Call of Duty: Vanguard has yet to launch later this week, and we’re already getting rumours and reports about 2022’s Call of Duty instalment, which is heavily rumoured to be a direct sequel to 2019’s Call of Duty: Modern Warfare. Reliable leaker Tom Henderson has revealed several new details about the upcoming game, including some story points and a boost in violence.

According to Henderson (via Video Games Chronicle), Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 will see the previous game’s protagonists from Task Force 141 return, this time taking on Columbian drug cartels. Henderson states that the game will take a darker turn, reportedly being heavily inspired by two gritty films, Sicario and No Country For Old Men. AI will receive a significant boost, meaning it will have a greater impact on its violence and the ways enemies react to situations.

Henderson’s sources claim that many new features will be coming to the reboot’s sequel, though express caution on their validity:

“Alleged new details on Modern Warfare 2 started to emerge last week, including claims that the reboot sequel will include features such as weapon jamming, a new morality system, gore, revamped AI, and more. According to our sources, these details are mostly correct, but we were told that some educated guesses seem to have been made, likely based on early gameplay shared internally at Activision.”

Things could very well change during the game’s critical development stages, with many of these features not exactly promised to be in the final product. That said, we recommend taking all of this with a grain of salt for now. It’s likely that Activision and developer Infinity Ward will attempt to up the violence in an effort to separate itself from its original counterpart, along with introducing something fresh and new for the series that gives the new saga its own defining qualities and features. We’ll only know the full details closer to the time.

Meanwhile, Call of Duty: Vanguard launches on 5 November 2021 for PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S and PC.
