Insider Reveals Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Setting
It's a new year, so of course, speculation about the upcoming games for 2022 has become rife. Now, we could have some key intel on where Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 will be set.
It's set to be a pretty big year, with the likes of Elden Ring, God of War: Ragnarok, and the sequel to Breath of the Wild making the list of potential arrivals. It's hard to ask for much more, but obviously, some franchises turn out games every single year without fail.
Call of Duty is the poster child for this type of turnaround, and despite many players' grievances with the practice, they'll still turn up every year on the release date to pick up a copy of the new title.
Now, we may have just received some big news about the new title many, many months ahead of its official reveal from CoD HQ.
Modern Warfare 2's Setting Has Been Revealed
According to notorious leaker Tom Henderson, the next Call of Duty title, rumoured to be a sequel to the 2019 reboot of the Modern Warfare, has found its setting.
In a recent video on his YouTube channel, Henderson suggests that Latin America will be the main focus of the game, with its narrative focussing on cartels.
The game is supposedly "centred around the drug war against the Columbian cartels" and is "a grittier version of Modern Warfare (2019)" - as a direct continuation for the rebooted series.
But, that's not all, and as Henderson predicts, it could also end up being pretty controversial.
Why Will Modern Warfare 2 Could Be Contentious
Henderson goes on to explain in his video that due to the grittier nature of the game, it could get some more media attention for controversial decisions that the character would have to make.
"I wouldn't be surprised if this game makes headlines in media for some of the decisions you have to make and stuff like that, just like they did with Modern Warfare (2019)" he says. "And I wouldn't be surprised if this game does get demonetised if you're playing the campaign on YouTube for example."
It seems like a bold statement, and if that does come to fruition, it would be interesting press for the franchise which was once incredibly controversial. It'd be a welcome return to form for Call of Duty - but we'll just have to wait and see if it comes true or we get another forgettable Vanguard.
