Season 6 of Modern Warfare and Warzone is underway and it's more than likely the last season of the Modern Warfare era.
However, Modern Warfare may still have a few tricks up its sleeve yet.
Could a seventh season be on the cards? Plenty of content in the game files would suggest more is still to come or is it being held back for Modern Warfare 2?
Black Ops Cold War is undoubtedly the focus going forward, but will Modern Warfare still support its players in 2021?
Here's everything we know about Season 7 of Modern Warfare.

Possible Season 7 Hint? - 4th October
ACrysos on Twitter tweeted out a photo of one of the in-game screens that appeared when they received some COD Points.
This may have alluded to Season 7 being released for Modern Warfare or the Black Ops Cold War battle pass will be called Season 7, as it notes:
"You have progressed enough in Season 6 than if you purchase the Season 6 Battle Pass you will have earned enough COD Points to buy Season 7 at 50% discount!"
Season 7 Being Replaced By Small Content Updates? - 2nd October
@ModernWarzone has seemingly confirmed that Season 6 is the final season of the Modern Warfare era.
There are, admittedly, files that reference a seventh season but none have been updated for some time.
He believes that Moderrn Warfare will continue to be updated and supported, but the updates will no longer be seasonal.
Instead, Infinity Ward will implement smaller free content drops; but this isn't confirmed.
When Will Season 6 of Modern Warfare Start?
The new season could begin on the 23rd November, as the Battle Pass timer will expire on the on this date; which is well into the new Call of Duty title's launch.
Most major COD updates arrive at 11pm PT/7am BST
Al-Qatala has taken a death blow after the success of the Spec Ops. However, the Al-Qatala had plans to strike one critical weakness of the Armistice; their composition of otherwise opposing enemy factions. An incident occurs that downs a cargo containing a chemical weapon, resulting in a faction conflict between the Allegiance and Coalition members of the Armistice; in order to obtain ownership of the weapon.
The Armistice is now in disarray and the infighting has now grown to full-scale war. The Al-Qatala took advantage of the circumstances and smuggled a nuclear weapon into the Verdansk. Captain Price and other commanders of the Armistice send in a single operator to recover the nuke - Simon "Ghost" Riley.
Despite Ghost's efforts, the operation exceeded the capabilities of a single operator; meaning reinforcements were deployed. Alex, first thought to be KIA during the original campaign, was sent in. The in-fight growing ever more severe, rather than fighting the terrorist threat, the soldiers were fighting amongst each other for survival by attempting to secure the limited means of escape as the chemical gas closes in.
With the situation in Verdansk looking bleak, drastic action was needed to resolve the situation. Task Force 141 was sent in under the leadership of Captain Price.
As the chaos intensifies in Verdansk and the Armistice alliance becomes strained beyond its breaking point, Shadow Company arrives. They make an explosively memorable entrance, dropping in with style to make a statement and bolster the Allegiance, despite the company’s fireteam seemingly operating independently under their own set of rules.
Nikolai and Farah are sent in to help Price cool the war erupting in Verdansk and stopping Zakhaev from transporting nuclear weapons via the subway.
Modern Warfare Season 7 Maps
- Seine Don
- Military Base 2
- Firing Range
Allegedly there were 60 maps in the works for Modern Warfare at one point, but whether they will make it to the final game is unknown.
@ModernWarzone has theorised that some of the maps are being saved for the sequel. Despite reporting High Rise arriving in-game, nothing has been heard since.
But he believes that Broadcast is the next multiplayer map.
We've also got a number of Gunfight maps to look forward to
- Fork (Gunfight)
- Hook (Gunfight)
- Exclusion (Gunfight)
- Boneyard (Gunfight)
- Cornfield (Gunfight)
- Theatre (Gunfight)
- Townhouse (Gunfight)
- Walco 2 (Gunfight)
- Drainage (Gunfight)
- King PM (Gunfight)
- Exclusion (Gunfight)
- Layover (Gunfight)
Please bear in mind, some of these may just be codenames and not their final map names.
Modern Warfare Season 6 Weapons
The AS-VAL and SP-R 208 were added as the Season 6 weapons, with the AA-12 likely to be added in the mid season update.
@TheMW2Ghost has also confirmed that two new codes were added to Season 4 'm200 & m200_c'.
The m200 is the CheyTac Intervention, meaning it could arrive in the next season.
@ModerWarzone also chimed in saying that the Spas-12 was found in the game files back in February.
