Although Call of Duty’s 2022 installment has not been officially revealed, facts about the game have been leaked multiple times over the last few months. According to reports, Infinity Ward will develop the game, which will act as a direct sequel to 2019’s Call of Duty: Modern Warfare– but when can we expect to see something of it in an official capacity?

Call of Duty Rumors on Twitter

Tom Henderson, a noted insider who has been at the forefront of the majority of Call of Duty leaks (among other things), recently took to Twitter to claim that, as is customary, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 (or whatever it ends up being called) will be revealed this summer. Having said that, it appears as though the game may launch a little sooner than anticipated. While Call of Duty games are typically released in November, this year’s game will reportedly be released in October “as a result of Vanguard’s poor sales performance.” A “massive” upgrade for Call of Duty: Warzone is expected to arrive shortly thereafter.

Conflicts In the Gaming Industry Are Real!

While Call of Duty: Vanguard’s sales have been strong in isolation when compared to other games in the franchise, the game’s commercial performance has suffered a significant decline for a variety of reasons. The last time a Call of Duty game launched before November was Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, which launched in October 2018 – albeit this was done to prevent conflict with Red Dead Redemption 2’s November 2018 release.

Numerous more facts regarding this year’s Call of Duty game have leaked, including a new PvPvE mode akin to Battlefield 2042’s Hazard Zone, the news that actor Warren Kole, who played Uncharted 4 villain Rafe, will also appear in the game and the game’s possible setting in Latin America.

When will Call of Duty fans be able to enjoy the new game? We will wait and see.
