Call of Duty 2022 will be a sequel, the first rumors

Call of Duty 2022 will be a sequel

The new Call of Duty Vanguard has not yet come out and the first rumors about what we know today as Call of Duty 2022 are starting to come out. Obviously it is very early to know the future of the saga, but there are those who seem to have half an idea.

We are obviously talking about the well-known journalist and insider Tom Henderson, who recently made it known that, apparently , the next Call of Duty 2022 would be known by the code name of Project Cortez.

The information shared through his Twitter profile does not end there, with Henderson emphasizing how Call of Duty 2022 should be a sequel to the Modern Warfare released in 2019.

It's expected to be a sequel to Modern Warfare 2019.

It is still early to understand whether the well-known journalist will be right or not, but according to Henderson's almost entirely spot-on precedents, these first statements on the COD of the 2022 may also be true. At the moment, however, we advise you to take everything with a grain of salt.

If you haven't done so yet, you can book your copy of COD Vanguard on Amazon at this address.

What you need to know
  • Infinity Ward and Activision launched Call of Duty: Modern Warfare in 2019.
  • According to leaker Tom Henderson and outlet VGC, the 2022 Call of Duty entry is a sequel to Call of Duty: Modern Warfare.
  • The campaign focuses on special forces fighting Columbian drug cartels.
  • This news comes as Activision-Blizzard faces a lawsuit regarding sexist workplace behavior and abuse.
  • Infinity Ward's last Call of Duty title was the 2019 reboot of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare. Now, it appears that a Call of Duty: Modern Warfare sequel is coming in 2022. According to Battlefield leaker Tom Henderson, the 2022 Call of Duty will be a sequel to Modern Warfare, information corroborated by VGC.

    Infinity Ward parent company Activision-Blizzard is facing a lawsuit, alleging the company allowed systemic sexist workplace behavior and abuse. Some steps have been taken, with the removal of the game director on Diablo 4 and other employees.

    This 2022 game, codenamed Project Cortez, supposedly features a campaign that focuses on U.S. special forces taking on Columbian drug cartels. This codename appears to be a reference to the 1994 film Clear and Present Danger, which features Colonel Félix Cortez as a villain.

    If this report is true, this shouldn't come as too much of a surprise. Every studio in the Activision umbrella is currently working on the Call of Duty franchise to some extent. The 2021 entry in the annual franchise, Call of Duty: Vanguard, is being led by Sledgehammer Games, with Treyarch working on a Zombies mode, Raven Software on an update to Call of Duty: Warzone and additional support work being handled by studios like Activision Shanghai and Toys for Bob.

    While Sledgehammer and Infinity Ward do share technology, Infinity Ward is the only team not directly working on Vanguard and will have a full three-year cycle to develop its new game. In our preview of Call of Duty: Vanguard multiplayer, we found that there are some interesting new modes but a lot of questions regarding the foundation of the game.
