Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 is a first-person shooter that is developed by Infinity Ward and published by Activision, which will serve as the nineteenth installment in the Call of Duty series. The franchise has received annual releases since 2005 and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 will serve as a sequel to 2019’s Modern Warfare. This isn’t, as many believed, a reboot of the 2009 Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2. It is a new game.

The Activision publication is set to improve upon the previous generation’s gameplay, gunplay, advanced AI and a lot more in order to give players a far more immersive experience. It will also feature a campaign that returns with Task Force 141 including Sgt. John 'Soap' Mactavish and Captain John Price. Not only that, Modern Warfare 2 will connect to Warzone 2.0 to hand gamers a brand new play space and sandbox mode.

What is Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2’s story?

The story picks up from where the 2019 reboot entry, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, left off and features several favorites and returning characters. This includes Captain John Price, Sergeant Kyle "Gaz" Garrick, Lieutenant Simon "Ghost" Riley, Sergeant John "Soap" MacTavish and a few others. Not only that, there are three new characters including Mexican Special Forces Colonel Alejandro Vargas as a new member of Task Force 141.

The game is set three years after Price created Task Force 141 and revolves around the team’s attempts to quell further escalation and combat the Las Almas drug cartel and a terrorist organization.
