Activision has delayed the release of Modern Warfare 2 and Warzone 2’s second season, having gone on record on social media to let their players know about MW2 & Warzone 2 Season 2 release date. Judging from the announcement made, it looks like the developers have been paying attention to feedback from players and are keen to make sure they implement changes.
“Our studio teams have been making several changes based on what we have heard from our player community”
Also promised in the announcement is plenty of new content, the confirmation of rumors surrounding Resurgence making a return, ranked play for MW2, and a new map for Warzone 2.0. Players and pros alike are piping up in response, clearly keen to see some of these changes made with priority to help save the current dwindling game state:
Ranked Play needs to be a priority off launch to help incentivize players to keep playing multiplayer and to help with the growth of the CDL. It should be a much bigger priority in the development cycle.

Most notably here for Warzone 2 players, Season 2 is apparently looking to include some updates to the gulag, looting, and loadouts. Fixes to loadouts are of particular potential worth, given the recent bugs that have plagued players trying to save their own blueprints since Season 1 Reloaded began.
