Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 will be released this October.
In a new Tweet from the official Call of Duty Twitter account, the studio announced Modern Warfare 2 will be released on October 28. In addition, the over-the-top video clip gave a sneak peak at some of the characters and potentially the cover art for the upcoming sequel.
Not content with a simple cover reveal and release date, Activision revealed the key art for Modern Warfare 2 by putting an oversized version of the image on a shipping boat and having it docked to combine into the full image.

The key art features an operator with a skull mask. But unlike the grim and gray look of the first Modern Warfare reboot, Modern Warfare 2 is going for a neon green look. Check out the full key art below.
Activision Blizzard officially announced Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 earlier this year. The annual franchise will be handled by Infinity Ward this year and will be a sequel to the 2019 reboot. Early details say that Modern Warfare 2 will center around U.S. special forces fighting the Colombian drug cartel.
This could also be the last annual Call of Duty game as it was reported that 2023’s Call of Duty game will be released in 2024 and that the series may no longer be an annual franchise following Microsoft’s acquisition of Activision Blizzard.
However, reports also suggest that Activision Blizzard is committed to keeping the next three Call of Duty games multiplatform.
