A selected group of content creators were invited to a roundtable discussion with staff at Infinity Ward. Pat Kelly hosted the call with content creators, and some folks from Infinity Ward, and Raven Software were available to answer some questions after a speech done by Patrick.
- Infinity Ward confirmed that Call of Duty 2022 is in fact the sequel to Modern Warfare (2019).
- No firm release date was confirmed for Call of Duty 2022, but the developers said it’d arrive in Fall 2022.

- Infinity Ward’s intention with Call of Duty 2022 and the next iteration of Warzone is to improve players’ experience.
- The next iteration of Warzone is being developed in tandem with Call of Duty 2022.
- According to the developers, Warzone was never intended to go beyond the first update. It was always intended to be a “one-off” project, kinda like BlackOut.
- The developers said that Warzone was in a broken state, so with that in mind, they developed Warzone 2 to work seamlessly with Call of Duty 2022.
- Kelly said that Warzone 2 will have some Battle Royale disruption(s), and innovations. Kelly boasted that Warzone is a “massive evolution of Battle Royale.” He took it further, and elaborated that Call of Duty 2022 and/or Warzone will feature a “incredibly ambitious sandbox mode.”
