CoD players are beginning to believe that Modern Warfare 2 could offer custom modes created by fans, after a user spotted a hint that the game will support Steam Workshop on PC.

For the first time since the early 2000s, there will be no Call of Duty title in 2023 after Treyarch’s next project was pushed back by a year. This means that Modern Warfare 2 will have to keep players occupied for twice as long as usual.

While Infinity Ward is cramming plenty of interesting new features and mechanics into the Modern Warfare 2 campaign and multiplayer, keeping the community engaged until 2024 will be no easy task.

According to one eagle-eyed player, fan-made modes could be a way of extending Modern Warfare 2’s longevity, as they noticed a hint that the game could feature Steam Workshop support.

Steam Workshop is part of Valve’s service where players can share mods and custom creations for their favorite games that support the feature. According to Reddit user AnotherGibaway, Modern Warfare 2 could be one of these games when it launches in Novmember.

They claimed that they were following the game on Steam, meaning they receive a notification when mods are released on Steam Workshop, and they received one recently for Modern Warfare 2.

The OP said: “Only games that are being planned to receive Workshop support or already have it implemented receive the ‘Workshop items posted this week’ updates. I just saw this for MWII.

“You’ll have to take my word as I don’t have any way to prove this obviously, but if you’re following the game, go on your community home page and see if you get it.”

Mods are a popular way to breathe new life into a game, allowing the community to get creative and share new, interesting features with one another. This is why a series like Halo introduced Custom Games to let players experiment with wacky ideas.

As another poster pointed out, with Infinity Ward reportedly working on an Escape From Tarkov-inspired mode called DMZ instead, fans could even make their own Zombies mode through Steam Workshop.

For now, this is all just speculation until the developers confirm that mods will be supported. But there’s no doubt that Steam Workshop could be an interesting method of letting players engage with Modern Warfare 2 in a different way.
