Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 will reportedly be getting campaign DLC as well as a map pack in late 2023, according to new leaks.

According to the TheGhostofHope, Treyarch have also had their their budgets approved for a 2 year lifecycle on their next Call of Duty instalment.

This seems to imply that the series could be going for a two year cycle going forward, and not just with this year’s entry as previously rumoured.

Activision are reportedly going to skip next year, instead focusing on extending Modern Warfare 2’s life cycle, a report from Insider Gaming reveals. There are rumours this DLC could see a number of classic maps appear in the game as part of a ‘map pack’ – although nothing has been confirmed.

If true, then we could well see the likes of Wasteland, Terminal, Favela and more arrive to Modern Warfare 2 – likely with upgraded visuals.

NOW READ: Will there be another Modern Warfare 2 beta?

The premium DLC move would certainly make a lot of sense. The previous iteration of Modern Warfare, which was released in 2019 has remained incredibly popular despite both Black Ops 5 and Call of Duty Vanguard launching.

However, it should also be noted that Activision apparently won’t make a final decision for 12-18 months. Another huge factor will be, of course, Microsoft’s purchase of Activision, and what they decide should that deal go ahead.

Until a decision is made, however, Hope claims that Treyarch will continue to operate off an assumption of 2 years.

Modern Warfare 2 went through a beta stage recently, which was the most popular in the franchise’s history. The game received rave reviews from fans, which sees the return of the gunsmith and a number of beloved weapons.

The upcoming Warzone Mobile has also seen huge success – despite the fact it has not even launched. It’s become the fastest Activision, Blizzard and King mobile game to top 15 million pre-registrations on Google Play.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 releases on PS, Xbox and PC on October 28.
