This announcement puts the rumours about no mainline Call of Duty titles to be launched this year to rest. Earlier, due to a report by Bloomberg, it was rumoured that owing to the poor sales of Call of Duty: Vanguard, Activision could be toying with the idea of skipping this year and launching a new Call of Duty game only in 2023, a rumour which the game publisher had denied in a statement given to TOI Tech-Gadgets Now. Regarding the company’s plan for future Call of Duty games, Activision had said: “We have an exciting slate of premium and free-to-play Call of Duty experiences for this year, next year and beyond. Reports of anything otherwise are incorrect. We look forward to sharing more details when the time is right.”
The new Modern Warfare 2 will be the fifth major entry in the Modern Warfare series of Call of Duty games. Apart from the logo reveal, nothing else is known about the game for now.
Call of Duty Modern Warfare (2019) is one of the most successful games in the Call of Duty franchise. When Call of Duty Modern Warfare launched in 2019, it also brought its battle royale standalone game Warzone that could be played for free. Warzone was an instant smash hit. In the first four days of the game’s launch, around 15 million players had joined it, a number that went to 60 million and kept increasing.
