We know Call of Duty as a franchise that doesn’t skip a single year without a new installment. Now that CoD has diversified its games under one name, it makes sense to see new titles more frequently. Exactly so it happens in 2022. Two of the games within the franchise, namely Modern Warfare and Warzone, are to receive sequels later this year.

On February 11, Activision published a post in its blog where it stated that this year the company would publish a direct sequel to 2019’s Call of Duty: Modern Warfare. When describing the new Warzone experience, Activision mentions so many changes that it will probably mean not just an update to the existing Battle Royale game but an introduction of a brand new one that will coexist with the old.

What will be new in this game? In short, everything. The developers want to build the new installment upon a completely new engine, reshape the experience of Battle Royale as a genre within Warzone, and a new sandbox mode. This may be a great innovation for those already on next-gen consoles because obviously the game will be developed for these ones primarily. Versions for last-gen consoles and old PC will probably lack lots of visual luxury. Along with this, Activision continues to support its good old Vanguard game, launching the next season soon.

As for the new titles, they will pop up not that soon. The new Modern Warfare installment will probably appear in late 2022 if Infinity Ward does everything in time. Maybe the new Warzone will appear a bit sooner or later to avoid cannibalizing each other’s sales.

Which Call of Duty installment is your favorite? What do you think the franchise lacks now, and what has it got right? Will you buy the next game immediately, or will you rather wait for reviews and bug fixes? Let’s talk about it in the comments below!
