Warzone 2 is officially on the way but so far, we only have leaks and rumors to go on. The latest leak from TheGhostOfHope claims that Warzone 2’s “new, big map” will be heavily inspired by a real-life location.

Although it’s officially confirmed that Warzone 2.0 is in development, neither Infinity Ward nor Raven Software have revealed any details. Instead, leaks and rumors have been steadily released, teasing that Warzone 2 will be a ‘clean slate’ without any previous weapons or Operators, and could be set in the desert.

Now, renowned Call of Duty leaker TheGhostOfHope has claimed that Warzone 2’s map will take heavy inspiration from a real-life location, and it appears to tie in with details already leaked about 2022’s Modern Warfare 2.

Tweeting on April 23, TheGhostOfHope claimed: “The Warzone 2 map will heavily take inspiration from Medellin, Colombia.”

Medellín is the capital of Colombia’s Antioquia region, situated in the Andes mountain range. The area is filled with mountains and valleys, and the city itself has tall skyscrapers and dense urban areas.

According to VGC, Modern Warfare 2 will focus on “US special forces fighting a covert war against Colombian drug cartels.” Verdansk, Warzone’s original map, featured in Modern Warfare’s campaign so it’s entirely possible that Warzone 2 will connect to MW2 in a similar way.

TheGhostOfHope previously speculated that it would be set in Chile’s Atacama desert after “seeing a POI of an observatory.” They didn’t give any more info, but said: “I know more about the WZ2 map than I can say but it’s definitely in Central America.”

Of course, these are all just leaks for now. There’s no guarantee that Warzone 2’s map will be heavily influenced by Medellín, and we’re likely still several months out from its reveal.

We got new details about Modern Warfare 2 through official key artwork that was previously leaked, only for players to mistake it as being fake.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 has been the subject of much speculation, with most of the information about the game being revealed through leaks, including the early PlayStation beta and details about the multiplayer.

We finally received some confirmed information when the developers announced the official release date through an artwork reveal. However, it turns out that this information had been leaked early, only for everyone to deem it fake.

On May 23, Reddit user ‘TacticalMongoose’ shared an image of promotional material found in the port of L.A, claiming that it was from the Modern Warfare sequel that’s currently in development.

This post was soon deleted by the moderators of the Call of Duty subreddit, and this led to players assuming that the leaks were probably fake. However, this leak was later verified by the developers themselves.

After announcing the official release date, the Call of Duty team shared artwork featuring all the new and returning characters in Modern Warfare 2, including the same Ghost image that was previously leaked.

Many of the commenters found this revelation amusing, and one user wrote: “Lmao, it got removed by the mods. Even though it was 100% legit.” Another player commented: “They called you a mad man.”

Aside from Ghost, the official artwork also gave us a look at other characters that will be present in the highly-anticipated Modern Warfare sequel, including Price, Gaz, Soap, and Alejandro.

While details about Modern Warfare 2 are currently scarce, we expect more information about the game to be officially revealed as the game’s October 28 release date draws near.

Warzone 2 map & Modern Warfare 2 DMZ map revealed by leak

A new Modern Warfare 2 leak claims to show off the brand-new map that will feature in both Warzone 2 and the Tarkov-inspired DMZ.

Industry insider Tom Henderson claims to have recreated Warzone 2 and Modern Warfare 2’s ‘DMZ’ map, showing its general layout and POI locations.

A ton of leaks and rumors surrounding Modern Warfare 2 and Warzone 2 have dropped over the past couple of weeks detailing Warzone 2’s new mechanics, the classic Modern Warfare 2 maps arriving as POIs, and the DMZ’s marketplace with tradeable items.

Now, after leaker TheMW2Ghost showed a portion of the map that will reportedly be shared between both Warzone 2 and the Escape from Tarkov-inspired DMZ, Tom Henderson has recreated the full map showing its POIs.

Rather than showing off an in-game image of what they claim to be the DMZ and Warzone 2’s map, Tom Henderson has revealed “what the official Warzone 2 map currently looks like via a drawing.”

In this drawing posted to Try Hard Guides, we can see that the map is set to be on the coast similar to Verdansk, featuring coastal POIs that could use the swimming mechanic that Henderson previously leaked.

While this drawing doesn’t reveal the size of the map, Henderson said “it does seem bigger than that of Verdansk and Caldera, especially considering if the grid reference is accurate.”

Henderson has also marked the portion of the map that TheMW2Ghost previously showed off. Their map didn’t give a ton of detail, but it shows what appears to be roads or train tracks passing through the map. Also, there’s a large river cutting through the middle of the map, with a lake on the eastern side.

There are a few icons on TheMW2Ghost’s drawing, but we’re not sure what they mean. The locks could indicate the Strongholds that both YouTuber NerosCinema and Henderson claim will allow players to get their loadouts, but there’s no guarantee.

Previous leaks have indicated that this map will be based in Central America, taking inspiration from Medellín, Colombia, but the recreation doesn’t confirm this one way or the other.

Of course, this is just a leak for now so there’s no guarantee that this is what Warzone 2 and the DMZ’s map will look like. We expect to hear more from Activision and Infinity Ward later this year, so stay tuned.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 finally has a release date, and players are desperate to get their hands on the sequel as soon as possible. CoD games usually feature a beta ahead of the full release, so here’s everything we know about Modern Warfare 2’s multiplayer beta.

After months of leaks and rumors, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2’s release date was officially confirmed, with players getting to check in with Task Force 141 on October 28, 2022. But, players usually get to experience a portion of the multiplayer in beta ahead of launch.

Here’s everything we know about whether Modern Warfare 2 will have a multiplayer beta, and if PlayStation players will still get early access following Microsoft’s acquisition of Activision Blizzard.

Does Modern Warfare 2 have a multiplayer beta?

While nothing has been confirmed by Activision, it appears that Modern Warfare 2 will have a multiplayer beta after the game’s editions leaked through the Vanguard Season 3 Reloaded update’s game files.

Alongside leaking the Cross-Gen, Standard, and Vault Editions, these game files revealed that pre-ordering the game would grant “Early access to the Open Beta – first on PS4 & PS5.”

Is there a Modern Warfare 2 beta release date?

Modern Warfare 2’s multiplayer beta doesn’t have a release date yet, but Infinity Ward should give a date once they officially confirm the game’s editions and pre-order bonuses.

With Modern Warfare 2 confirmed for October 28, we would expect the multiplayer beta to go live a couple of months before launch, towards late summer or early fall. But, stay tuned for any official updates from Activision or Infinity Ward.

Why is Modern Warfare 2 beta on PlayStation first?

Although Microsoft are in the process of acquiring Activision Blizzard, the deal hasn’t gone through yet so Sony’s marketing deal with Call of Duty still stands — meaning Modern Warfare 2’s beta will likely hit PlayStation consoles first.

Thanks to this deal, PlayStation players have had early access to alphas and betas, exclusive modes, more create-a-class slots, and free cosmetics in Combat Packs.

Whether Xbox players will receive similar benefits when the acquisition goes through remains to be seen, but it appears Modern Warfare 2 will be the last CoD game to bring PlayStation-exclusive benefits.
