The upcoming Season 4 of Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare has been delayed by publisher Activision in light of ongoing instances of police brutality in response to protests in the United States. As well as Season 4 of Modern Warfare, the latest Season 7 update for Call Of Duty: Mobile has also been affected.

Posting in a short statement on Twitter, the publisher explained that they felt it inappropriate to go ahead with the update as planned, explaining "now is not the time". Referring to the current unrest in America and outpouring of grief around the world due to the unlawful killing of George Floyd by a police officer, Activision stated that they stand in solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement.

The update was meant to go ahead on June 3rd, and will be the final Season before Call Of Duty 2020 is released, with the franchise's latest offering usually coming out in October of each year.

Alongside Activision, other gaming publishers and developers have been reacting to the situation, with Sony postponing their PlayStation 5 reveal event, which was supposed to take place on June 4th. Similarly, they have delayed the reveal indefinitely.

Next week would have been the time that annual gaming convention E3 took place, had it not been for the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic still unfolding around the world. Instead of gathering in Los Angeles, the gaming industry was set to hold a number of online events to showcase their upcoming games. It's unclear whether these will go ahead as planned at the moment.
