In a stream of quick announcements in April, the Call of Duty came forward and formally announced the arrival of Modern Warfare II. Similar to the 2019 release of Modern Warfare, Modern Warfare II will be in a rebooted continuity and act as a sequel to the 2019 release. Following the formal announcement, when is the release date for Modern Warfare II?
When will Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 release?
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II is set for a release date of October 28. This tracks with Call of Duty titles traditionally release near the end of the year, usually in early November, but more recently in late October like with 2019’s Modern Warfare. We’ve seen a logo and some character art; we imagine that this title from Infinity Ward is a greater effort, considering that an updated Warzone (straight up called “Warzone 2.0”) will launch after Modern Warfare II.
There were multiple changes to the reboot of Modern Warfare, and we imagine we’ll be seeing many of those same modifications taking shape in Modern Warfare II. At the end of Modern Warfare, we see Captain Price and CIA handler Kate Laswell sitting together to discuss an upcoming operation where they’d be working with General Shepherd. Then, Price pulls out three folders describing people he’d like to bring him: Sgt. Kyle Garrick (Gaz), John MacTavish (Soap), and Simon Riley (Ghost) are all characters who appeared in the original Modern Warfare 2 story.
No exact details on the story have been shared, but keen fans have already taken notice of the Task Force 141 logo in the animated Modern Warfare II trailer. We’ll likely see a similar storyline to the original 2009 Modern Warfare 2 game, but there will be multiple changes and some new twists awaiting fans.
