Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Season 6 is over, and it looks like there won't be a Season 7. MW won't get abandoned however, with updates still on the cards for Infinite Ward's release.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Season 6 came to an end and players have been wondering over whether or not there will be a Season 7. It was always said that Modern Warfare would continue to be supported after the release of Black Ops Cold War but there's been no official information about a new season.
Official info still doesn't exist, but there is a tweet from Reed Shingledecker, Lead VFX Artist at Infinity Ward, which at least promises new content:
There is more content coming. I just don't know the official name of it. Hope some info gets released soon so people know what's going on.— Reed S. (@fx_reed) November 23, 2020
In the tweet, the developer confirms that new content for Modern Warfare will be released, but he himself does not know when it will come or what format it will come in.
Why No Season 7?
There are several reasons for this:
- Season 6 has already ended and even Infinity Ward employees do not know the format in which new content will be released in the future. This makes a Season 7 very unlikely.
- Infinity Ward is already working hard on the sequel to Modern Warfare, which will be launched next year as per the usual release schedule. The studio will rather have developers working on the new game rather than Modern Warfare.
- Black Ops Cold War will be integrated into Warzone on December 10. This integration will also unify the entire progress system of BOCW, MW and Warzone. Warzone will in all likelihood mesh with Black Ops Cold War Seasons from then on, making a new Modern Warfare Season unnecessary.
These are only some of the reasons why we won't have a Season 7 in Modern Warfare, but nothing has been officially confirmed yet. Even the most hardcore MW faithfuls must accept that these are all valid points and gear up for a decrease in content quantity and the farewell to M2 Seasons.
