Infinity Ward confirm Warzone 2 will release in 2022

CoD players are desperate to see what Infinity Ward have in store for ‘Warzone 2.0,’ and the devs have confirmed it arrives this year.



Ghost in CoD Warzone

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 arrives in October 2022, and Infinity Ward have confirmed that Warzone 2.0 will also release later this year.

Infinity Ward return in 2022 with Modern Warfare 2, the highly-anticipated sequel to 2019’s reboot. Alongside bringing together Task Force 141 for the campaign, new multiplayer modes, Spec Ops, and more, they’re also developing ‘Warzone 2.0’ – the sequel to CoD’s hit battle royale.

Warzone 2 will feature the same engine, mechanics, and features as Modern Warfare 2, and players have been desperate to know when it will release. Luckily, Infinity Ward have confirmed that the “evolution in Battle Royale” arrives this year.

There has been a ton of rumors and speculation surrounding Warzone 2’s release date, with many believing that it would launch in March 2023 similar to Warzone’s original release during Modern Warfare Season 2.

Infinity Ward confirmed to CharlieIntel in a creator session that Modern Warfare 2 and Warzone 2 won’t launch together. However, they later revealed that “fans everywhere can look forward to a new Warzone 2.0 experience releasing this year.”

They described how Warzone 2 will be “the evolution in Battle Royale with a brand-new play space.” Players can also expect plenty of post-launch content, including “evolving gameplay with new maps, modes, seasonal events, community celebrations, and more.”

When Warzone 2 will actually release is anybody’s guess at the moment. Warzone Pacific arrived in early December, roughly a month after Vanguard, so we could see a similar timeframe for Warzone 2 and MW2 Season 1.

Modern Warfare 2 brings a ton of new mechanics and gameplay changes including an expanded Gunsmith, water and swimming mechanics, as well as completely overhauled vehicle gameplay – and it’s all shared with Warzone 2.

Warzone 2 will also include the brand-new AI that Infinity Ward have designed for Modern Warfare 2, with Animation Director Mark Grigsby saying that it will make for the “best Warzone experience in a long time.”

Modern Warfare 2 and Warzone 2 are still several months out so in the meantime, be sure to check out everything we know about Vanguard and Warzone Pacific Season 4.

Every confirmed Modern Warfare 2 map so far

Here’s a look at all of the multiplayer maps we’ll see in Modern Warfare 2, thanks to new information from Infinity Ward.



While we currently don’t know what the entire map pool for Call of Duty’s upcoming game will look like, here’s a peek at every confirmed map in Modern Warfare 2 so far.

Prior to the June 8 Modern Warfare 2 gameplay reveal, Charlie Intel was able to get a detailed look at an early version of the game. Infinity Ward showcased several gameplay features like the new Gunsmith system and AI changes.

The devs also provided additional information about Modern Warfare 2 maps during CDL Champs with the reveal of Marina Bay Grand Prix. Here’s everything you need to know about Modern Warfare 2’s maps including their classifications and the confirmed maps so far.

Modern Warfare 2 confirmed 6vs6 maps

Modern Warfare 2 is set to take players around the globe as of October 28. Players can expect their multiplayer experience to include various locations and different landscapes. This year the core multiplayer maps have been designed specifically for 6vs6 gameplay.

This new focus on the 6vs6 design should result in a streamlined experience for players that will lead to intuitive gameplay. Three core maps were revealed during the in-person event:

  • Museum
  • Grand Prix
  • Farm 18 Training Facility

The Museum map is supposedly one of the larger core maps and it will allow players to duke it out within a Spanish museum. Grand Prix was unveiled in-depth on August 7 and players will be able to witness the race track during the beta. The track is inspired by the Singapore Grand Prix Marina Bay Street Circuit.

While we don’t know the exact location of the Farm 18 Training Facility map, this one is set to deliver on high-octane action as players battle it out inside of a training facility as the name would suggest.

Modern Warfare 2 confirmed battle maps

Aside from core 6vs6 maps, Modern Warfare 2 will also deliver larger maps for modes such as Ground War. These specific large maps will be called battle maps in Modern Warfare 2. These battle maps will share POIs with the new Warzone 2 map that is set to release in 2022.

Sariff Bay will bring players to a fishing village where you’ll be able to explore the surrounding waters and benefit from the brand-new swimming mechanic. Meanwhile, Sa’id was designed for urban combat and it is said to combine elements of core map and battle map gameplay.

When more Modern Warfare 2 maps are announced we’ll be sure to provide the details so be sure to check back in!

Modern Warfare 2’s Grand Prix map has cheeky easter egg from developers

Modern Warfare 2’s devs, Infinity Ward, have included some cheeky easter eggs in the Marina Bay Grand Prix map.



Alongside the multiplayer reveal and beta dates announcement at CDL Champs, Infinity Ward revealed the Marina Bay Grand Prix map. Eagle-eyed players will have noticed some Infinity Ward devs make an appearance on the map.

