The community's reaction holds utmost importance to them. So, it is expected that the developers are shaping a new era of Call of Duty for a larger audience.

Leaker reveals Modern Warfare 2 to incorporate VR

Based on a recent leak, Infinity Ward might integrate a virtual reality experience into the much-awaited Call of Duty title, and the experience might be solely for PlayStation VR2. Furthermore, it could feature a Tier-1 Operator for fans to experience up-close.

VR experience in Call of Duty is not something that might happen for Modern Warfare 2 for the very first time in the franchise's history. Previously, Activision tried to incorporate the system and make an entry into the world of virtual reality.

In Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, Infinity Ward integrated a VR experience exclusively for PlayStation VR. The free-to-play experience immerses fans in the cockpit and gives control of a fighter jet named Jackal. However, it received mixed reactions from the community.

A critic stated:

"Call of Duty Infinite Warfare: Jackal Assault VR was a good idea, but the game itself is too short and not ambitious enough."

Infinity Ward's first attempt was not a huge success. So, if they want to make it again, the developers would do their best to give fans the ultimate VR experience.

Leaker Ralph Valve had also said to sources:

"With Infinity Ward seeing untapped potential in the virtual-reality sphere, they will be iterating upon their previous attempt seen in Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, leveling their bets for Modern Warfare 2."

Rumored VR experience might be PSVR2 exclusive

With Microsoft acquiring Activision Blizzard, Call of Duty's future for PlayStation came into question. However, Sony's deal with Call of Duty lasts for the next three years, and Microsoft President Brad Smith said back in February that they have committed to Sony and make Call of Duty available on the PlayStation post-agreement.

Hence, incorporating VR via PSVR 2 might be something Infinity Ward can think of.
