Call Of Duty: Warzone 2 & Modern Warfare 2 Officially Confirmed

Call of Duty: War­zone 2, the assumed name of the sequel to Call of Duty: War­zone, was offi­cial­ly announced Friday–right along­side the next main entry in the series: Mod­ern War­fare 2. The news ini­tial­ly broke on social media ear­ly this after­noon, pri­mar­i­ly through stream­ers and oth­er con­tent cre­ators, plus a small blog post from the devel­op­ment team.

Activi­sion offi­cial­ly con­firmed the infor­ma­tion in a blog post. 2022’s new Call of Duty game will be the sequel to 2019’s Call of Duty: Mod­ern War­fare, which report­ed­ly sold 30 mil­lion copies.

These two new sequels have been “designed togeth­er from the ground up,” as Activi­sion explained. Both games run on the same brand-new engine, with Infin­i­ty Ward lead­ing devel­op­ment on Mod­ern War­fare 2 and the War­zone sequel. Lit­tle is known about War­zone 2, but Activi­sion said play­ers can expect a “mas­sive evo­lu­tion” to the bat­tle royale for­mu­la. This will include an “all-new play­space” and a new sand­box mode, nei­ther of which were detailed in the post.

Activi­sion has been teas­ing War­zone 2 and Mod­ern War­fare 2, so this announce­ment is not exact­ly sur­pris­ing. Activi­sion man­age­ment pre­vi­ous­ly con­firmed new Call of Duty titles were on the way after Call of Duty: Van­guard and the orig­i­nal War­zone did­n’t hit its mark dur­ing the quarter.

YouTu­ber Jack­Frags has new infor­ma­tion on both games as well. War­zone 2, or what­ev­er it will be named, will have “sig­nif­i­cant inno­va­tions,” accord­ing to the report. No two match­es should play the same, devel­op­ers report­ed­ly stat­ed. War­zone 2 won’t be the “same old, same old,” as it’s been reported.

Devel­op­ers told Char­lieIn­tel that when Black Ops Cold War con­tent came to War­zone, the bat­tle royale game “did­n’t feel like Mod­ern War­fare any­more, but also did­n’t feel like Black Ops either.” The devel­op­ers want to ensure this does­n’t hap­pen to the next Warzone.

What will hap­pen to the orig­i­nal War­zone once the sequel launch­es is unknown.

Modern Warfare 2

Accord­ing to Char­lieIn­tel, Mod­ern War­fare 2 will be released this fall. Stu­dio direc­tor Pat Kel­ly said it should be obvi­ous a sequel to the 2019 Call of Duty title would make sense, because it sold 30 mil­lion copies. Basi­cal­ly zero infor­ma­tion is avail­able for Mod­ern War­fare 2, but it has been rumored to be focused on Colom­bian drug cartels.

All of this hap­pens as Microsoft is push­ing to acquire Activi­sion Bliz­zard. Despite the buy­out, Microsoft will keep releas­ing Call of Duty on PlaySta­tion and may even bring the series to the Nin­ten­do Switch.
