Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 will be released next October and you can already pre-order it to get in-game benefits. The good news is that pre-orders of the game are on sale!
[Mis à jour le 13 juillet 2022 à 12h16] After literally stealing the show during Summer Game Fest 2022, Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 is being revealed through information being leaked drop-by-drop from some insiders. We already know that this next creation from the Infinity Ward studios will be accompanied by Warzone 2.0, the next iteration of the famous free-to-play Battle Royale, but also the mysterious DMZ mode, the details of which we’ll learn little by little. But that’s not all, in today’s news Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 is already available for pre-order and promotion on all platforms, we’ll help you find it at the best possible price.
Pre-order Call of Duty Modern: Warfare 2 today to enjoy various benefits when the game is released. This year Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 is offered in 2 versions, the Standard version that includes the game and game access to the Open Beta (a few days earlier on Playstation consoles) and the Vault version that has all the benefits of the Standard version offers, plus the Battle Pass from the first season of the game, 50 levels, cosmetics and operators. You can find the Vault Edition for €99.99 on the Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 official website.
We are currently in a transition period between two generations of consoles and Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 intends to incorporate this fact into its offering. Because of this, you will find different versions of the game, some of which are cross-generation packs. These games are therefore compatible with both generations of consoles, just like the offer above for the Xbox One and Xbox Series consoles. You can find the cross-generation packs for €79.99, the same price as the PS5 and Xbox series games.
If we take a closer look at these images, it’s hard not to recall the intense and revolutionary campaign of Call of Duty Modern Warfare (2019). A military assault on the high seas has something to impress despite the game sticking to its graphics engine for three more years. There are some innovations, particularly in relation to the physics of objects on water, but these images rather assure us of a solid Call of Duty that is more than revolutionary. We’ll also, of course, celebrate the return of Captain Price and his colleagues in this powerful campaign focused on the challenges of the modern world.
Let’s start these few lines by confirming that what is in question here is still only at the rumor stage and nothing has been officially announced by Infinity Ward or Activision yet. Although Tom Henderson has very knowledgeable sources and has had his conclusions corroborated many times, he is still a (reputable) journalist and not Activision Blizzard’s Community Manager. In his article for Tryhard, the Brit first denies the rumors that DMZ mode would become a free-to-play release on the sidelines of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, a bit like Warzone. In fact, sources close to Infinity Ward have confirmed that DMZ mode will be launched at the same time as the game and integrated into its various multiplayer experiences. You must therefore purchase Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 in order to play it.
As for the nature of DMZ’s gameplay, some rumors were quick to compare it to a hardcore extraction-based shooter similar to Escape from Tarkov. Again, Henderson dismissed those rumors by stating that the game would be similar to the popular Russian tactical FPS in its mission/extraction premise, but that DMZ likely won’t be as full-featured as its Eastern European counterpart. It would actually be “one of the game’s multiplayer modes” rather than a fully standalone Warzone-like experience. Infinity Ward’s decision would be more to build the DMZ experience over time and with the players. An understandable decision given the failure of Battlefield 2042’s Hazard Zone mode (although the failure of HZ mode was more due to the lack of a viable rewards system and more generally to the content of a more than very average Battlefield 2042).
It is therefore the American studio Infinity Ward that is in charge of the development of this next release. Pretty reassuring news considering his pedigree when it comes to Call of Duty games. We owe him very popular episodes such as Modern Warfare (2007) and Modern Warfare 2 (2009), but also Modern Warfare (2019) and soon Modern Warfare 2 (2022-2023). A testament to an undeniable ability to provide excellent FPS without finding the original names. Of course, Modern Warfare 2 will be the opportunity to find the most popular operators of the first part, Captain Price, Ghost and Tutti Quanti, which of course we can see in its new Battle Royale mode, Warzone 2. moreover, Warzone 2, which is in the center of attention since insider and journalist Tom Henderson shared the first sketches of the map of the next battle royale.

Modern Warfare 2 finally has an official release date! It’s tight for them next October 28th. Once again, the game will be released on both console generations and on PC. It will therefore be found on PS4, PS5, Xbox One and Xbox Series. Good news for anyone who hasn’t had the chance to pick up one of the rare next-gen consoles hitting the shelves yet, less good news for the game’s technical progression, which may be quite constrained by an older generation of consoles and with reduced capabilities compared to their next-gen counterparts. A legitimate choice for Activision, which can’t afford to ignore the immense crowd of PS4 and Xbox One gamers.
