It’s just the latest development for a game that struggled to stay in the shadows before its official reveal. Earlier in February of this year, publisher Activision Blizzard quietly confirmed that a sequel to the 2019 Modern Warfare reboot was in development at Infinity Ward, the studio that handled the 2019 reboot and the Modern Warfare series before it. .
Earlier this week, during a financial quarter earnings call, Activision Blizzard once again left another comment about the unannounced sequel. This time around, the publisher said it would be “the most advanced experience in franchise history,” and that’s a pretty long story for the unannounced Modern Warfare 2.
Finally, the publisher confirmed that Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 will release later this year in 2022. Considering we’re now fast approaching the halfway point of the year, it’s perhaps not surprising that developer Infinity Ward is moving forward with external playtests as soon. Hoping a reveal for the sequel isn’t too far off.
All this is the following Call of Duty: Warzone 2which Activision Blizzard has also confirmed is in active development.
