(Pocket-lint) – The release date for this year’s Call of Duty has been announced as the build-up to a full reveal for Modern Warfare 2 continues – the game will hit shelves on 28 October 2022.
Infinity Ward and Activision came up with a predictably big stunt to announce the date, creating some massive artwork in a docking area, and also updated the game’s website with some new information.
Unsurprisingly it confirms that Captain Price and Gaz will be returning after starring in 2019’s Modern Warfare reboot, while iconic characters Soap and Ghost will be in Task Force 141 this time around, for the sequel.

Elsewhere, it’s been noticed that the latest update files for Vanguard contain some clues about MW2 having a beta, just as Vanguard did leading up to its release.
This will seemingly debut first on PlayStation, again in line with Vanguard’s system and part of the on-going marketing partnership between the franchise and PlayStation, despite Xbox’s Activision purchase.
The beta will be open to those who pre-order the game, but will have earlier and more sessions on PlayStation, according to CharlieIntel.
Next up on the hype train is an actual reveal trailer, which should come on 8 June after multiple teases for that date were spotted, so keep an eye out at that point!
