Not even done with Vanguard Season 1, fans are already looking far forward to whatever Call of Duty has planned next. Leaks and rumours have suggested that the upcoming title will be a sequel to the 2019 reboot of the Modern Warfare titles (it's confusing, we know), and as such, gamers are getting very excited indeed.

Many called the reboot a real return to form for the series, and are hoping that Modern Warfare 2 could carry that same torch - and we might not have to wait as long as we expected.

Modern Warfare 2 Release Window Leaked

A new leak has suggested a release window for the upcoming Modern Warfare 2, and though it might not seem all that surprising, a lot of us have noticed that it could have been affected by the sales of Call of Duty: Vanguard.

The leak was brought to light by Tom Henderson, who shared the news on Twitter.

"As expected, it's looking like this year's Call of Duty title, Modern Warfare II (2022), will be revealed in the summer", he says. "Hearing rumblings that the game could release in October due to Vanguard's poor sales performance, with a 'big' Warzone update coming soon after."

Though Vanguard naturally soared to the top of the best-selling games of the year in 2021 as ever, the game sold considerably slower than Black Ops Cold War, so it's likely that the teams behind the games are getting a little nervous about the upcoming title.

Could Modern Warfare 2 Sell Better Than Vanguard?

Though Vanguard has sold very well by the standard of video games last year, its sales numbers by the standard of Call of Duty has flagged. It may seem shallow to say, but it's quite likely that the game struggled to keep up with its peers because it wasn't attached to an in-franchise series - meaning that a new Modern Warfare game is more likely to perform well.

Even aside from this, players revere the 2019 reboot for its engine and gameplay, as well as serving as the building blocks for Warzone, so a return to this is likely going to please dedicated fans as well as the wider market. It's likely that the factors bogging Vanguard down will be alleviated by next October, so there's every chance that Modern Warfare 2 could clear past it in sales.

We can't yet be entirely sure of the sequel's sales, but Call of Duty's nerves in releasing the new game is telling. Who knows if they're confident in Modern Warfare 2 or not - but this isn't a good look for the franchise. Chances are it'll still sell like hotcakes, though.
