Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II is the sequel to 2019’s Call of Duty: Modern Warfare. The latter was published on October 25, 2019, for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. It is the sixteenth overall chapter in the Call of Duty franchise, as well as a reboot of the Modern Warfare sub-series.
The previous game was situated in a realistic and contemporary environment. The campaign followed a CIA officer and British SAS soldiers as they joined forces with rebels from the imaginary country of Urzikstan to fight Russian invaders and Al-Qatala terrorists. The Special Ops mode of the game included cooperative play missions that follow the storyline.
For the first time in the series, the multiplayer mode enabled cross-platform multiplayer and cross-platform progression. It was overhauled to make the gameplay more tactical, and it also included new features, including a Realism mode that disabled the HUD and a version of the Ground War mode that allowed 64 people. Warzone, a free-to-play battle royale mode, was also added as a post-launch upgrade.
