This year, Infinity Ward will be releasing Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, a direct sequel to 2019's Modern Warfare reboot. Activision hasn't revealed many details officially yet, but this week, the game was confirmed for an October release.
As reported by Eurogamer, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 (2022) will be releasing on the 28th of October, roughly one week earlier than last year's game, Call of Duty: Vanguard. To coincide with the release date announcement, a new trailer has also been released, showcasing artwork for the game, but unfortunately, we have yet to see any gameplay.
The game will feature returning characters, including Captain John Price, Simon ‘Ghost' Riley, John ‘Soap' MacTavish, Kyle ‘Gaz' Garrick and introducing Mexican Special Forces Colonel Alejandro Vargas.
While we don't have any gameplay yet, nor do we have confirmation on release platforms, recent leaks show that the game will be cross-gen once again, so expect it to be available on Xbox One and PS4, as well as new-gen consoles and PC. Beta tests for the game should also be taking place in the weeks ahead of launch.

KitGuru Says: It could be argued that the last Black Ops game should have been scrapped in favour of another year for Modern Warfare. With Call of Duty potentially skipping 2023, it looks like Modern Warfare 2 will be the main focus for a while longer than we're typically used to.