Call of Duty: Warzone
A few months ago, Taylor Kurosaki (Infinity Ward's Narrative Lead) and Amos Hodge (Raven Software's Director) confirmed that plenty of new content is coming to Warzone including:
- New items in-game that you can put in your loadout
- New items to find in BR and Plunder that aren't in your loadout
- New Field Upgrades
- New modes
- New loot
- Narrative story
We've certainly had plenty of that during the duration of Warzone and it wouldn't be surprising to see more come our way.
Here's everything that has been confirmed and rumoured in the new season for Warzone.
Infinity Ward has assured that ground loot will have a continuous overhaul to diversify the strategies you can take across Warzone; so you can expect new tools of destruction to play with.
Expect to see every weapon type with a silenced and non-silenced variant, allowing squads to kit themselves for silent operations
New weapons and blueprints will be added to Supply Boxes and ground loot to Verdansk and stay tuned for additional meta updates as the Warzone further evolves.
@ModernWarzone has found additional playlists in the code for Warzone:
- Duos: One-Shot and Stimulus
- Solos, Duos, Trios and Quads: Bottom Line
- Infinite Gulag
- Most Wanted
- Run Like Hell
- Mo' Gulag, Mo' Problems
- Inflation Redeployment
There's no mention of a ranked playlist or mode for Warzone at this time.
Since the Battle Royale and the multiplayer are tied together with universal progression (including the battle pass) its unlikely that much will come in the form of unique Warzone cosmetics.
If you've been checking out the strategy guide that Activision launched with Warzone, there are many areas listed as "classified".
It's easy to assume these areas will be unlocked as time goes on and particularly when Season 6 launches.
With confirmation that a Subway is being implemented into Warzone, we're assuming that these classified areas are the Metro station entrances and link up the bunkers.
Players could be forgiven for not noticing certain changes to the new main menu in Modern Warfare and Warzone, that showcases Chernobyl and Pripyat.
In Season 3, the menus showed the Dam overflowing and starting to release water. The current dam in Warzone is frozen and no water is really on the map at all right now.
There were also suspicious howling noises, a mystery that has still yet to be solved.
Strangely, these highlighted areas and points have been completely forgotten about nothing has really arrived from it.
In fact, Infinity Ward’s Narrative Director Taylor Kurosaki briefly mentioned how the studio is looking at Fortnite-like events that fit the Warzone and Modern Warfare universe.
We're currently turning our attention to Black Ops Cold War, which is being revealed in Warzone. New buildings, bunkers and other easter eggs are being discovered that could potentially transform the map.
We know that Warzone will evolve with the new Call of Duty and perhaps once the new game has been officially revealed, we will start to see the map slowly evolve as we get closer to launch.
Is Urzikstan the next Warzone map? Reddit user u/StreetfighterXD seems to think so, and they've written a very detailed description as to why it will be.
It's a logical assumption, after all, Blackout (the Black Ops 4 battle royale) produced two maps during its time.
Not to mention in the opening cinematic for Season 4, you can clearly see Urzikstan highlighted on the map - could the nukes in Season 4 obliterate Verdansk and make way for a new location?
@ModernWarzone has shared information from one of their Discord mods that pointed out a stagnant sand storm is surrounding Urzikstan (in-game).
Although a new map may not be on the way soon, they have reason to believe that the new circle will no longer be gas, but instead a sandstorm.

It ultimately seems very unlikely at this stage and if it was part of the plan in the past, it's likely been scrapped due to release of Black Ops Cold War.
A lot of theories are popping up that suggests tanks will arrive in Warzone, but nothing is concrete yet.
Season 7 Battle Pass Rewards
There will be 100 Tiers of content, some of which will be free, but the rest requires players to purchase the Pass for 1,000 CoD Points.
The Battle Pass features an array of weapons, blueprints, emblems, stickers, charms, calling cards, watches, operator skins, vehicle skins, finishing moves, XP tokens and 1300 COD Points.
You'll be able to purchase 20 Tier skips for 2,400 CoD points, too.
If you managed to grind your way through the battle pass for Season 6, you should have earnt enough points to buy the Season 7 pass for free.
The Spec Ops mode is receiving less love as time goes on, although a few new maps have been added to the survival mode.
We could see a few more maps added this season.
Season 7 Operators
A new season means new Operators and as more campaign characters are added to the mix, there are plenty that could still arrive.
Here are some characters we would like to see return:
- Imran Zakhaev
- Soap MacTavish
- General Shepherd
- Marcus Griggs
- Farah Karim
- Khaled Al-Asad
Season 7 Game Modes
There are many game modes that have been found in the game, but have yet to be added into the rotation:
