A sequel to Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, released in 2019, is set to release at the end of 2022.
That is what the generally reliable insider Tom Henderson claims to have heard. VGC also reports that it has also heard this from their sources.
“It appears that Call of Duty: 2022 is codenamed Project Cortez. It is expected to be a sequel to Modern Warfare 2019,” Henderson said on Twitter.
Project Cortez appeared earlier this week on a list of GeForce Now games leaked by a datamine. Nvidia said that the list of games, which also includes games like Gears 6, a remaster of Half-Life 2 and God of War for PC, does indeed come from them, but that the games on the list offer no indication of actual releases. .
According to VGC sources, the Modern Warfare sequel should include a campaign in which American commandos fight Colombian drug cartels. This is also the plot of the 1994 film Clear and Present Danger, in which the main enemy is a character called Colonel Félix Cortez – possibly the code name of the game has been derived from this.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, released in 2019, is developed by Infinity Ward, last year’s Black Ops Cold War, released by Treyarch and Raven Software, and Call of Duty: Vanguard, which is due to be released later this year, is being developed by Sledgehammer Games. It is therefore in line with the expectation that the possible sequel to Modern Warfare will be made by Infinity Ward again.
Activision has not yet confirmed the above rumors. It’s likely that won’t happen until next year, as the company is targeting Vanguard this year.
