With the announcement of Black Ops Cold War, the launch of a new live event and the start of Summer of Games, it could be easy enough for Activision to skip a Call of Duty Modern Warfare update this week. But with a few things coming to an end this week, it seems as good a time as any to launch the latest COD Warzone patch. News of what is being planned for this week is expected to arrive later today, August 31, followed by the new Call of Duty update going live on Tuesday, or Wednesday, September 1-2.
Timing can be up in the air, but an evening release in the UK could be likely, depending on how big an update is being planned.
