Activision Plans On Making Another Warzone This Year
Sadly, there’s no gameplay teasing here. But don’t despair. There are a few events ahead of October 28, 2022, that Activision might choose to release a trailer with gameplay. Furthermore, according to the maker, Call of Duty Modern Warfare is the most successful title ever made. But wait, there’s more; Activision already plans on dropping 2022, another Warzone game completely different from its predecessor with many elements that gamers like and enjoy. Since Warzone dropped in 2020, Activision has considered giving the wildly successful free-to-play title a revamp to boost sales.
Which Characters Do We See In The Trailer?
This trailer teased the appearances of “Soap” John MacTavish, Captain John Price, “Gaz” Kyle Garrick, and a Mexican special-ops dude named Alejandro Vargas, that make up the Task Force 141. So far, Activision hasn’t given any details on the game’s plot or story arc. But the minute we receive any official information, we will post an update for you on this subject.
Will Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 Be Release On PlayStation?
This major announcement by Activision comes right in the middle of the Microsoft purchase of Activision Blizzard, a major takeover by Microsoft after also acquiring Bethesda. While the acquisition is still ongoing and the authorities are putting the stamps on, we know for a fact that Microsoft —so far— doesn’t plan on making Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 an Xbox exclusive title. So, the short answer is yes, Microsoft will release Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 on the PlayStation. Rest assured that if any changes come up. We will post an update for you.
