Activision Blizzard has delayed Call of Duty: Warzone‘s upcoming Pacific update by one week.
The update adds a new Pacific-themed Caldera map to the free-to-play shooter and was originally intended to launch December 2. However, as a tweet from the game’s official account revealed, it will now arrive December 8. The tweet did not offer a reason for the delay. Players who own Call of Duty: Vanguard will get first dibs on the new location. The new location then opens to everyone else one day later, on December 9.
The new location will be roughly the size of Verdansk and includes a bunch of Call of Duty: Vanguard content, as previously established. For example, the update will also include a new machinegun fighter aircraft and other new vehicles. We’re also promised streamlined loadouts and of course, the kernel-level portion of the new Ricochet anti-cheat system on PC.
Interestingly enough, the new release date now puts the Call of Duty: Warzone Pacific launch head to head with Halo Infinite‘s single-player campaign release due on the same day. All’s fair in love and war and all that. Of course, all this also goes on while publisher Activision Blizzard is seeing mounting pressure calling for its CEO to resign.
