Last month, Infinity Ward officially confirmed the long-lasted rumors about this year’s Call of Duty. The next Call of Duty will indeed be called Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II, and it will be a sequel to 2019’s reboot of the original Modern Warfare trilogy that Infinity Ward developed between 2007 and 2011.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare was released in 2019 and it was a huge success. The game featured some of the already known characters like Captain Price, but this game had no connection to the original MW trilogy. Now, three years later, after Treyarch’s Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War and Sledgehammer Games’ Call of Duty: Vanguard, Infinity Ward is set to release the anticipated sequel of the reboot. Now, it was confirmed that Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II will be released on October 28, 2022.
Back in 2007, Infinity Ward released Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, which was the first game of the franchise set in modern times. The game was a huge success and it redefined the FPS genre and the Call of Duty franchise as such. In 2009, the sequel Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 was released, and it was also a huge success, followed by the conclusion of the trilogy in 2011 with Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3. After that, Infinity Ward developed Call of Duty: Ghosts and Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, but those games didn’t manage to achieve the success of the original MW trilogy, which is why Infinity Ward decided to go back and make a reboot of their most known trilogy.
The upcoming Call of Duty will feature some of the most known MW characters, including Captain Price, Soap MacTavish, and Simon Riley, also known as Ghost, who is featured in the official artwork of the game.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II is set to be released on October 28, 2022.
