To no one’s surprise, Call of Duty is back with another entry in the long-running franchise. This year’s game is Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2, confirmed on Twitter. A small teaser has been revealed as well.

The teaser didn’t reveal much info except the logo, so we don’t know when the game will be released. However, the fourth quarter of 2022 would be our guess. We also don’t know if the game will be available exclusively on new consoles or will include past-gen devices.

Sequel to Modern Warfare, No, Not That One

Modern Warfare 2 (2022) is a sequel to the reboot game, Modern Warfare, released in 2019. Both games shouldn’t be confused with the original MW trilogy launched more than a decade ago. Call of Duty 4 Modern Warfare was released in 2007, and its sequel, also titled Modern Warfare 2, in 2009. Yes, I know it’s confusing. Activision should have really thought this through.

About the Reboot Series

The story of the new Modern Warfare games is not related to the OG trilogy at all. They both follow two different stories. The one in the older games ended with Modern Warfare 3, released back in 2011, while the reboot series has an original that is also connected to Black Ops Cold War. The only thing common between the two series are the names of the iconic characters. We will love to know if the new series gets a third game or not. If it does, I am sure people will be confused with the naming once again.

Rumors and Leaks

Leaks about the upcoming sequel have been up in the air for a long time. According to previous leaks, the game is focused on Colombian Drug Cartels. It is expected to be darker and more brutal than its predecessor. However, we will be the judge of that.
