Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 release date confirmed, as beta information leak

The release date for this year's Call of Duty has been announced as the build-up to a full reveal for Modern Warfare 2 continues - the game will hit shelves on 28 October 2022.

Despite only appearing in a handful of missions, one of the most popular characters from the 2009 version of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 was Simon "Ghost" Riley.

Unsurprisingly it confirms that Captain Price and Gaz will be returning after starring in 2019's Modern Warfare reboot, while iconic characters Soap and Ghost will be in Task Force 141 this time around, for the sequel.

Roukin took to Twitter to confirm that he would be playing the role of Ghost in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, saying that his work on the project started about a year ago.

Roukin expressed gratitude to both Infinity Ward and Activision for the opportunity, describing Modern Warfare 2 as "special."

In 2021, one leaker revealed(opens in new tab) that Infinity Ward was investing in an Escape from Tarkov-style mode called "DMZ".
