Call of Duty seems to be in a slightly problematic state. While sales of the latest entry have been great, the franchise seems to be getting a little stale. It feels like the same title gets released year after year. Developers need to add a new game mode to keep things fresh. Interestingly, there seems to be credible information regarding an upcoming game mode for the sequel to Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2019.

Tom Henderson is of the belief that another game mode has been under the works since all the way back in 2018. The mode is being called a “DMZ mode.” This mode intends to incorporate the high voltage adrenaline associated with Call of Duty while incorporating gritty and tactical mechanics from Escape from Tarkov as well.

The leaker added more surprising news as a reply. Apparently, the mode was to release alongside Modern Warfare in 2019. The title had also explored the possibility of a Zombies mode that was scrapped early on during development.

This sort of news does fall in line with the path Modern Warfare has gone down. One of the game modes in the game was Spec Ops. It features players dropping down in isolated areas of Verdansk. The game mode did seem to attempt to offer the sandbox gameplay akin to that of Escape from Tarkov. Perhaps the addition of this DMZ mode in Call of Duty Modern Warfare II will do precisely that.

All in all, these two accounts have a lot to say about the upcoming title. Considering that the DMZ game mode is being worked on for 4 years, there seems to be a lot of confidence there. Adding on, the leaker seems confident that the development team for next year’s title is looking forward to the release as well.
