Warzone and Modern Warfare 2’s Season 5 Reloaded launched on 30 August 2023, marking the season’s final major update ahead of its end. We do expect a Warzone and MW2 Season 6 release, but when will it come, and what content will it bring?

Warzone & MW2 Season 6 Release Date

Warzone and Modern Warfare 2 Season 6 will release on Sept. 27, 2023. You can expect a launch time of 9 a.m. PT/12 p.m. ET/5 p.m. BST.

Right now, Season 5 is set to expire on Sept. 27, 2023, which is the same day the new season starts.

It’ll make Season 6 a similar length to Season 5 – around 6 weeks or so. That’s slightly shorter than most (which run to around 8 weeks), but MW3’s scheduled release on November 10, 2023, necessitates a shorter final season. 

Warzone & MW2 Season 6: The Haunting Features

Call of Duty Season 6: The Haunting features a wide variety of spooky content, from everyone’s favorite anti-hero Spawn to darkly-themed multiplayer maps.

Warzone players can dive into Operation Nightmare at Al Mazrah on Oct. 17, 2023, where they must explore the area to locate the high-value target. More heads will roll as you try to take down other enemies, providing you with rewards, like the Mastery Weapon Blueprint, from the bounty board.

Aside from Al Mazrah, Vondel has been taken over by the undead, and it’s up to you to decipher the source of a strange anomaly. The location will also include Lockdown, an objective-based Battle Royale that requires players to find and capture zones in a Halloween-like environment.

The Zombie Royale will be available on both maps for a limited time, showcasing an all-out war with the deadly creatures. But, instead of being transferred to the Gulag upon elimination, you’ll find yourself harnessing the abilities of a zombie to consume anyone who stands in your way.

Those who want to sink their teeth into some treats (gear) can expect the following items:

  • Captured Souls – An element from the Captured Souls event (Al Mazrah and Vondel) that can be used for rewards.
  • Haunted Box – Fallen zombies can drop these items (or on the general map) to provide you with plates, equipment, and ammunition.
  • Bloodseeker Grenade – A living grenade that can latch onto foes and highlight them with thermal vision.
  • Trick and Treat: Jump Scares – These will randomly trigger when opening a container in Al Mazrah or Vondead (Vondel), giving you bonus rewards.

Modern Warfare 2 Season 6: The Haunting Content

Modern Warfare 2 The Haunting event showcases four locations: two Core and two Gunfight on release day:

  • La Casa (Core)
  • Koro Village (Core)
  • King (Gunfight)
  • Fight (Gunfight)

Each map comes with its own set of challenges, as well as an addition of spooky-themed re-skins for El Asilo and the Embassy. Many multiplayer modes will also be changed mid-season, such as Domination, Kill Confirmed, and Infected, to go along with the Halloween season. So, if you want to experience these modes in an entirely new way, you can tune in for a terrifying surprise.

Warzone and MW2 will hold a Soul Capture event in all game modes (mid-season), allowing you to earn valuable gear based on the number of souls you’ve collected. Operators like V4L3RIA, Spawn, and Al Simmons will also be available to provide players with more skin options.

As for weapons, players can expect the following tools:

  • TR-76 Geist Assault Rifle
  • ISO 9mm SMG
  • Dual Kamas Melee
  • DOOM Chainsaw Melee (mid-season)

There will also be mid-season equipment items to look forward to for The Haunting event. For example, the Sound Veil Scream Field Upgrade produces a blood-curling sound wave, while the Decoy Grenade Tactical has a similar effect as a lure.

That’s everything to say on Warzone and MW2 Season 6. We’ll be sure to keep this updated as more is known, so stay tuned for all the latest on Call of Duty.
