According to leaker ‘RalphsValve,’ the Modern Warfare sequel will be a collaborative effort from 11 different developers. Infinity Ward is expected to be the lead studio with Treyarch also helping out.

Here are all the rumored Modern Warfare 2 developers:

  • Demonware
  • High Moon Studios
  • Toys for Bob
  • Infinity Ward Austin, TX
  • Infinity Ward Poland
  • Infinity Ward, LA
  • Beenox
  • Activision
  • Raven Software
  • Sledgehammer Games

One CoD fan was immediately concerned at this news, claiming that this many studios being involved with Modern Warfare 2 could be a sign of major development problems, citing Battlefield 2042‘s development as an example.

The leaker quickly shut down that idea, stating that it was a completely different situation: “Circumstances are different; it was earlier described to me as a ‘once-in-a-generation’ title – hence why essentially every Activision Studio are assisting the game’s development. Things are moving smoothly.”

These claims were corroborated by prominent Call of Duty insider Tom Henderson, who discussed the Modern Warfare sequel in a new video, also alleviating concerns about the game’s development:

“It shouldn’t be a massive cause for concern, as the majority of these studios have had some involvement in the past couple of years for every single Call of Duty title, especially with the likes of Call of Duty: Vanguard.”

He then claimed that Modern Warfare 2’s development is currently “running smoothly” before adding that the game is now said to be in its Alpha stage.

It’s worth keeping in mind that these are currently just leaks, so you should take this information with a grain of salt. Hopefully, Activision will officially confirm some of these details in the coming months.
