It's been a mixed day for Call of Duty: Warzone players. While there's been several reports about tracking problems with the Hunt For Adler event challenges, Raven Software's offered some positive news for anyone lucky enough to find a next-gen console.

Update - August 4th: Warzone NextGen Update Arriving On August 12th

It's been months since we last heard anything surrounding Warzone's next-gen update and as the start of Season 5approaches, it looks like the battle royale is finally getting an upgrade.

First reported by ModernWarzone, a Twitter user managed to stumble on an inactive link that reads "call-of-duty-bocw-warzone-season-five-patch-notes-next-gen-launch.” Raven Software has yet to reveal any details on what the update will include but it's highly likely that several enhancements and improvements to performance will be made.

Elaborating further, Hodge confirmed they have “a dedicated technology team” working to update Warzone's engine for these enhancements, which would bring it inline with Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War's next-gen edition.

While currently available via backwards compatibility, Warzone's only benefitted when played on an Xbox Series X, having seen a 120fps update last November. Due to differences in system architectures, that update hasn't arrived for the PlayStation edition, as 120fps gameplay requires a native PS5 port.

There's no word on a release date just yet, but we'll hopefully learn more soon.
