Call of Duty Modern Warfare II, the sequel to 2019’s Modern Warfare reboot (and not to be confused with 2009’s Modern Warfare 2), is reportedly getting its full reveal in early June, according to well-known leaker Tom Henderson. The reveal is meant to happen around the E3 season, though since that event is non-existent this year, it will likely target Geoff Keighley’s Summer Game Fest.
Henderson recently claimed that Activision and developer Infinity Ward are targeting a June reveal for Call of Duty Modern Warfare II. However, this only includes a traditional trailer for the campaign. The multiplayer reveal is reportedly set for August, though it’s not known if it will tie into a Warzone event like prior reveals in the series.
Since E3 has bowed out of hosting an event this year, Summer Game Fest – which takes place on 9 June – is the next likely option. It could also shift its reveal to the Xbox and Bethesda Games Showcase happening just a few days later on 12 June. This would make sense considering Activision Blizzard is in the process of being acquired by Microsoft.
Call of Duty Modern Warfare II was first announced with a teaser showing Ghost, a familiar face in the series. It will reportedly be a grittier and more violent entry in the franchise.
One report suggests that this could be the last annual Call of Duty game once the Activision Blizzard acquisition deal is finalised at Xbox. The idea is to then shift the series to release a new game every two years instead, similar to what Ubisoft did with the Assassin’s Creed franchise which also moved out of an annual release schedule.
Fans can at least look forward to seeing more Call of Duty next month, though we recommend still taking all rumours with a tiny grain of salt.
Call of Duty Modern Warfare II is currently in development.
