Season 3 is set to launch very soon across Modern Warfare 2 and Warzone 2, but what time will things kick off exactly? 

You can expect a bunch of fresh content to come to both Call Of Duty sequels once the Season 3 update finally drops, according to Activision’s official breakdown. 

From new maps and modes to familiar faces, there will be plenty of things to keep you busy across both titles, which have faced criticism for their first few seasons. 

To ensure you don’t miss out on any of the action in the new season, here’s when you can expect the update to go live. 

When does Season 3 start in MW2 and Warzone 2? 

You won’t need to wait much longer as Modern Warfare 2 and Warzone 2 Season 2 will begin on Wednesday, April 12 at 6pm BST in the UK. 

No need to worry if you notice your game running a bit slower during that time, it’s just the incoming update doing its thing. 

Based on previous seasons, it’s safe to assume that the Season 3 Reloaded update will go live around a month later, which means it should be available by mid-May.

There have also been recent leaks that support this information, with claims that Season 3 Reloaded will start on Wednesday, May 10th.
