Now that Modern Warfare 2 is officially confirmed, players are desperate to see what Infinity Ward has cooked up for 2022. Reporter Jeff Grub and industry insider Tom Henderson have revealed the potential gameplay reveal date and it’s soon.
The highly anticipated sequel to 2019’s Modern Warfare, Modern Warfare 2, was officially announced after being shown to NFL Draft prospects at the end of April. While there are plenty of leaks and rumors, we haven’t seen any gameplay yet.
Reporter Jeff Grub and industry insider Tom Henderson have now leaked the potential reveal date for Modern Warfare 2, as well as the multiplayer reveal later in the year.
Modern Warfare 2 reveal date leak
On May 13, reporter Jeff Grubb tweeted a list of upcoming reveals in 2022. According to this list, the Modern Warfare 2 reveal could take place on the week of June 6, which lines up with June 9’s Summer Games Fest 2022.
It’s possible that we might see the gameplay reveal during the event. However, this is just a leak, so take it with a grain of salt. That said, Grubb has accurately leaked information in the past, so this could be true.
This report also matches with Tom Henderson’s claims that Modern Warfare 2 is expected to be revealed sometime in early June, with the multiplayer reveal rumored for August.
Henderson claims that early June’s initial reveal is “expected to be in the form of a standardized reveal trailer,” with “campaign footage.” This would fit the Summer Game Fest event perfectly.
While the Modern Warfare series’ campaigns are held in high regard, it’s multiplayer that keeps most CoD fans coming back year after year. Henderson’s sources have also suggested that Modern Warfare 2’s multiplayer will be revealed in August, but this is far from guaranteed.
While this seems promising, it’s worth keeping in mind that this is still just speculation based on leaked information, so nothing is confirmed until we get an official announcement from the developers.
Be sure to stay tuned to CharlieIntel, as we’ll be the first to let you know when a date is officially confirmed.

Modern Warfare 2 MP Map images leak via CoD Warzone Mobile files
First images of Modern Warfare 2 Multiplayer maps have leaked via Call of Duty: Warzone Mobile game files, including Ground War maps.
First images of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2’s multiplayer maps have leaked from being included in the Call of Duty: Warzone Mobile Closed Alpha build, which released in select testing regions under NDA in May.
The Warzone Mobile, also known as Project Aurora, is in closed alpha testing, but as users get hands on with the different builds on iOS and Android, they’ve found a batch of Modern Warfare 2, and even Treyarch’s Call of Duty 2024, content in the files.
The images in the files are that of each map’s loading screen image. Activision is sending DMCA and copyright notices over these images, so will not be hosting the images on the site. The Warzone Mobile Closed Alpha is under signed NDA, with no gameplay or imagery allowed to be shared from it.
The leaker on Twitter claims to have access to many of the loading screens for Modern Warfare 2 multiplayer maps and has a posted a few 6v6 map images, along with some Ground War map images.
Modern Warfare 2 Maps Leak
The first map shown is called ‘Grand Prix,’ which was confirmed to be a map in June as part of the game’s reveal. Grand Prix is set in Asia.
Oilfeld is the second map. This looks to take place in a desert landscape area.
The third map that the leaker has posted is Museum. This map has the most colors, from the imagery shown, and supports a variety of play styles.
The fourth map was only mentioned by its code name, SABA. Information on this map beyond its images are not known at this time, nor is its final release name confirmed.
Another map revealed is ‘Farm 18.’
Modern Warfare 2 Ground War Maps Images
The leaker has also shared images of 2 Modern Warfare 2 Ground War MP Maps.
The first Ground War map leaked is Hydro, which takes place in desert landscape with water flowing through the center. As confirmed by Infinity Ward, Modern Warfare 2 and Warzone 2 engine supports swimming, which means maps will feature areas of water.
The next map for Ground War leaked is ‘Fishtown.’
The third Ground War map is Sira.
As previously mentioned by Infinity Ward, the Ground War maps will come together to form the new Warzone 2 map.
Modern Warfare 2 MP Map Codenames
In addition, the leaker also shared a list of the codenames for all of the MP maps currently in the files for Modern Warfare 2 MP.

Some of the maps are leftover from Modern Warfare 2019, while the rest are code names, or ship names, for the 2022 game. Here are the names found:
- esports gym
- firing range
- floating bay
- grand prix
- mountain town
- yellow castle
- Swap Meet
Activision has not commented on why the Warzone Mobile’s files contains all of these Modern Warfare 2 images . The company will issue DMCA notices to anyone who posts all of the leaks across the internet.
So far, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 MP has not been officially revealed beyond a few details. No timeline for the MP reveal is known. Activision has confirmed that there will be an Open Beta ahead of the game’s launch.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 officially launches October 28 across PlayStation, Xbox, and PC (Battle.net and Steam).
Stay tuned for the latest updates on Modern Warfare 2 and Warzone 2 as launch approaches.
Modern Warfare 2 fans think game could get custom modes with Steam Workshop
Modern Warfare 2 could offer Steam Workshop support, allowing players to create custom modes to share with others.
CoD players are beginning to believe that Modern Warfare 2 could offer custom modes created by fans, after a user spotted a hint that the game will support Steam Workshop on PC.
For the first time since the early 2000s, there will be no Call of Duty title in 2023 after Treyarch’s next project was pushed back by a year. This means that Modern Warfare 2 will have to keep players occupied for twice as long as usual.
According to one eagle-eyed player, fan-made modes could be a way of extending Modern Warfare 2’s longevity, as they noticed a hint that the game could feature Steam Workshop support.
Steam Workshop is part of Valve’s service where players can share mods and custom creations for their favorite games that support the feature. According to Reddit user AnotherGibaway, Modern Warfare 2 could be one of these games when it launches in Novmember.
They claimed that they were following the game on Steam, meaning they receive a notification when mods are released on Steam Workshop, and they received one recently for Modern Warfare 2.
The OP said: “Only games that are being planned to receive Workshop support or already have it implemented receive the ‘Workshop items posted this week’ updates. I just saw this for MWII.
“You’ll have to take my word as I don’t have any way to prove this obviously, but if you’re following the game, go on your community home page and see if you get it.”
Mods are a popular way to breathe new life into a game, allowing the community to get creative and share new, interesting features with one another. This is why a series like Halo introduced Custom Games to let players experiment with wacky ideas.
As another poster pointed out, with Infinity Ward reportedly working on an Escape From Tarkov-inspired mode called DMZ instead, fans could even make their own Zombies mode through Steam Workshop.
For now, this is all just speculation until the developers confirm that mods will be supported. But there’s no doubt that Steam Workshop could be an interesting method of letting players engage with Modern Warfare 2 in a different way.
