UPDATE - August 4th: An Activision spokesperson has reached out to ModernWarzone, confirming that the URL that was uncovered is "bogus," suggesting that it may be a while until the next-gen update makes an appearance.

First reported by ModernWarzone, Season 5 will see the launch of Warzone's next-gen update. Exact details on what the update includes haven't been revealed but we can expect several performance enhancements and FPS improvements to capitalise on the immense power of the Xbox Series X and the PlayStation 5.

COD: Vanguard Reveal Event

UPDATE - August 11th - ModernWarzone has seemingly confirmed the date for the Vanguard reveal, much to the excitement of the community. According to the outlet, the event will take place on August 19th.

Just like Black Ops Cold War, it's widely believed that Vanguard will be revealed through Warzone, meaning the likelihood of an in-game reveal event is extremely high.

There have already been several clues pointing towards a reveal event taking place within the files of the game, so Season 5 could well be the season where Warzone plays host to the very first look at Vanguard.

UPDATE - August 2nd - TEC-9 Pistol Leaked

A leaker has managed to uncover one of the new weapons expected to arrive in Season 5. The TEC-9 is extremely familiar to Counter-Strike players as it is often considered to be one of the best pistols in the game.

Now it's coming to Warzone, there's every chance that the pistol could dominate the close-quarters metagame.

Over the course of the Black Ops Cold War era of Warzone, we've seen the additions of new tactical rifles, assault rifles, submachine guns, and even a Nail Gun. Although no official intel has been unveiled surrounding the new weapons, we may see a brand-new shotgun or another sniper added into the ever-expanding arsenal.

What's Included In The Season 5 Battle Pass?

Based on the short trailer that was published on August 10th, the Season 5 Battle Pass will be full of content evolving around Kitsune, the latest Operator to join the roster. Check out the trailer below for a closer look:

When Does Warzone Season 5 Start

When the Season 4 Battle Pass comes to an end, we can get a solid idea as to when Season 5 will begin. The current Battle Pass is set to run until August 11th, approximately two months after Season 4 launched.

We can assume that Season 5 of Warzone will begin on August 12th.

Warzone Season 5 Leaks

So far, there have been no leaks suggesting what kind of brand-new content will be making its way to Verdansk and Rebirth Island in Season 5.

Considering that we are moving towards the reveal window for Call of Duty: WWII Vanguard, there is every chance that the upcoming release plays a huge role during Season 5.

Weapon Balancing

In the Season 4 patch notes, Raven Software outlined plans to increase the time to kill across the board. With these changes expected to take place during Season 4, Season 5 could well feature another wave of weapon balancing, depending on the success of the changes.

Could this destabilise the existing meta? We will have to wait and see.
