Bravo Season 6, going dark. With the sun setting on Season 5 of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, Season 6 is about to begin. And while 2020's Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War is just around the corner, there's still plenty of life in Modern Warfare.
Here's everything that we know about Season 6 for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and Call of Duty: Warzone.
When is the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Season 6 release date?
The release date for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Season 6 is September 29. On that day, the Season 6 Battle Pass will be available, with two new Operators joining the fight. Based on the roughly two-month timetable for Modern Warfare seasons, Season 6 will be the "last" before the release of Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War in November.
That said, the continued popularity of Modern Warfare and its ties to Warzone means there's still more than likely a possibility for Seasons 7, 8, 9, and so on.
What's with subways in Season 6? Are subways being added to Warzone?
Yes! In a teaser trailer for Season 6, Call of Duty revealed that subways will be a new feature to Call of Duty: Warzone. The cinematic trailer that opens the season involves the campaign characters Farah and Nikolai joining the fight via an underground subway.
This supports previous leaks that subway station interiors are coming to the Verdansk map in Call of Duty: Warzone. Even though subway stations have been in Verdansk for some time, they were never important.
As far back as July 2020, Call of Duty insider BKTOOR was teasing the importance of Verdansk's metro. A little while later, a follower of the Twitch and YouTube personality Geeky Pastimes noticed something odd during Call of Duty League's Championship Weekend in late August 2020. At one point, there was a bird's eye view shot over the Stadium, with a subway station next to the Stadium that's not currently accessible in-game is open.
Where can I watch the trailer cinematic for Season 6?

Will Call of Duty: Warzone Season 6 add new weapons?
Activision has not yet revealed the weapons of Season 6 — officially. But data mine leaks from multiple fan sources reveal the following weapons that may join the arsenal of Modern Warfare in Season 6:
- AS VAL (assault rifle)
- AA-12 (shotgun)
- R700 (sniper rifle)
Every Season does bring a new battle pass and a variety of new weapons, Operators, and modes to the game though, and there's no reason to suspect that Season 6 will be any different. In fact, it will probably be even more exciting because Season 6 will probably have ongoing ties directly to Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War.
Who are the new Operators of Season 6?
Season 6 of Modern Warfare is introducing two fan favorites from the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare campaign.
- Farah, the founder and commander of the Urzikstani Liberation Force who survived imprisonment by Roman Barkov and who players briefly get to control in the Modern Warfare campaign.
- Nikolai, a leader of the Chimera and ally and friend to Captain Price. A proud Russian patriot, Nikolai helps arm the heroes of Modern Warfare hoping to get rid of Barkov, whom he considers a stain on Russia.
Both Farah and Nikolai can be acquired through the Season 6 Battle Pass.
Will Call of Duty Season 6 tie into Black Ops Cold War?
As of now, there is no official acknowledgement that Season 6 directly connects to Black Ops Cold War. About the closest connection is that the Woods Operator Pack, a pre-order bonus for Black Ops Cold War, unlocks the Black Ops character Frank Woods (along with his special weapon blueprint and unique finishing move) for use in Call of Duty: Warzone. It's not exactly a Season 6 tie-in specifically, as you can unlock and play as Woods now, but it is quite close to the release of Season 6.
And based on how gung-ho Activision has been on keeping the connective tissues of Modern Warfare, Warzone, and Black Ops Cold War, fans can only expect even more such goods to come.
Season 6 of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare begins on September 29.
