This year’s Call of Duty could come in early October, as claimed by journalist Tom Henderson, who has a well-known history of leaking information about Call of Duty and other major franchises.
In a ___ Tweet on January 13Henderson has reportedly heard “Rumbling” that this fall’s Call of Duty game, considered a follow-up to Modern Warfare 2019, could be moved to a month ahead of its October release. Laker claims that the change is due to poor sales of Call of Duty: Vanguard. Although Vanguard topped the PlayStation Store sales chart in North America and Europe for its launch in November, overall sales for Black Ops Cold War were slightly lower than last year.
Henderson added that the early launch of Call of Duty 2022 will bring a “major” update to Call of Duty: Warson shortly. However, Warson’s report seems to be in line with past headlines, as Raven Software integrates Black Ops Cold War 2020 and Vanguard 2021 into Warson within a month or two of each game’s release.
As expected, this year’s Call of Duty title, Modern Warfare II (2022), will appear in the summer.

Along with these claims, Henderson also says that the sequel to Modern Warfare is currently coming out in the summer. This shouldn’t be too surprising as the time frame is based on past revelations, as both Black Ops Cold War and Vanguard revealed August dates.
Details of other rumors surrounding the Call of Duty 2022 include Colombian drug cartels, a story focusing on an “ethical compass” system, and a map of the War Zone, which includes Afghan, Kan, from 2009’s Modern Warfare 2. Includes the classic locations of the terminal and trailer park.
Call of Duty continues to develop new content as walkouts continue in protest of surprising contract termination within Reven Software’s QA team, and Activision Blizzard employees have recently led reconciliation efforts. The radio reported silence. Activision Blizzard is also facing charges and other investigations into alleged sexual harassment and discrimination against women.
