We've got a date! Activision has announced today that the upcoming Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 will officially release on October 28th, 2022, although specifics about platforms and Xbox Game Pass have yet to be announced.

Details are still really limited at the moment, but we do know that the game is being developed with a new engine alongside a new version of Warzone, with Infinity Ward designing both of the experiences from the ground-up.

In regards to Game Pass, it perhaps seems unlikely that Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 will launch on the service day one, as Microsoft's acquisition of Activision Blizzard could take until the middle of 2023 to complete, but we're still hopeful that we might see it on the service this October. For now, we'll have to wait a bit longer to find out.

"Task Force 141 makes its massive return with a global squad of iconic veterans, these Operators include Captain John Price, Simon “Ghost” Riley, John “Soap” MacTavish, Kyle 'Gaz' Garrick and introducing Mexican Special Forces Colonel Alejandro Vargas."
