Call of Duty players might be able to get their hands on Modern Warfare 2 sooner than anticipated as CoD leakers suggest issues with Vanguard are moving up its release date.

Well-known Call of Duty leaker Tom Henderson has provided new information concerning Modern Warfare 2’s release window. The new 2022 Call of Duty title already has fans excited about the prospect of diving back into nostalgic maps and it’s looking like they’ll be able to do so earlier than expected.

The previous two Call of Duty titles were released one to two weeks into November but Henderson suggests we’ll be receiving the next iteration as much as a month earlier alongside major changes to Warzone.

Blacks Ops: Cold War launched on November 13 while Vanguard hit stores on November 5, but Modern Warfare 2 might be scrapping the November window in favor of an early October release date.

Henderson states that the reason behind this decision is to compensate for the poor sales numbers that Vanguard produced and that we should receive additional information as early as Summer 2022.

The renowned leaker goes on to explain that the decision to advance the release date seems to be a strategic move to maximize profit after Vanguard left investors displeased, “I’d imagine a couple of weeks can make all the difference to investors that want to see a stronger quarter.”

Call of Duty fans can also expect a “big” update to Warzone following the release of Modern Warfare 2. It will be interesting to see where the developers decide to take the battle royale as the franchise returns to its roots.

After all, Warzone debuted alongside Modern Warfare (2019) and CoD 2022 is set to be a direct sequel to the beloved game. Rumors of classic MW2 POIs joining Warzone are setting expectations high for the future of the franchise.

Once we know more about Modern Warfare 2’s official release date we’ll be sure to provide an update but for now, check out every weapon buff & nerf in Warzone’s mid-season update.
