Activision Blizzard is currently working on a 2022 installment for the Call of Duty franchise, which will see the return of classic Modern Warfare 2 maps, according to Tom Henderson, a leaker. This leak comes after another leak said that the next Call of Duty title is expected to be a sequel to 2019’s Modern Warfare.
To recall, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 was released in 2009 as a sequel to Call of Duty 4. At the time, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 was known as one of the best multiplayer shooters out there, praising its gameplay, mechanics and systems. The game was distinguished by its distinctive maps, such as Rust, which have also made an appearance in later installments of the game series.
Henderson, in a video, sheds light on the 2022 Call of Duty installment. Apart from the news of the return of classic Modern Warfare 2 maps, he also shared details on several aspects that players should know about the upcoming title. These include campaign information, a reason for the cancellation of Modern Warfare 2 Remastered Multiplayer, and new DMZ game modes receiving expanded versions of classic Modern Warfare 2 maps.
According to Henderson, the DMZ mode is built from scratch and will feature an overhauled AI system along with PvP and PvE.
While the maps will be making a return, it is still unknown whether the game will bring back some classic Call of Duty features. Players have expressed their desire for the return of the prestige and progression system, and the create-a-class system, which is missing from recent entries.
The game will reportedly release in the latter half of the year and until then we recommend that you take all leaks and reports with a grain of salt.
Call of Duty 2022 will be a Modern Warfare 2 remaster after major details were leaked that first appeared on BGR India.
