Only days ago Infinity Ward announced the new Call of Duty game for 2022, Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2. A sequel to 2019’s reboot to the Modern Warfare franchise. It seems like Activision are finally listening to their fans and this might also be the case with some of the features expected to be in the game.
The official announcement of the game should be just around the corner, trailers, promotional images, anything to get the community hyped for the next game but for now all we have is the logo and name.
Rumours have suggested that the game could launch earlier than November to make up for the poor sales from Call of Duty: Vanguard, and to give an extra few weeks/months to the life of the game (which is already rumoured to be two years).
Fans are also excited for the rumoured Warzone 2 which should be launching alongside Modern Warfare 2 in the same way the original Warzone did back in 2019. Warzone 2 is expected to be a complete refresh to remove all of the clutter from the past two years of Call of Duty integrations. Activision themselves have stated that sometimes it’s hard to resolve bugs when three different games are all integrated together, and it’s not like we need three different version of the same gun from three different games.
With weapons in mind, blueprints and weapon customisation will still be a huge part of Call of Duty. Modern Warfare introduced the gunsmith as a way for players to customise their weapon and see the attachments and upgrades happening in real time, but one of fans biggest complaints is that the only way to test a gun was to jump straight into a game with it, having to leave if their gun build wasn’t what they expected.
TheGhostofHope recently announced in a tweet that the new game should include a shooting range. The last game to include the shooting range was Call of Duty: WWII. A huge feature at the time which allowed players to jump into the HQ area and build and test their weapon setups before going into a match.
Warzone players have been demanding this feature for the longest time now, especially the free to play players who didn’t have access to game modes like team death match to test their guns.
Players looking forward to the addition of a shooting range will have to wait for Modern Warfare 2 to launch later this year. For now, stay tuned to Gamerficial for more updates.
