On Instagram, Garena, who publishes the game in Southeast Asia, teased the new season and revealed the COD Mobile Season 8 release date as 11th July 2020.
The COD Mobile Season 8 release date will likely not change, so mark those calendars for a new season, entitled Apocalypse Day.
Is Makarov coming to COD Mobile?
It is very likely COD Mobile players will see Vladimir Makarov enter the game, possibly as a new operator, or the instigator of an event.

The image revealing the release date teases a shadowy figure coming to the game, and by the looks of it, there is very little doubt it Vladimir Makarov, the main antagonist of the Modern Warfare franchise.

Keep in mind this could possibly be someone else, but it is very likely to be Makarov entering COD Mobile with Season 8.
COD Mobile new map
Unlike the Makarov tease, we are certain a new map is coming to COD Mobile with Season 8. Yes, from the image below you can see Highrise is coming to the game.
