Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, Warzone 2 Season 2 Details Revealed

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 and Call of Duty: Warzone 2's season 2 is nearly here and we have all the details about what it includes. Both Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 and Warzone 2 were huge hits at launch, receiving massive influxes of players and sales, even going as far to shatter records for the long-running blockbuster franchise. However, many have been critical of some of the gameplay choices that Infinity Ward made to both games as well as the way content has been rolled out since release. Due to the fact the developer has had to address rightful critiques, it has slowed down the team's ability to also release new content, but season 2 looks to be a pretty meaty new addition to the game.
