That’s right, gaming fans will have to endure another delay this year with the latest Call of Duty: Warzone Pacific map delayed by a week. It was originally set to release on December 2nd, however, after a small setback, Activision decided to announce an official week-long push back via social media channels.
According to the official Call of Duty Twitter account, Vanguard owners will receive early access to play the new Pacific map – with open access falling 24 hours after (December 9th). Furthermore, the launch of Vanguard Season 1 will also be pushed back from December 2nd to December 8th – not only annoying fans but also putting it into the direct firing line of Halo Infinite’s official release date.

Alongside the delay of the map and Vanguard Season 1, the new Ricochet anti-cheat system will also be pushed back to the same day.
