CALL of Duty Modern Warfare 2 is the next blockbuster shooter in the legendary series – and it’s almost there.
We have the latest details on Modern Warfare 2, key characters and release date.
What is Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2?
call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 – or as it’s officially titled Modern Warfare II – is an upcoming first-person shooter.
The name is a giveaway: it’s part of the hugely successful Call of Duty franchise and marks the 19th entry in the main series.
It is expected to start towards the end of 2022 and will be developed by Infinity Ward – but published by Activision.
If the name sounds familiar, that’s because Infinity Ward developed a Modern Warfare 2 way back in 2009.
This newer game is a sequel to the 2019 soft reboot of the Modern Warfare series.
So, although the name and game content are similar to the 2009 release, they are completely separate titles.
Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 release date
Call of Duty games always launch towards the end of the year – and the 2022 entry is no different.
Modern Warfare 2 release date is set for October 28th.
That means it will be out in time for Christmas.
And maybe you can snag it in some sort of Black Friday bundle too.
Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 Setting and Characters
This isn’t the same game as Modern Warfare 2 from 2009 – but there are a lot of similarities.
First off, a host of legendary Modern Warfare cast members are returning.
- Captain John Price
- Sergeant John “Soap” MacTavish
- Sergeant Kyle “Gaz” Garrick
- Lieutenant Simon “Ghost” Riley
- CIA station chief Kate Laswell
We will also meet a new character called Colonel Alejandro Vargas.
He is a new member of the legendary Task Force 141 and will work alongside Price and others.
How exactly the plot will look like is still unclear.
In Modern Warfare 2019, we saw a CIA bureau team up with the SAS to take on Russian forces and a terrorist group called Al-Qatala.
In a blog post about Modern Warfare 2, Activision said: “A global force of iconic veterans and new legends of yet untold secret missions, these Operators will usher in a new era of Call of Duty when Modern Warfare® II releases on October 28, 2022 .”
Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 Warzone
Warzone is the free spin-off of Call of Duty that doesn’t require purchasing the main game.
Launched in 2020, it had two main maps: Verdansk (which has been revised several times) and Caldera.
We’re expecting a brand new version of Warzone to tie in with the release of Modern Warfare 2.
This is tentatively referred to as Warzone 2, although Activision has only referred to it as a “new Warzone experience”.
It’s unclear if Warzone 2 will be released at the same time as Modern Warfare 2 or later.
And we don’t yet know how closely the games will be linked.
It’s also possible that the current Warzone game will live on with support instead of being completely replaced by Warzone 2.
We can expect to hear more in the coming months.
