Call of Duty 2022 has been officially announced. Activision Blizzard announced that this year's release will be a sequel to 2019's Call of Duty: Modern Warfare. That game having been a reboot of the original Modern Warfare release from 2007, which had its own sequel with 2009's Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2. Activision Blizzard have not explicitly called this year's release Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, so its title may still end up being something else.

Development of this Modern Warfare sequel is being developed in tandem with an all-new Call of Duty: Warzone release which will be "designed together from the ground up." Warzone 2 will be a "massive evolution of (battle royale), with an all-new playspace and new sandbox mode." Both Warzone 2 and the next Modern Warfare will supposedly be powered by a new engine.

Infinity Ward are at the helm of both of these releases. Today's announcement came not with a new trailer or anything else but was instead tucked away both on Twitter and as part of a blog update that focused on Season 2 for Call of Duty: Vanguard and the current Call of Duty: Warzone.

Release platforms and a release date have not yet been announced yet either.
