The Modern Warfare Season 3 roadmap is your guide to everything Activision has planned for the upcoming season. There’s plenty on tap, and the provided map gives you an idea of what that is and when you can expect it. It’s one of the most important aspects for any new game or a season of a game, and that’s no different for Call of Duty. Here’s what to expect in the Season 3 update for Modern Warfare 3 and Warzone.

Modern Warfare 3 Season 3 roadmap

MW3 Season 3 new maps

The first thing the roadmap details for MW3 is the new maps coming. There will be six new maps, although only four of them will be available at the release date of the update. Here’s what’s on the way:

  • Emergency (available at Launch)
  • Growhouse (available at Launch)
  • Tanked (available at Launch)

In the same sense, game modes will also be available for Season 3. There are two available at or around the launch time, and three more that will come later on:

  • Capture the Flag (available at Launch)
