A new Call of Duty title in 2022? Colour us surprised. All joking aside, a new CoD title becomes the talk of the town whenever a game in the series releases, and fans are always looking forwards to a new entry - both from exhaustion from the latest and genuine excitement for what's to come.

The next Call of Duty game has long been rumoured to be a sequel to 2019's reboot of Modern Warfare, which has got a lot of fans excited. Now, we finally have some confirmation from those in the know.

After months of rumours and wild whispers, there's confirmation that a new game in the Modern Warfare line of titles will be launching in 2022. Be still, our beating hearts.

A Bloomberg report has been investigating the future of Call of Duty in the wake of Xbox's purchase of Activision Blizzard. It has apparently been confirmed not only that PlayStation will have Call of Duty games until 2023, but that the next game will be a Modern Warfare game.

Naturally, it's developed by Infinity Ward and set to land this year. The rumour has circulated for some time, but it's nice to say it with some level of finality - Call of Duty 2022 is a Modern Warfare game. Now we can really get excited. But, interestingly, that's not all.


Bloomberg Report Reveals Warzone 2

You're reading that right. Not only are we getting a new Modern Warfare this year - and another game from Treyarch the following year - but a follow-up to Warzone is currently in development. There's no word on when this follow-up will launch, but it's expected that the game will be a full reset for the battle royale game, and is likely to be exclusive to new-gen consoles.

It's a very exciting announcement that has given us some clarity on the future of Call of Duty, though it's likely that it came out voluntarily. Either way, this is huge news for the franchise, and shows that despite the big purchase, Call of Duty's future remains bright.
