The embattled Modern Warfare 2 title has seemingly forced Activision to look in another direction as reports are now suggesting that a new Call of Duty entry is set to arrive at some point in late 2023.

Based on an article from Insider Gaming’s Tom Henderson, Activision had seemingly initially planned on designing the added content as “premium DLC” for Modern Warfare 2. However, the numerous issues that have plagued the game and the avalanche of complaints that have been lodged since launch have apparently made the well-known publisher rethink their strategy.
This information was also previously confirmed through a November 2022 CharlieIntel and Jason Schreier tweet, wherein the Bloomberg journalist mentioned that there would be an expansion for MW2 that would be spearheaded by Sledgehammer Games. Further information provided appears to suggest that the upcoming installment will still be connected to the Modern Warfare series and could possibly contain remastered maps for Multiplayer.
Ahead of the new title’s release, there will also allegedly be two Beta weeks, an early access campaign period, and an extensive marketing campaign to attract even more players to the new Call of Duty creation. Fortunately, it will still be released on previous generation consoles so those playing on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One will still be able to enjoy the anticipated entry.

Though no specific release dates have been provided yet by Activision or the developers themselves, the tentative time frames are apparently slated for a late 2023 launch, with the first and second Beta weekends set for early October. On the other hand, campaign early access and the eventual full release will reportedly be in early November, but these details should still be taken with a grain of salt since official sources are yet to actually confirm it.
