The story of Windows 7 and Call of Duty Warzone will soon come to an end as Raven Software announces the end of support on the operation system.

Today, Treyarch and Raven Software released the Season Five update for Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War and Warzone. While this is probably good news for most players, it also contains an unwelcoming warning for Windows 7 players of the game.

When Exactly Windows 7 Support Will Be Stopped on Warzone

According to Raven Software, Windows 7 will not be supported by Call of Duty Modern Warfare and Call of Duty Warzone from September 8, 2021. It is less than a month from now.

Although Windows 10 is pretty popular among gamers at the moment, some users still prefer the simplicity and smoothness of Windows 7 over all the fancy stuff on Windows 10.

However, it seems Microsoft’s 12-year-old Windows will be losing a part of its users who still want to continue playing Warzone. But overall, this is an essential change for PC gamers as not many online games support Windows 7 at the moment.

Currently, the Home version of Windows 10 costs $139, which is quite expensive for players who want to continue playing a free game. That being said, there are various discounts for Windows 10 at different retailers, which make it available for below $100.

As per rumors, Microsoft is expected to launch Windows 11 later this year. So, if you could just wait a little longer, you could probably get the latest version of Windows for a similar price to Windows 10 at launch.

Call of Duty Warzone is now available for free on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, and PC.
