As Call of Duty: Vanguard gets its release this Friday, fans of the franchise will at last be able to get their gaming teeth into Activision's latest instalment.
With players bunkering down for those well-loved long autumn and winter evening sessions, even before Vanguard has seen the light of day, however, CoD fans are already eyeing next year's edition of Modern Warfare.
Set to be helmed once more by Infinity Ward, a number of reliable leakers have suggested in recent months that 2022's release will be entitled Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II.
While Activision has yet to confirm this, sources are adamant that Infinity Ward is developing the follow-up to 2019's hugely popular Modern Warfare reboot.
CoD's gaming timeline is somewhat skewed, and next year's game will further muddy the waters, sharing a name with 2009’s Modern Warfare 2, just with Roman numerals instead.
Confused? So are we.
But what is increasingly clear, is that the Modern Warfare II could bring back some of the previous edition's classic maps.
As Twitter leaker @RalphsValve also shared possible news regarding the game’s Narcos-inspired campaign - including its new 'morality' mode - and multiplayer modes, furthermore, it appears that Terminal, Shipment and Quarry will all be making a return.
More excitingly, though, Highrise and Favela are also set for a reboot, meaning players can once more run the slums of Rio de Janeiro; a big hit in the original game.
Other multiplayer modes that could surface include Extraction, Floor is Lava mode and, intriguingly, a Hostage mode, of which details are currently scarce.
The next edition of Modern Warfare, then, is already shaping up nicely, but for now at least, the comforts of Vanguard should keep fans happy.News Now - Sport News
