Activision and Infinity Ward have been teasing a new COD title for a few months now, and we’ve been waiting eagerly to see what it will be. There were some hints, but now it has finally been confirmed. The next game in the series will be Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2.
Don’t confuse it with the original COD: Modern Warfare 2 we saw in 2009. It’s the sequel to the MW from 2019, which means it won’t be a remake. The reveal came as a logo on Infinity Ward’s official Twitter feed.
While there are no game details as yet, we can only assume it will follow the story of the previous title. There have been some rumors about Columbian cartels and U.S. special forces, but we’ll wait until there’s something more concrete from the developer and publisher.
Sadly, COD: Modern Warfare 2 will be a landmark for the end of annual releases. Ever since Microsoft acquired Activision Blizzard, there have been talks of halting the launch of COD titles every year. We believe this is a move in the right direction, and it will save our bank balances for a change. Then again, we’ll probably see more content in the seasonal Battle Passes for other Call of Duty games.
Of course, we’re still excited about the upcoming mobile release of Diablo Immortal. From June onwards, we’ll be playing our hearts out to see how it compares to Diablo 3 and the current seasonal challenges. At least it will keep us busy while we wait for the launch of Diablo 4, which we hope will appear in 2023.
