Rumor: Modern Warfare 2 Could Be Revealed This Summer

It might release in October due to Vanguard's poor sales, according to Tom Henderson.

2022’s Call Of Duty is expected to be a sequel to 2019’s Modern Warfare. The new title, expected to be called Modern Warfare II, may be unveiled this summer according to insiders. Several notable names in the industry also confirmed this. Names such as Tom Henderson and @TheMW2Ghost. Both of which have gotten leaks correct in the past. 

Unfortunately, this development is due to the fact that Vanguard did not do well. While Henderson is a credible source, we would still like to say that take this with a grain of salt. 

Last years Call of Duty: Vanguard was revealed late in August 2021. COD games are usually revealed in May, however Vanguard was expected to have low sales, on top of the workplace abuse controversies at Activision Blizzard. These factors led Activision to unveil the game later on. 

Speculated Release Date

2022’s Call of Duty title is also expected to release a month early in October, with a larger update to Warzone coming shortly after. Call of Duty games have historically released in November, so this is a shift of strategy on Activision’s part. This move may be to please investors and boost Q4 earnings, who were dissatisfied with Vanguard’s sales. 

Modern Warfare II is rumored to be set in South America, and be a direct followup to 2019’s Modern Warfare. Drug cartels are also expected to play a role in the story. On top of that, a new Warzone map is expected to come, replacing Caldera currently in Warzone now. 

This could be a massive change considering Activision has to release the game early in order to appease investors. It could also spell disaster for them since people are not happy with the current state of Call of Duty. Their latest entry, Call of Duty: Vanguard, was not well received at all. What are your thoughts on this matter? We would love to hear them in the comments below.
