Activision have delayed Call of Duty: Modern Warfare's battle pass to December 2019, it's been confirmed by the publisher in their Quarterly Earnings report.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare officially launched earlier this month and the publisher Activision and the developer Infinity Ward have big plans for their new shooter when it comes to new content. We already got two free maps, which dropped yesterday - 10 November - and a lot more free content is coming in the near future.
It's been confirmed earlier that Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is ditching the Supply Drops to introduce battle pass system but according to the latest info from Activision, the battle pass will arrive a bit later than initially planned. Activision confirmed on their Quarterly Earning report that Modern Warfare's battle pass will officially launch sometime in December 2019.
“We will support other key franchises with a stream of content, services, events, and features. This includes our new in-game system for Modern Warfare, which begins in December, slightly later than originally planned,” the publisher confirmed.
Players will be able to buy Premium Battle Pass with the in-game currency named Call of Duty points. At the moment, Activision is yet to unveil their plans for the game's monetisation but judging from the previous games, we doubt the battle pass will be the only option to spend real-world money on in-game items.
The publisher already said that they want to allow players to see what exactly they are earning or buying with the new battle pass system. Hopefully, this will be the case and it would mark a shift in Activision's monetisation strategy. We at AltChar enjoy Modern Warfare despite a couple of issues and it would be a real shame to ruin a rather enjoyable game with microtransactions.
