Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 Release Date Confirmed For October – What We Know So Far

Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 will be released this October 28.

In addition, the over-the-top video clip gave a sneak peak at some of the characters and potentially the cover art for the upcoming sequel.

Not content with a simple cover reveal and release date, Activision revealed the key art for Modern Warfare 2 by putting an oversized version of the image on a shipping boat and having it docked to combine into the full image.

The key art features an operator with a skull mask. But unlike the grim and gray look of the first Modern Warfare reboot, Modern Warfare 2 is going for a neon green look. Check out the full key art below.

Activision Blizzard officially announced Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 earlier this year. The annual franchise will be handled by Infinity Ward this year and will be a sequel to the 2019 reboot. Early details say that Modern Warfare 2 will center around U.S. special forces fighting the Colombian drug cartel.This could also be the last annual Call of Duty game as it was reported that 2023’s Call of Duty game will be released in 2024 and that the series may no longer be an annual franchise following Microsoft’s acquisition of Activision Blizzard.RELATED: Gotham Knights Video Game

Otherwise, the teaser is a drone-captured look at real-world artwork featuring operators Captain John Price, Ghost, John “Soap” MacTavish, Kyle “Gaz” Garrick, and newcomer Colonel Alejandro Vargas of the Mexican Special Forces. There’s no gameplay.

Modern Warfare 2 is a direct sequel to 2019’s Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, Infinity Ward’s reboot of the sub-brand that started in 2007 with Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare. The 2019 Modern Warfare is the most successful Call of Duty title to date, Activision has said. In April, Activision revealed the title and logo for the new Call of Duty, which is (officially) titled Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II, to differentiate it from the game of a very similar name released in 2009.

A new premium Call of Duty game isn’t the only shooter Activision has planned for the franchise this year; a new Warzone game, a “built from the ground-up,” free-to-play shooter with battle royale elements, is also coming in 2022. The original Call of Duty: Warzone was released in March 2020, and was part of the previous Modern Warfare’s season 2 content. Since then, Activision and developer Raven Software have updated Warzone with content from Call of Duty: Black Ops: Cold War and Call of Duty: Vanguard.

However, reports also suggest that Activision Blizzard is committed to keeping the next three Call of Duty games multiplatform.
