Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare Sequel Teased With Tie-In To Season 3

A sequel to the 2019 CoD: Modern Warfare smash hit seems all but inevitable now, as narrative director Taylor Kurosaki hints at a character's return.


Spoiler Warning: Call of Duty: Modern Warfare has been continuing on the story from its campaign through its multiplayer modes, and it's gone in some surprising directions. The biggest reveal so far has been that the character Alex, the US operative we last saw in the campaign preparing to sacrifice himself to destroy a facility, is still alive.

But while this might make it seem like Infinity Ward is trying to wrap up all the game's loose ends, a tweet from narrative director Taylor Kurosaki suggests that the series won't be done with Alex by the time a sequel arrives. Responding to a user who said that he wished Alex would be brought back for the sequel, Kurosaki responded "who says we won't?"

This isn't the first time Kurosaki has suggested that there's more to explore in a sequel, and it could still, ultimately, not mean anything--a Modern Warfare follow-up has not been announced yet. But it feels more likely than ever, particularly since Modern Warfare sold so well.

Aside from the Black Ops series, the Call of Duty series has not produced a sequel in some time, with Ghosts, Advanced Warfare, Infinite Warfare, and WW2 all being original stories (and Modern Warfare sitting somewhere between a reboot and a prequel). The Modern Warfare series is the most celebrated Call of Duty sub-brand, though, so it would make sense for Infinity Ward to stick with it.

Call of Duty recently expanded with the free-to-play battle royale shooter Call of Duty: Warzone. The game will try Fortnite-style events to keep players coming back each month.
