Activision has decided to indefinitely postpone the upcoming seasons of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, Warzone, and Call of Duty: Mobile.
The announcement was made on its official Twitter:
— Call of Duty (@CallofDuty) June 2, 2020
Before the announcement, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare would have had its fourth season launch on June 3. Similarly, Call of Duty: Mobile was meant to launch sometime this week (June 1 – June 5).
The move was done due to the ongoing civil unrest in America, as protests escalate over the murder of George Floyd by police hands.
Before Activision, Google decided to postpone its Android 11 Beta launch, originally set on June 3.
Soon after, Sony also decided to delay its PS5 event indefinitely earlier this morning. The event would have taken place on June 4.
All companies have yet to mention a new date for their cancelled events. Understandably, there are more important matters to deal with now than game and tech events.
However, I can’t help but wonder if Apple may decide to postpone its upcoming WWDC online event. If the civil unrest continues to develop at a negative rate, I won’t be surprised if the company decides to delay it, too.
