According to the various reports, next year's Call of Duty game will be a sequel to 2019's Modern Warfare. The game is currently codenamed Project Cortez.
This year's Call of Duty game is not even launched yet and we already have rumours about the one that comes in 2022. We already knew of Activision's plans to make a sequel thanks to some earlier leaks but the details have been pretty scarce so far.
However, some details have finally surfaced. Revealed by insider Tom Henderson and corroborated by reliable VGC, the next Call of Duty game after Vanguard will be a sequel to Modern Warfare from 2019. The codename Project Cortez has also leaked via Nvidia GeForce database breach, and both sources confirmed that this codename is indeed a new Call of Duty game that will be Modern Warfare 2.
According to the VGC report , the game will include a campaign "involving US special forces fighting a covert war against Columbian drug cartels."
Like every Call of Duty title, the rumoured Modern Warfare 2 is expected to launch in late 2022, probably during the Holiday season or even earlier. Of course, the developer of the Modern Warfare series, Infinity Ward, will helm the sequel, which is certainly great news for all Call of Duty fans who loved the 2019 title.
And while the reports are coming from reliable sources, we still suggest you take the details with a grain of salt until Activision officially announce it.
