In the wake of Microsoft's proposed $70 billion acquisition of Activision Blizzard, the publisher has been making some interesting announcements. Not only have we received information on new games from Blizzard, but we're also getting some early confirmation on this year's Call of Duty, with Infinity Ward now confirmed to be handling the 2022 release.
Just as expected, Infinity Ward will be behind Call of Duty 2022, which will usher in “a new generation” for the series. While the studio did not confirm it is working on Modern Warfare 2, there have been enough leaks around the game pointing in that direction.
During Activision Blizzard's quarterly earnings call, the publisher said that it is currently working on “the most ambitious plan” in Call of Duty's history. As reported by VGC, sources with knowledge of the game's development have revealed much of what this plan includes.
Currently, It is expected that Modern Warfare 2 will launch later this year, alongside another full refresh and a new map for Warzone.

KitGuru Says: Black Ops Cold War and Vanguard felt like a step back to me, so I'll be glad to see Infinity Ward and Modern Warfare return this year, assuming the rumours prove true.
