The next Call of Duty will be called Modern Warfare 2. Activision announced its release date in a teaser video: it will arrive on October 28. At the moment, no images of the game have been shown.
The next Call of Duty has been unveiled! It will be Modern Warfare 2. For the moment, the title remains very mysterious, but at least we have a release date.
Modern Warfare 2 will be released on PC and consoles on October 28, 2022. This is an unsurprising date, given that it is always at this time that the new titles of the saga tumble into stores. The thing was announced through a teaser posted on Twitter.
Caloffe Douty returns to modern warfare
No gameplay images or videos were released by Activision, only character posters that fans are familiar with. As a reminder, Infinity Ward released Modern Warfare in 2019, a reinterpretation of the title of the same name released in 2007. The story was different, but players were able to find iconic characters as well as a modern warfare context.

Modern Warfare 2 will be a direct sequel to this opus, but will not hesitate to pay tribute to the first MW 2, released in 2009. The journalist Tom Henderson, always well informed, specifies that certain cult cards, like Terminal, could make their return in multiplayer.
It will take that to reconnect with success. While Vanguard is one of the best-selling games of the year, its sales figures have disappointed Activision, falling by more than 30% compared to the previous component, Black Ops Cold War. In 2019, Modern Warfare had one of the best performances in the franchise and betting on its sequel could therefore pay off.
It should also be noted that the takeover of Activison-Blizzard by Microsoft has for the moment no impact on the saga. The transaction is expected to be completed in 2023 only. This 2022 component will therefore neither be an Xbox exclusive nor invited to the Game Pass when it is released. However, things are likely to change for Call of Duty in the years to come.
