Activision has finally announced the release date for Call of Duty Warzone Season 5 with a trailer that showcases their new Operator, Kitsune.

One of the most exciting aspects of the forthcoming version is that it will reportedly bring about the reveal of Call of Duty 2021, Vanguard. This isn’t confirmed, but reports suggest it’s an entry that will have a campaign unlike Battlefield 2042, as well as take place during the second World War.

Although we’ll have to wait and see if anything happens with Vanguard, the good news is that the community will soon be treated to arguably the most exciting Operator yet.

When does Warzone Season 5 come out?

The release date for when Call of Duty Warzone Season 5 will come out is August 12th.

This is a little later than some people were anticipating, but its arrival was known to be imminent because Season 4 is scheduled to end on August 9th. Activision’s official launch date comes courtesy of their fresh trailer.

It’s a fully CG trailer, but it shows one of the new Operators that was previously leaked. With a laptop that is counting down, she is pursued by a group of mercenaries who kill their leader when the signal is finally uploaded.

Warzone Season 5 Operators

Only one Operator has been leaked for Call of Duty Warzone Season 5, and Activision’s newest trailer confirms her involvement.

Leaks suggest that her name is Kitsune, and she can be seen wielding a pair of TEC-9 SMGs. While she’s clearly more than capable with guns at her hip, her most powerful weapon and skill is her hacking prowess.

She was able to control the minds of her enemies by uploading a signal, but – most importantly – she simply looks badass with her eye patch, visible scar, and tattoos.

Map changes

There’s no real rumours about any significant map changes for Season 5, but there are suggestions that Vanguard will see the arrival of a new World War 2 battlefield.

It’s likely this fresh map will arrive close to the launch of the newest Call of Duty instalment. No release date has been given for the forthcoming entry, but they usually come out in October/November.
