Activision has officially started teasing Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, stating that the game will usher in a “new era” for Call of Duty. While we wait for more concrete details on the new 2022 entry, let’s break down the rumors and everything we know so far about this year’s return to a modernized Call of Duty.
Call of Duty 2022 Developer, Title and Logo Revealed
Back in February, Activision confirmed Infinity Ward as the developer of the 2022 Call of Duty game. Modern Warfare 2019 was a huge success for Call of Duty, so it’s no surprise that Infinity Ward is returning to the series for its next release. Activision also officially announced the title and logo for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 on April 28.
The animated logo revealed by the Call of Duty Twitter account combines the “M” and the “W” and the “II,” while the included hashtag reads the title as Modern Warfare 2. The logo animation also offers a sneak peek subtle. . As noted on Twitter by Chaosxsilencer, Modern Warfare’s iconic Task Force 141 logo can be seen when he slows down the animation.
Much of Modern Warfare 2019’s post-launch story revolved around Captain Price building his iconic task force from the original series. So while it comes as no surprise, fans can be glad that Captain Price has recruited their favorite Modern Warfare characters once again.
Modern Warfare 2 release date and platforms
An official release date for Modern Warfare 2 has not been revealed, but the expected release date is sometime in the fall of 2022. Previous Call of Duty titles have released between October and November, so it is likely that Modern Warfare 2 of 2022 does the same. There’s a small chance that Vanguard’s poor sales and reception will lead to an earlier-than-expected release, but players should still plan for a typical fall release.
As for what platforms players can expect, journalist and leaker Tom Henderson states that Modern Warfare 2 is coming to current and past-gen consoles, but suggests this could be the last year Call of Duty does so.

The leaker also shared Henderson’s claims about a story centered around a Colombian drug cartel. They also suggested that Modern Warfare 2 multiplayer would include several old maps.