Maps can make or break a Call of Duty game, but Modern Warfare 2 fans are especially excited to play the upcoming Marina Bay Grand Prix map that was revealed at CDL Champs 2022.

Heavily inspired by the Singapore Grand Prix’s Marina Bay Street Circuit, Modern Warfare 2 players will get to experience the map in September’s beta. But in the footage already shown, players have found a cheeky easter egg from Infinity Ward.

As spotted by The Loadout, several Infinity Ward devs exist inside the Modern Warfare 2 universe as Formula One drivers. The paddock is shown throughout the map overview and the in-universe drivers are named on the signs above the garages.

Plus, there’s one more Infinity Ward dev name, Hancock, that can be spotted throughout the video, such as on the right-hand side of the souvenir kiosk at 20 seconds, and is likely another team alongside ‘Rohan.’

Five names can be spotted throughout the 40-second clip, and they all relate to an Infinity Ward dev. Here’s everyone spotted so far:

  • Steve Najera – Senior Producer
  • Paul Interrante – Environment Art Director
  • Carlos Cervantes – Senior Environment Artist
  • Matt Evans – Environment Artist
  • Charles Hancock – Associate Producer

Judging from the video, the rest of the garages in the paddock aren’t in use so that might not be all of the devs that exist as drivers. But, we’ll get a much better look at the map once the beta goes live in September, where there’s sure to be even more easter eggs to discover.

Players share Call of Duty Next reveal wishlist for Modern Warfare 2 & Warzone 2

With the Call of Duty Next event set to showcase MW2 and Warzone 2, players reveal exactly what they’re desperate to see.



The upcoming Call of Duty Next event is set to deliver a full Modern Warfare 2 multiplayer reveal as well as new Warzone 2 information. Here’s what players are desperate to see from the event.

During Call of Duty Champs, the biggest competitive CoD event of the year, Activision and Infinity Ward brought Call of Duty Next to the community’s attention. This one-of-a-kind event that will be broadcast on September 15 is set to tease the future of the Call of Duty franchise.

The event will include a full Modern Warfare 2 multiplayer reveal, as well as new details concerning the Warzone 2 project and a mobile version of Warzone. With a ton of new information expected to shock the community, here’s what players are hoping to see most.

CharlieIntel took to Twitter to ask CoD players what they’re hoping to see from the highly-anticipated Call of Duty Next broadcast. While the details concerning Warzone 2 are shrouded in mystery, it’s safe to expect gameplay footage of Modern Warfare 2.

Keep in mind that Modern Warfare 2 is set to release on October 28, and with all eyes on Call of Duty Next, it’ll be a great opportunity to build some excitement. Some players in the replies had very specific expectations, while others wish to see more of the game’s technical aspects.

MW2 & Warzone 2 gun mechanism & gunsmith system

This is a great example of the technical side of Modern Warfare 2, and by expected association Warzone 2, that we’ve yet to fully discover. Gun mechanisms and how they feel while firing lay the groundwork for the game’s tone. Modern Warfare 2 Gameplay will likely be heavily influenced by how intuitive the guns feel in players’ hands.

Furthermore, the loadouts and the gunsmith feature are another vital technical aspect. While these aren’t the flashiest concerns, they go a long way in setting the foundation for a high-quality experience. After all, players love to customize and tweak aspects of the game when they’re not engaged in battle.

While we already have some major information about Modern Warfare 2’s gunsmith, including the ability to tweak certain attachment characteristics, hopefully, Call of Duty Next will provide even more insight.

Modern Warfare 2 Ranked Play

While the gameplay is set to take center stage, it’s not beyond belief that Call of Duty Next could showcase various game modes. Perhaps the broadcast will mark the official reveal of the rumored DMZ mode.

However, fans of multiplayer will have their fingers crossed for something they’ve been wanting for what seems like ages: “League play at launch.”

Call of Duty fans looking for a top-tier competitive mode have been let down in recent years. Either they’ve had to wait months after release to receive a Ranked Play mode, or in the case of Modern Warfare, it came without Skill Divisions or an ELO system.

Classic Call of Duty weapons

FaZe Testy replying with an image of the iconic Intervention sniper gives us a specific weapon request. Surely, the Modern Warfare 2 multiplayer reveal is going to include gameplay footage. Of course, with gameplay footage comes the inevitable reveal of weapons.

It remains to be seen if classic Call of Duty weapons will feature in Modern Warfare 2, but players are surely going to lose their minds if the Intervention makes its way to the game. The Sniper is undoubtedly one of the most beloved weapons in Call of Duty history.

That just about wraps up some of the most intriguing hopes and wishes for the upcoming Call of Duty Next event. Don’t forget to tune into the broadcast on September 15 to find out if any of these desires come to fruition.
