The official Call of Duty Twitter account posted an overhead layout of a new map from Modern Warfare 2 on Tuesday, September 13, 2022.

The tweet was posted just ahead of the game's upcoming multiplayer reveal at Call of Duty: Next on September 15, 2022.

Modern Warfare 2 is the sequel to the Modern Warfare reboot from 2019. Due to the reboot's massive success, fans are expecting a lot from the upcoming title.

The developers apparently left no stone unturned when it came to the new entry in the franchise. They even described it as the "most advanced" Call of Duty game that players will experience to date.

Call of Duty: Next is just around the corner, and more information about the title is set to be revealed in the coming days. The event is also expected to provide information about Warzone 2.0 and Warzone Mobile.

Everything to know about the new Modern Warfare 2 map

The new Modern Warfare 2 map appears to have a three-lane design, but the lanes are asymmetrical. It also looks medium in size.

The middle section of the map seems more favorable for close-quarter combat using SMG or Shotguns. The other two lanes look more fit for combat using Assault Rifles or LMGs.

Speculation suggests that the overhead layout is actually that of Museum, which is a map that players have previously seen in leaks. It is also expected to be included in the upcoming beta of the game.

Fans were obviously swift to react. The developers revealed parts of the map in stages before players got a glimpse of it in its entirety.
