The Reloaded update for Call of Duty has become a mainstay since the launch of Modern Warfare in 2019. This update introduces new content into the mainstream title and Warzone prior to the next full season releasing. There’s still no confirmation for a Season 1 Reloaded update coming for Call of Duty: Vanguard and Warzone Pacific. Of course, this hasn’t stopped the community from wondering when it could arrive.

Season 1 for Warzone Pacific and Vanguard has been nothing short of rocky for the majority of players. The Festive Fervor event introduced the ever-persistent Krampus, there are broken weapons in both games and there hasn’t been an update since before Christmas. The issues in both Vanguard and Warzone Pacific were left in-game for weeks because Activision developers went on holiday break until Monday.

With the devs back in the office, speculation continues about the Season 1 Reloaded update and the next major patch for the games.

The Season 1 Reloaded update for Warzone Pacific and Vanguard

In the past, the Reloaded update for each season has released one month after the initial season launched. It wasn’t always exactly one month after to the day, but this was roughly the timeline that Activision has followed.

If Vanguard and Warzone Pacific follow that timeline, then Season 1 Reloaded will release sometime around Jan. 10; Activision rarely releases a major update over the weekend. However, since the devs were on holiday break, it could also be pushed to later in the week, possibly on Jan. 12-13.

The development team hasn’t released any information on the content of Season 1 Reloaded as of Monday. There have been some recent leaks surrounding Ranked play and a new weapon, the Chauchat, but that content is presumably reserved for Season 2. Activision will likely release a Season 1 Reloaded roadmap a couple of days before it releases, so fans can keep an eye out for that over the next week.
