Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 is expected to undergo a premium expansion in late 2023, according to Bloomberg reporter Jason Schreier. The MW2 remake will include some new features, with the new instalment expected to launch in 2024.
The call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 expansion, which is being staged in 2023 for the first time, is expected to include classic maps from the original 2009 Modern Warfare 2, along with other multiplayer maps. According to the publisher''s Q3 2022 earnings report, Activision said in August that its company planned to release new premium content. This came just after reports emerged, stating that the publisher will skip an annual release cycle for the first time in 20 years.

The year 2023 will not see a mainline Call of Duty release, but rather to an always on live service model. This is a positive aspect to this shake-up, which allows developers to focus on original mechanics and narrative instead of reluctantly punching out a lacklustre CoD title. This is also possible due to a two-year life cycle.
Developer Sledgehammer Games is planning a sequel to Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, set for 2025, which has been unveiled over the years for its disappointing sales figures. In fact, Activision''s high sales figures meant that it failed to meet Activision''s sales expectations, prompting executives to believe that it had been cannibalized by the previous year''s game. According to a Bloomberg report,
TheGhostOfHope made a list of unreleased operators coming to Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2. Although most names were unknown, the list also featured big-name footballers namely Messi, Neymar, and Pogba. The tipster was unable to elaborate on the leak, noting they have no clue why football player names were included.
There''s a reasonable possibility these are just temporary placeholders, or it might be set up to coincide with a 2022 Qatar World Cup event, which will take place from November 20 to December 18. Beware of the fact that Call of Duty isn''t a stranger to odd collaborations, even partnering with the Warner Bros. studio anime Attack on Titan, and the MAPPA studio anime Attack on Titan, at the height of its peak.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 will be available on PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Xbox Series S/X on October 28, 2017. Digital pre-orders enable early access to the campaign segment starting October 20.
