Modern Warfare 2 Reportedly Releasing Early Due To Poor Vanguard Sales

An early release date for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 (2022) is reportedly on the cards at Activision due to the poor sales performance of Call of Duty: Vanguard.

Although yet to be confirmed by anyone at Call of Duty, the next title in the hit franchise is rumoured to be a continuation of 2019’s reboot of Modern Warfare. The sequel was expected to launch at the beginning of November, similar to all other Call of Duty titles, but it looks like that could be about to change.

Insider Claims Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Set For October Release

The rumour comes from industry insider Tom Henderson, who claims that Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 (2022) will be announced sometime in the summer. Henderson went on to state that he is “hearing rumblings that the title could release in October”.

Although Call of Duty titles often release at the beginning of November, an October release date wouldn’t be the strangest thing in the world. Black Ops 4 was one of the first titles to release at the beginning of October, with the only other Call of Duty games to have an October release date being Call of Duty, Call of Duty 2, and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare (2019).

Henderson didn’t state how much earlier Modern Warfare 2 could release, but that it is being discussed due to the poor sales performance of Call of Duty: Vanguard. It may be a case of simply pushing the release date forward by a week or two, as opposed to an early October launch.

However, another interesting factor included in Henderson’s claim is that a “big” Warzone update will be coming soon after the release of Modern Warfare 2.

Warzone fans are still getting to grips with the new Caldera Map that launched shortly after Call of Duty: Vanguard, but it has been known for some time that a new map is speculated to arrive with the release of Modern Warfare 2. Hopefully this time the launch goes a little smoother.
