Modern Warfare 2 release date: Everything we know about the upcoming 2022 Call of Duty title

Infinity Ward have announced the release date for the highly anticipated next installment in the Call of Duty franchise.

Titled Modern Warfare 2, the next game is a sequel to the 2019 reboot with iconic characters such as Captain Price returning. It’s not to be confused with the original Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 which was originally released in 2009.

The Call of Duty series is returning to a modern setting, after a brief excursion with 2020’s Call of Duty: Cold War and 2021’s Vanguard, which was set in the Second World War. Modern Warfare 2 is expected to include updates to the popular free-to-play battle royale Warzone but no detail on its release have yet been made.

While the logo and name was formally revealed back in April, the developer has now officially announced its release date and fans will be pleased to know that they won’t have to wait long to get their hands on the upcoming game.

If you want to know when Modern Warfare 2 is being released and what platforms the game will be available on, then keep reading the rest of the article below.
