Infinity Ward happens to be one of the major studios working on the development process of the Call of Duty franchise.
Now, an official tweet posted by the gaming studio has pointed towards a new COD game being developed. The tweet has given fans a fair hint of what the studio could be working towards developing at the moment. A lot of fans believe that the company is working towards putting together a sequel to Modern Warfare which was launched in the year 2019.
In the Call of Duty Modern Warfare series, “Stay Frosty” is a quote that gamers come across frequently. Though there are many studios involved in the development of the COD Modern warfare series, Infinity Ward manages a large chunk of things on that front. Last year, one heard rumors about a new Modern Warfare sequel scheduled to be released in 2022. Now, there are good chances of Infinity Ward offering a confirmation on the same soon.
While sharing its quarterly financial results recently, Activision Blizzard confirmed that it is working towards executing “the most ambitious plan in franchise history”.
A new generation of Call of Duty is coming soon.

Last year, Tom Henderson, an industry insider, claimed that the sequel to the Call of Duty Modern Warfare could be released along with a brand new Warzone map. There were also rumors about the single-player campaign of COD 2022 channelizing its energies towards fighting a drug war against a notorious cartel in Columbia.
As per Henderson, ‘Project Cortez’ is the working title of the next Call of Duty game. The 2019 edition of Modern Warfare came to an end with Cpt Price getting his forces in place and putting together Task Force 141.
While one has not received much details about this upcoming game, there is a good possibility of Infinity Ward trying to replicate many elements from 2019 Modern Warfare. It is also expected to be much darker than any of the games launched in the COD series so far.
Meanwhile, Activision Blizzard also confirmed the fact that the sales of Call of Duty Vanguard have declined significantly in recent times. The COD series, perhaps, is in need of fresh and innovative ideas.
