While this isn't unprecedented in the franchise's history, the community is certainly looking forward to it.

Hence, fans assumed that Sony's involvement in the much-awaited title is related to this feature. However, Ralph stated otherwise and according to him, Sony's influence predominantly involves supervision over mechanics like in-game audio, systems and tech.

Furthermore, another informer named TheGhostOfHope stated:

@BalanceKST @RalphsValve @MavriqGG PS5 has a lot of tech that devs take advantage of like dualsense and stuff so I assume it’s that

With the arrival of Next Gen consoles, technology has already made a lot of progress and broadened the gaming community's ambitions. With almost ten studios working on the game, this reported addition is a good sign for the forthcoming iteration of the Call of Duty franchise.

Modern Warfare 2 release date, platforms, price and more

It is now available for pre-purchase on multiple platforms including PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, and PC. The PC version can be purchased via both Steam and Battle.Net. Players who order the game before-hand will have an exclusive opportunity to enjoy the open-beta before anyone else.

Activision's much-anticipated title is all set to be released on October 28, 2022.
