Activision has released a new blog post detailing the roadmap for the second season of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2. Among other revelations, the company recently confirmed that the popular Gun Game mode will be returning in Season 2.

Activision launched the first season of Modern Warfare 2 and Warzone 2 with a level cap of 250 and 5 Prestige Ranks. Players who want to unlock the Prestige challenges had to progress by playing any of the multiplayer game modes including battle royale, multiplayer, and DMZ.

Activision will be adding an additional 250 new levels for players in the new season. Gamers can now reach level 500 with season 2. Progress made in season 1 will carry over to the new season, striking a balance between a higher goal without it seeming too intimidating.
