According to a well-known Call of Duty leaker, the next chapter in the first-person shooter series will be called Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II. With yearly releases since 2003, the military shooter game has transported players to a variety of battlegrounds, both historical and future. According to recent speculations, the Call of Duty game in 2022 will be a successor to 2019’s Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, which brought players to realistic modern battlefields.
Leaker Claims Call of Duty 2022 Title Will Be Modern Warfare II:
Infinity Ward’s Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, released in 2007, was the series’ first game set outside of World War II. Modern Warfare, on the other hand, used a modern-day military scenario, concentrating on a fake Middle Eastern country and a civil war in Russia. The extremely popular sequels, Modern Warfare 2 and Modern Warfare 3, as well as other futuristic shooters such as Call of Duty: Ghosts and Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, followed. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, released in 2019, serves as a reboot of this series segment, bringing back old heroes from previous games while facing a totally new fictitious battle. Rumors suggest that Modern Warfare II may feature drug cartels, which would be a departure from the series’ usual worldwide scale.
Tom Henderson’s Tweet:
Tom Henderson, a video game industry journalist, and leaker on Twitter, has backed up reports that Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II will be the series’ 2022 title. Henderson makes fun of the Modern Warfare sub-series’ plethora of titles in the tweet. The planned sequel to 2019’s Modern Warfare will utilize Roman numerals rather than numbers to differentiate itself from the 2009 sequel. Henderson also mentions that the game’s artwork is very appealing.
I can confirm that the 2022 title is called "Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II"

Fans have long adored Call of Duty’s Modern Warfare sub-series, with 2007 original and its 2019 remake garnering special praise. As of July 2021, there were 2 million active players in Modern Warfare, which is a sizable player base for a two-year-old game. This massive popularity is most likely due to the games’ contemporary setting, with modern conflicts against Russia and the Middle East being far more directly relatable to gamers than other settings such as World War II. This continued love for Infinity Ward and Modern Warfare makes it easy to believe that Modern Warfare II will be released in 2022.
Tom Henderson is a trustworthy source who has revealed information on past Call of Duty games as well as the forthcoming Battlefield 2042. However, unless developers confirm the existence and title of Modern Warfare II, which will not happen until next year, it remains a mere rumor. This rumor may pique the interest of fans of modern-day Call of Duty settings, notably the realm of Modern Warfare, for what lies beyond the World War II battlefields of Call of Duty: Vanguard.
