The reboot of Activision’s cult FPS will have the difficult task of relaunching the license and the studio intends to mark the occasion with a major announcement.
As the video game industry faces another E3-less summer, studios are busy making their own announcements in fallen show fashion. The month of June will be full of conferences of all kinds, especially as part of the Summer Game Fest, which is all the more important with the current situation. After PlayStation’s State of Play broadcast last night and serving as a premise for what awaits us this month, the FPS giant intends to mark June 2022 with the colors of Modern Warfare II.
After the failure of Call of Duty: Vanguardall hopes are placed in the reboot of this classic of the license which had known how to win the hearts of so many players at the time of the PlayStation 3 and the Xbox 360. The reboot recipe has already worked very well with the release of Modern Warfare on PS4, Xbox One and PC in 2019, generating huge expectations for its sequel.
The pressure is rising
Last week, Activision began teasing its game with the announcement of its release date and the main characters of this new version of Modern Warfare II. We then learned that the game would arrive on October 28, but we still had no image of the game. The studio then promised more news for the month of June, and it did not take long since a explosive announcement awaits fans of the license next Wednesday.
The most formidable weapon is the team. #ModernWarfare2

At 7 p.m. French time, players will be able to discover the latest addition to the license call of duty, powered by a new graphics engine developed exclusively for next-gen consoles. To go along with this new title, Infinity Ward is also developing the new version of the battle royale Warzone. There’s no indication if it will also be showcased at this event, but with the two games running in a common ecosystem, it wouldn’t be surprising to learn more during this event.
