“Modern Warfare II’s generational difference claimed to be ‘substantial’ in a bid by Activision to shift the player-base onto next-gen consoles,” said Ralph. “Removed features, intended for next-gen exclusivity, are still in limbo. As stock shortages remain a factor discouraging developers, and publishers alike to make that leap.”
Ralph, the leaker in question, announced some terrible news for PS4 and Xbox One owners on Twitter. While a release for last-gen PlayStation and Xbox systems is scheduled for next year, it will “significantly” lag behind the PS5 and Xbox Series X|S versions. However, while this is the current idea, it may alter in the future, as some in the game are apprehensive to make such a large leap while both platforms are still in use.
Unfortunately, this is the extent of the report, which should be taken with a grain of salt. As for the source, some of their previous reports have been collaborated by other Call of Duty leakers and insiders, suggesting they indeed have access to some level of information on the game, however, at the moment, many of their reports have yet to be validated and won’t be for some time.
At the moment of publishing, neither Infinity Ward nor Activision nor anyone involved with either have commented on any of this. We don’t expect any implicated party to budge on this for a variety of reasons, but if any do, we will be sure to update the story with any and everything salient.

According to a plethora of reports from a wide range of reputable and reliable sources, Call of Duty 2022 will be Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, Infinity Ward’s follow-up to its 2019 Modern Warfare reboot. None of this has been officially confirmed by Infinity Ward or its parent company, Activision, however, we do have new information about the next installment, albeit unofficial information from a prominent Call of Duty insider and leaker. Over on Twitter, the leaker in question, Ralph, relayed word of some bad news for those on PS4 and Xbox One. While next year’s installment is reportedly planned for the last-gen PlayStation and Xbox consoles, it will “substantially” lag behind the PS5 and Xbox Series X|S versions. That said, while this is the plan at the moment, it could change, with some of those on the game hesitant to make such a big leap while both consoles remain challenging to buy.
