Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 leak – what we know and what is confirmed so far
With 11 studios in the mix , we look at whether this is out of the ordinary and a sign of panic by Activision, or nothing out of the ordinary.
Another day, another leak but this one centers around the potential of what’s is coming in the way of Call of Duty in 2022 and, if this is to be believed, it will be a sequel to 2010’s Modern Warfare.
Things are changing at Activision having been acquired by Microsoft but it is unlikely to have had much effect on what’s going on in the CoD universe this quickly. One thing for sure though, Activision’s new gaming overlords in Seattle won’t want a botched release on its first watch.
We have had Call of Duty games from Infinity Ward, Treyarch and Sledgehammer, with studios interchanging and helping out where deemed necessary to just get the job done.
CoD leaker RalhphsValve initially leaked out there were 10 studios working in some way on Modern Warfare II before then adding that Treyarch was “helping out”
Which studios are working on Modern Warfare 2?
It’s is important to read beyond the clickbait here. It’s not necessarily the case that 10 studios implies some kind of panic by Activision. Games are always the sum of all parts rather than everythign just created by one in-house team. And example here would a companyu such as Demonware, who “create, provide and host the online services behind some of the world’s biggest games.“
Beenox are another Activision subsiduary that have also worked on Cold War and War Zone as well as the likes of the rebooted Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater.
So while it is interesting to see the name’s being pulled together it isn’t necessarily much out of the ordinary. The only thing that might raise a tiny red flag is “Treyarch helping out”. This seems to becoming a theme of late, and with the studio working on it’s own 2023 Call of Duty (assuming the pattern is continued) it may, or may not, provide a distraction.
Either way, the Call of Duty leaks have started, so we will be meeting here more often my friend. Until the next time.
