A sequel to 2019’s Modern Warfare was officially announced back in February, alongside Warzone 2. Infinity Ward is taking the lead on Modern Warfare 2, but 11 different studios are reportedly working on the game in some capacity. Other reports say the campaign will feature U.S. special forces fighting Colombian drug cartels.
Modern Warfare 2 will seemingly mark the end of Call of Duty’s streak of annual releases. Bloomberg reported that Call of Duty’s planned 2023 release has been pushed back to 2024. This lines up with other rumblings saying Call of Duty devs are eager to move away from the annual release schedule.
Microsoft Acquires Activision Blizzard: The Story So Far
Despite Microsoft’s acquisition of Activision Blizzard, Modern Warfare 2 isn’t set to be an Xbox exclusive. According to a report from earlier this year, Activision Blizzard has already committed to releasing three more Call of Duty games across multiple platforms, including PlayStation. After that, however, the series could live exclusively on Xbox.
