While we already know that Call of Duty: Warzone 2 is being developed currently by Activision, the studio reaffirmed that the sequel to the smash hit free-to-play battle royale is still locked in for this year. Not only that, but it’ll be “tightly integrated” with this year’s premium Call of Duty game, Modern Warfare 2.

In the company’s latest quarterly financial report, made a note of the two games’ relationship, and even mentioned that the battle royale sequel will launch as an “extension” of the Modern Warfare universe.

  • The fourth quarter will usher in a new era for the Call of Duty franchise. Anticipation is high for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II, planned for release on console and PC on October 28. The sequel to 2019’s Modern Warfare®, the most successful Call of Duty title to date, will lead the most ambitious rollout yet across the franchise. An all-new Call of Duty: Warzone 2.0 experience, tightly integrated with the premium game, will launch as an extension of the Modern Warfare universe later this year.

Of course, one can argue that the other Call of Duty games such as Black Ops Cold War and Vanguard were also “tightly integrated” into Warzone. However Infinity Ward and Raven Software ties the two up, let’s hope it lives up to the hype, and is a worthy sequel.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 is set to launch this October 28 on the PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S and PC.

Stay tuned for more Call of Duty news, as the publisher’s earnings call will wrap up today, too.
