More details have been released about next year's Call of Duty: Modern Warfare sequel, in a report from VGC, with information on the campaign, multiplayer, and changes coming to Warzone.
VGC previously reported that 2022's Call of Duty will be a sequel to 2019's Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, developed by Infinity Ward, and with a campaign following special forces taking on Columbian drug cartels. The new campaign will reportedly feature more close quarters combat, decision making, as well as improved AI to make enemies react more realistically to gunfire.
As might be expected by now, the release of the next Call of Duty will also see Call of Duty: Warzone getting a new map, and next year, that map will reportedly include plenty of locations from 2009's Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2. These will likely include multiplayer maps like Favela, Quarry, Terminal, and Afghan. It's apparently undecided whether this new MW2 Warzone map will replace the new pacific-based map Caldera which goes live next month, or if it will exist alongside it.
Call of Duty: 2022 will also have a new third mode, which will reportedly be similar to Battlefield 2042's Hazard Zone mode, combining PvP and PvE elements. This apparently could replace Zombies mode for the new game, according to VGC.
We've got about a year to wait for this new Modern Warfare game, however, assuming Activision sticks to its normal release schedule. In the meantime, Call of Duty: Vanguard is launching on 5th November 2021.
