Based on the leak, the year 2 expansion for Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 will include all the multiplayer maps from the original MW2 that was released in the year 2009. In addition, the expansion is said to feature classic maps from other Infinity Ward, Treyarch, and Sledgehammer developed entries in the series.
This information is in line with prior rumors, which suggested that the original Modern Warfare 2 maps would eventually be added to MWII, and that it would be the first entry in the series to receive 2 years of support, with Treyarch’s Call of Duty title not releasing until 2024. The remastered version of 2009’s Modern Warfare 2 likely didn’t include a multiplayer for this very reason, based on prior rumors.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II is the sequel to Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, which was released in 2019. On October 25, 2019, the latter was released for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. It is the sixteenth installment in the Call of Duty series and a reboot of the Modern Warfare sub-series.
The previous game took place in a realistic modern-day setting. The campaign featured a CIA officer and British SAS soldiers as they fought Russian invaders and Al-Qatala terrorists alongside rebels from the fictitious country of Urzikstan. The game’s Special Ops mode provided cooperative play missions that followed the plot.
The multiplayer mode allowed for cross-platform multiplayer and cross-platform progression for the first time in the series. It was designed to make the gameplay more tactical, and it contained additional features such as a Realism mode that turned off the HUD and a 64-player version of the Ground War mode. As a post-launch upgrade, Warzone, a free-to-play battle royale mode, was also added to the game.
