the launches of Modern Warfare Season 4 and Call of Duty: Mobile Season 7 to later dates.”
In the same way, the company also stated that it is time for all those who speak of equality, justice and change to be heard and endorse their support for those who have come out to protest the injustices of the system.
The situation in the US was reason enough for PlayStation to decide to delay its presentation event for PS5 games, which was scheduled for this week on Thursday. For all these reasons, Sony pointed out that this is not the time for any video game celebration, since there are serious problems to attend to.
