According to industry insider Tom Henderson, Activision is planning on calling its next first-person shooter from Infinity Ward “Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare II” while also hinting that “the artwork looks fucking amazing”, as first reported by PCGamesN.
In a follow-up tweet, Henderson clarified his claims saying: “I can confirm that I’ve seen artwork that says “Modern Warfare II” – But this does not necessarily confirm the title is 100% Modern Warfare II as names can change during development.”
If Activision and Infinity Ward are planning on calling the next game Modern Warfare II, this would be a rather confusing title as the 2009 CoD game goes by the same name. This unconfirmed title would also make it Infinity Ward’s next Modern Warfare title as well as its latest game since the release of Warzone in 2020.
