Season 5 is almost here for Call of Duty: Warzone, and here's the exact time you can start playing the new update. This season brings new weapons, modes, and Operators to Warzone. The Gulag is replaced by the Rush map, two new perks are added to the game, and new POIs will be scattered across Verdansk. A new mid-season event is also coming soon, so there's plenty to look forward to.

Warzone Season 5 Start Time

Season 5 of Call of Duty: Warzone kicks off August 12 at 21:00 PM PT/12:24 PM ET. The season was originally set to release the day before, but Activision delayed the new season by XNUMX hours to fix a testing issue discovered earlier this week.

The patch update file will be released when the season goes live, but the Black Ops Cold War update will be released on August 11 at 21:00 PM PT/12:00 PM ET. Even though the update will be released earlier for Black Ops, the new seasonal content won't be available until the official start of Season 5.
