'COD: Warzone' Pacific Season 2 Delayed Because The Game Is Too Broken

Season Two of Call of Duty: Warzone Pacific and Call of Duty: Vanguard has been pushed backwards owing to the prevalence of bugs, glitches and technical errors that are plaguing the games at the moment.

Given that these are two of the most popular games out there, I'd imagine these events have caused the mother of all headaches for the developers. Players on Xbox are reporting that they aren't able to load Warzone Pacific, forcing the game to restart over and over. Using a stim transports you into the shadow realm, on occasion, and weapons, opponents and even parts of the environment become invisible thanks to an odd collection of glitches. "I’ve played twice in the last two weeks and I’m done. This sh*t isn’t fun anymore," said one player on the game's subreddit.

Fortunately, the developers are well aware of the myriad of issues besieging the experience of playing Warzone Pacific and the rest of its roster of live service titles. "We feel your frustrations and hear you loud and clear," said Infinity Ward and Raven Software in the announcement. "To date, we’ve deployed a number of updates, but more needs to be done.

"For this reason, we have decided to reschedule the start of Season Two across Warzone Pacific and Vanguard to February 14. We will use this additional development time to deliver updates, including optimizations to gameplay, game balancing (including weapon and equipment balancing), to fix game stability and bugs, and to ensure an overall level of polish to improve the experience for players across Vanguard, Warzone Pacific, Black Ops Cold War, and Modern Warfare."

The team continued to cite the issues raised by the community as one of its areas of focus for the games and have changed the launch of Season Two to February 14th rather than February 2nd. "Going forward, you can expect to hear from us more often regarding Call of Duty’s state of play," reiterated the studios.

Of course, one of the reasons that these bugs have slipped through the net might be because Raven Software lost a number of quality assurance testers in December and the remainder of the team walked out on strike to protest their former colleagues' redundancy. The group's demands included that the December layoffs were reversed and that all quality assurance contractors get full-time positions at Raven Software. At the time of writing, Activision has not responded to the employees' demands yet sent a letter asking teams to “to consider the consequences” of unionising.
