Teasers for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, the sequel to 2019’s Modern Warfare, are coming on April 30, according to a Call of Duty leaker. Twitter user @RalphsValve posted a timer counting down to the date. In a thread, Ralph confirmed the “reveal” of Modern Warf12are 2 is still set for May. Activision will be hoping to drum up hype for Modern Warfare 2 with teasers before the big reveal.
When is the Modern Warfare 2 teaser trailer release date?
It is not the first claim around this Modern Warfare sequel coming out of RalphsValve. In October last year, the leaker claimed Modern Warfare 2 would see the return of Captain Price, Soap, Ghost, General Shepard, and Roach. It was also claimed the sequel would take gore to the next level, described as “gritty and unrelenting.”
Activision officially announced that 2022’s game would be a sequel to Modern Warfare in February — the earliest the publisher has acknowledged the fall title. In that announcement, Activision confirmed a new Warzone map was launching alongside the new game, designed together from the “ground-up.” The new map is an “evolution of battle royale,” according to developers, with a new playspace and sandbox mode also included.
Finally, it was confirmed the development of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 and the new Warzone experience is being led by Infinity Ward — the original creators of the Modern Warfare trilogy and 2019’s Call of Duty: Modern Warfare. It is expected that 2022’s Call of Duty will be the last one to follow the annualized release known with the franchise. According to Bloomberg, Activision will delay next year’s Call of Duty from Treyarch into 2024.
Let me preface this by saying, the Reveal is still set for May.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare (2019) was a huge commercial success for Activision, so it came as no surprise the publisher announced a sequel was on the way. It broke sales records for the franchise, earning well over $1 billion in revenue from sales and in-game microtransactions. Last year’s Call of Duty: Vanguard sold less than the previous game Black Ops Cold War, so Activision will be hoping for a home run later this year.
In other news, this year’s Need for Speed is reportedly current-gen only. CI Games has announced Lords of the Fallen 2 has been pushed to a 2023 release date. Meanwhile, the Shadowrun Trilogy from Paradox Interactive is seemingly heading to PS4 and PS5.
