VGC also reports that Modern Warfare 2 is on the way next year and that it will include a campaign featuring U.S. special forces fighting Colombian drug cartels. Project Cortez was part of this week's GeForce Now datamine, with Infinity Ward slated to be the developer.
In IGN's Modern Warfare 2019 review, we called the game "great," saying, "Modern Warfare’s gorgeous new Realism mode, the large-scale Ground War, and quick and dirty Gunfight help mix things up for a good time." It would make sense for the series to follow up the 2019 reboot since Modern Warfare broke multiple sales records at the time of its release.
This year, it's Sledgehammer Games' turn to release the new Call of Duty, with Call of Duty: Vanguard set to come to PS5, Xbox Series X|S, PS4, Xbox One, and PC on November 4.
