Activision has announced that the release date for Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 is October 28, 2022.
The release date was shared as part of a unveiling in Port of Long Beach, Los Angeles. Within 24 hours, a team maneuvered a cargo ship containing a Modern Warfare 2 wrap.
Alongside the announcement, Activision released the teaser trailer below that revealed artwork for Infinity Wards games and some of the lead roles.
“Task Force 141 returns with a global team of iconic veterans, these operators include Captain John Price, Simon ‘Ghost’ Riley, John ‘Soap’ MacTavish, Kyle ‘Gaz’ Garrick and Introducing Mexican Special Forces Colonel Alejandro Vargas,” reads the text, included with the trailer.
Artwork Reveal – Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II
Activision unveiled the Modern Warfare 2 title and logo in late April.
A low-quality Modern Warfare 2 gameplay clip apparently leaked last week ahead of the first official gameplay showing, which is expected in early June.
As first reported by VGC in September 2021, Modern Warfare 2’s campaign will be centered around the drug war against Colombian cartels.
Sources said the single-player story is “a more cruel bid for Modern Warfare 2019’s campaign”, with closer matches, difficult decision-making and the classic Call of Duty scenery that fans have come to expect.
According to people with knowledge of the developer’s plans, Modern Warfare 2 will be released along with a brand new map for Warzone: the third such brand new arena to be launched for the Battle Royale spin-off.
As with Verdansk, which is based on Modern Warfare 2019, and Caldera, which was launched shortly after last year’s Vanguard, the new MW2 Warzone map will consist of various classic points of interest, it is claimed.
Finally, Infinity Wards Warzone maps will have a different purpose: to house the third state of Modern Warfare 2, which is described by sources as a mixture of PvP and PvE, similar to Battlefield 2042’s Hazard Zone.
Modern Warfare 2 is under development at Infinity Ward along with the new Call of Duty Warzone.
Warzone 2 details allegedly leaked online last week, including plans to bring the game closer to Call of Duty’s first battle royale, Black Ops 4’s Blackout.
