Call of Duty had hit a rocky rad after its turbulent release of Infinite Warfare. Its successor is set in World War 2 and promised to bring back the old boots on the ground gameplay to fans. However, that game too was quite average according to fans’ response.

Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2019 offered a much-needed breath of fresh air to the franchise. It featured a blend of semi-realistic tactical shooter experience while still not compromising on the arcade shooter feel the series is renowned for. Activision has a 3 studio development cycle in place for the series. Moreover, Infinite Warfare was followed by Treyarch and finally followed by Sledgehammer Games. Black Ops Cold War was Treyarch’s project and this year’s Vanguard is Sledgahmmer’s responsibility.

Net year’s Call of Duty will be developed by Infinity Ward. Furthermore, Tom Henderson, a longtime leaker of the series believes that this game will most probably be supported for last-gen consoles such as the PlayStation 4 and the Xbox One as well.


Call of Duty 2019’s ending teased Captain Price, forming the iconic Task Force 141 again. Tom Henderson has previously stated that COD 2022 will be called Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II. It appears that the title will pick up right where the previous iteration of Infinity Ward left off.

History of COD and last-gen support

Previous titles of this franchise have had issues with regard to support for last-gen consoles. Treyarch’s Black Ops 3 had no campaign support for the PS3  and Xbox 360. That game was built with minimal support and was completely barebones. However, this recent leak suggests that this might not be the case for COD 2022.
