Call Of Duty: Vanguard Warzone season 2 operators leak days after delay announcement
Vanguard’s second season of content was delayed days before launch
Following the delay of Call Of Duty Warzone‘s Season 2 update, images of several operators from the new season of content have leaked.
Originally posted by user @ZestyLeaks before the posts were removed in response to a claim by the copyright holder, the images show off three new playable characters, Anna, Gustavo and Thomas.
Another image, which is claimed to be a work-in-progress for a smaller map reportedly coming to the game was also uncovered, however how that will be implemented in the game, and whether it was intended for Season 2 is unknown.
The Season 2 release date has been pushed back by 12 days to an “expected” February 14 launch in order to allow developers to prioritise “balancing and optimizing” the gameplay experience in light of various problems.
An update on the official Call of Duty site reads: “Currently, our community is experiencing issues across Call of Duty: Vanguard, Warzone Pacific, and Modern Warfare.
“We feel your frustrations and hear you loud and clear.
“To date, we’ve deployed a number of updates, but more needs to be done.”
It added: “We will use this additional development time to deliver updates, including optimizations to gameplay, game balancing (including weapon and equipment balancing), to fix game stability and bugs, and to ensure an overall level of polish to improve the experience for players across Vanguard, Warzone Pacific, Black Ops Cold War, and Modern Warfare.
“Upcoming implementations will address several concerns raised by the community and other quality-of-life improvements. Adjusting the core gameplay loop, mechanics, and balance is a continuing and important focus. Fixes will apply to your platform of choice — two generations of consoles and PC — as well as gameplay in general across all five systems.”
Activision also said that going forward, players can expect to hear from it “more often regarding Call of Duty’s state of play”, following recent criticism from fans over a lack of communication about game updates.
Warzone has suffered from various performance issues since the launch of its Pacific update and new map, Caldera, over a month ago.
Activision’s Call of Duty studios acknowledged last week that Vanguard and Modern Warfare are also suffering from notable issues.
