Despite the launch of Call of Duty: Vanguard this Friday, rumours have continued to swirl about the series’ 2022 entry.
Rumours from last month first pegged next year’s title as being a sequel to 2019’s Call of Duty: Modern Warfare. While that remains the prevailing wisdom, it sounds like plans for free-to-play offering Call of Duty: Warzone‘s map may also involve the original Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2. To that end, Video Games Chronicle claim a new map will comprise of various points of interest, based on locales from the 2009 shooter.
Citing “people with knowledge of the developer’s plans” some of the locations mentioned include a “significantly expanded” version of Favela. In addition, other maps mentioned include Afghan, Quarry, Terminal and Trailer Park. It’s believed, though not confirmed, the new map will replace Caldera just as that map is about to replace Verdansk.
Furthermore, the report also claims a new game-mode is in the works for the new map. While it doesn’t have a name yet, it’s said to be a mix of PvE and PvP and has been compared to the recently revealed Hazard Zone mode for Battlefield 2042. It’s apparently been in the works for several years, and could even potentially replace the Zombies mode.
Of course, there’s still a year and plenty more speculation to go before we find out what’s in store for Call of Duty 2022. We’re not likely to get confirmation any time soon, as Activision will want all eyes on Call of Duty: Vanguard‘s launch, which goes down this Friday.
