Release date

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II is set to launch on October 28, 2022. This follows Infinity Ward’s typical release schedule for its Call of Duty titles. This will be a sequel to the 2019 game, not a remake of the 2009 title of the same name. Since Modern Warfare 2019 was so successful critically and commercially, it’s a no-brainer Activision is following it up with a sequel.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II Trailer

On June 8, 2022, Activision released the first-ever trailer for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II, which you can watch above.

It only features cinematic footage, but it does give us a sense of the overall tone and themes. The game seems to be steering away from traditional bombastic military combat with a greater focus on smaller-scale battles — at least based on what was shown during the trailer.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II Gameplay

The gameplay will be fluid and fast, and will likely mirror Modern Warfare 2019, with a story mode and multiplayer suite to enjoy. In addition to gameplay, this entry will also include a similar battle pass progression system just like the last few COD games.

The campaign will supposedly be centered on Colombian drug cartels and will feature many new features from 2019’s release, according to VGC. The gameplay will be fluid and fast, and will likely mirror Modern Warfare 2019, with a story mode and multiplayer suite to enjoy. In addition to gameplay, this entry will also include a similar battle pass progression system just like the last few COD games.

Multiplayer

Multiplayer is at the heart of the COD experience, and this next installment will be no different. It will follow in the footsteps of Modern Warfare 2019, with various maps, modes, and free post-launch content to enjoy. It will include familiar modes but will also offer new variations of modes you might be familiar with. For instance, Knockout is similar to Gunfight, with an elimination mechanic that requires players to capture a package. As revealed during Call of Duty: Next, this instalment will feature a brand new Gunsmith that will hopefully eliminate the need to grind as much. The new Gunsmith will offer universal attachments that work for all weapons. For instance, unlocking an Optic or Muzzle for one weapon will unlock it for other firearms, while each weapon will still require you to earn certain attachments, as well.

Beyond that, a new mode called Invasion will feature large-scale Team Deathmatch battles on massive maps, which will feature enemy AI. This game and Warzone 2.0 are leaning toward using AI bots a bit more, likely to appeal to more casual players.

Swimming will also play a larger role on certain Multiplayer maps. You’ll be able to use water as cover — sort of. Water will impact the trajectory of a bullet, adding an interesting layer to the standard “boots on the ground” gameplay.
