“Ranked play arrives on Modern Warfare 2 in 2023,” Treyarch tweeted yesterday (November 2), before adding that it is working on “competitive modes, ranked skill divisions, visible skill ratings, top 250 leaderboard and competitive rewards” with their partners.

“In the meantime, Modern Warfare 2 players can throw down in the CDL Moshpit, arriving at the start of Season 01,” the company added in reference to the start of season one on November 16, which is the same day that Warzone 2 will launch.

“We’ll have more details about what and where you’ll be playing closer to the launch.”

Treyarch added that the imminent introduction of ranked play  means that Vanguard‘s ranked play and Black Ops Cold War‘s league play modes will both be retired, with players urged to “grab their remaining rewards by November 22 in both titles”.

“The success of these modes has directly contributed to the future of ranked play,” Treyarch said. “We sincerely thank you for all the data, feedback, and time played that was collected over the past two years. We look forward to sharing more soon!”
