Modern Warfare sequel got a logo reveal
Exciting news for fans of logos
A few months ago, Activision revealed the next steps for one of its biggest franchises at a briefing for Call of Duty: Warzone. In addition to announcing that Infinity Ward will be taking the lead for the next CoD and Warzone games, they also let us know that the newest mainline title in the series will be a sequel to 2019’s Modern Warfare. We haven’t heard many other details about what the project will look like since the briefing, but today on Twitter, the official Call of Duty account did give us a little sneak preview of the game’s branding, as small of a detail as that may be. That’s right — it’s a logo reveal, something that game developers do now, apparently.
It’s a sleek, simple logo that’s very in line with the whole vibe the franchise is going for these days, so I’m not mad about it. If their goal was to build hype, it’s working, because the post is not only doing numbers, but fans are excitedly speculating about whether this means the official title will be Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 or Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II. My money’s on the latter.

The new Modern Warfare title is also bringing along some changes to Warzone, as we learned from that same briefing. Activision said they’re building an “all-new playspace and a new sandbox mode,” another detail I’m dying for more info on because it’s so vague.
As pointed out by our very own Eric Van Allen, Activision had expressed their interest in the metaverse in the past, so there’s a chance they could be using the new game to move in that direction. I’m not sure I have any idea what a Call of Duty metaverse would even look like (or that I’d even really want to know), but I don’t really see how it would be all that different from an MMO. Oh well, it’s their series, they can do what they want, I guess.
