Call of Duty: Vanguard hasn't even graced our Xbox systems yet, but here we are with reports of next year's entry. The news may please some fans, as it's claimed to be a continuation of 2019's highly successful Call of Duty: Modern Warfare.

This comes from Tom Henderson, a well-known Call of Duty and Battlefield leaker. Henderson says next year's project is codenamed Project Cortez and adds that "it's expected to be a sequel to Modern Warfare 2019". Project Cortez was also one of the titles discovered in the Nvidia datamine, which listed Infinity Ward as the developer.

VGC and popular Call of Duty centric site CharlieIntel have also corroborated Henderson's report. VGC sources have allegedly said the "sequel will include a campaign involving US special forces fighting a covert war against Columbian drug cartels", whilst CharlieIntel added it's "heard some whispers that the game is going to be pretty incredible".

It's not all too surprising Infinity Ward would want to continue the success of Modern Warfare, which is arguably one of the best entries in years. Obviously, news of the project is very slim right now, including whether it will be a next-gen only title, so we'll have to wait until next year to hear anything officially.
