It appears that Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 will see the return of Infected mode. In a tweet from a now-suspended account, the familiar emblem was posted with the caption ‘INFECTED’.

Infected mode last appeared in Call Of Duty Modern Warfare (2019) and places one player as the infected who runs around a map and kills other players to turn them into members of the opposing team. It’s up to the opposing team to survive as long as they can and take out the eventual horde that will be rushing their way.

There’s also an alleged leak from a Twitter user that states that a ranked mode is coming to the current Warzone prior to the launch of Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 which could have interesting implications for Warzone 2. As the tweet states:

Ranked mode for current Warzone is coming before MWII releases. Will not be a full-fledged ranked mode but will be THE blueprint they use going into Warzone 2. Will be released on Current Warzone for testing purposes. Caldera only. Doesn’t look like it’ll be released for FK/RI.”

There’s an event coming up on Thursday 15th September that will reveal the multiplayer portion of Modern Warfare 2. It’ll also include reveals for Warzone 2 and Warzone Mobile.
