Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II release (and reveal?) date announced via massive art project
Activision has offered up more details on the next major chapter of the Call of Duty franchise by means of a very dramatic (and real) art project.
“Initial asset intel brings revelations about key members of Task Force 141, including Team leader Captain John Price, Sergeant Kyle ‘Gaz’ Garrick, Sergeant ‘Soap’ MacTavish, lone-wolf Simon ‘Ghost’ Riley, and Colonel Alejandro Vargas of the Mexican Special Forces,” the Call of Duty team writes as part of a new official blog post.
During the video, we get an official release date for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II: October 28th, 2022.
However, we also seem to get another date, if you look closely at a message written on one of the shipping containers in the video: J•8•22, which could be understood as June 8th, 2022. With all of the rest of the “not quite E3” events that’ll be happening next month, that seems like a good time to give us a first real look at the game.
