Call of Duty 2022 Will Be a Modern Warfare Sequel About Colombian Drug Cartels

We know that Call of Duty: Vanguard and its Warzone Pacific map will be released this year, but what else coming next? The next game’s codename is ‘Project Cortez’, and it will be a follow-up to Modern Warfare 2. It appears that Infinity Ward will once again be responsible for the game’s development.

Tom Henderson is an Insider of Activision who confirmed the sequel in Twitter.

On a datamined list of GeForce Now games published this week, Infinity Ward was listed as the developer.

People familiar with Activision’s plans say the sequel to Modern Warfare will feature a covert war between US special forces and Columbian drug cartels. It’s also the premise of the 1994 Harrison Ford film Clear and Present Danger, whose main villain is Colonel Félix Cortez, which could be a possible connection to Modern Warfare 2.

Call of Duty has been handled by Treyarch, Raven and Sledgehammer since the 2019 release, so Modern Warfare developer Infinity Ward will have had three years to prepare its sequel.

According to a recent press release from Activision, the entire Call of Duty franchise is currently in development.

Vanguard will be the latest entry in the blockbuster series, and eight of Activision’s 10 core studios will be contributing to the game or Warzone, which is a free-to-play version of Vanguard. As all of Activision’s core studios are now working on Call of Duty, but which doesn’t preclude them from working on other projects as well if they choose.

Activision also announced last month the creation of an internal mobile studio, which is currently working on a new Call of Duty game. Call of Duty employs an estimated 2,000 people, and Activision Blizzard is currently on a massive hiring spree to increase its development resources.
