In perhaps one of the most obvious leaks to date, sources this week have reported that next year’s Call of Duty title will be a sequel to Modern Warfare (2019). Typically, each major Call of Duty studio takes a three year cycle for development, so 2022 would certainly be the right time for Infinity Ward to return.
Apparently the game’s plot centres around a US special forces unit fighting against Columbian drug cartels. The game’s project codename is said to be linked to the movie Clear & Present Danger, which features a character named Felix Cortez.
That’s all the information we have for now and it will be quite some time before Activision confirms this. After all, Call of Duty: Vanguard was only just revealed a month ago and is currently on track to enter open beta this month, followed by a full launch in November.
KitGuru says: Given the predictable cycle for Call of Duty, it makes sense that we’ll be returning to Modern Warfare in 2022.
