It’s a huge day for Call of Duty fans as Modern Warfare 2 officially reveals the new Task Force 141.
In case you’ve somehow been out of the loop for the last few months, MW2 is our Call of Duty title for 2022. It seems that Activision recognizes how big of a success Modern Warfare 2 is going to be, and it’s already all but abandoning the struggling Vanguard.
In fact, although Warzone is getting a massive update tomorrow, Vanguard gets a new map, a new gun, and very little space in the recent blog post.
Meanwhile, we just got the official release date and artwork for Modern Warfare 2 in a new trailer!
But if that wasn’t enough for you, there’s more information dropping hot right now!
MW2 Reveals Task Force 141
Simon ‘Ghost’ Riley
A long-time fan favorite, Ghost will return on the cover of Modern Warfare 2. Whether or not he survives the game’s campaign this time around, remains to be seen.
Captain John Price
Perhaps our best-looking Captain Price model yet will be leading Task Force 141 on its newest mission this October.
Kyle ‘Gaz’ Garrick
One of the protagonists of Modern Warfare 2019, Gaz is an SAS Operator who has just recently been given his callsign.
John ‘Soap’ MacTavish
The iconic Soap MacTavish is back in business in MW2. Thankfully, this is a big improvement over his terrible appearance in Warzone where fans have taken to calling him ‘Bubble’.
Finally, Alejandro Vargas is a new face who is reportedly part of the Mexican Special Forces. What that means for him and Task Force 141, we’ll just have to wait and find out.
Don’t miss the upcoming reveal trailer for MW2 that’s dropping very soon!
What’s notable is that each of the Operators pictured above appear to have some strange map markings on their faces. Could this be a hint at Warzone 2, or some of the locations we’ll see in MW2’s map list?
And there’s more! After all, Warzone 2 will also reveal ‘groundbreaking innovations’ during its reveal later this year! We already know a little about what’s to come, with a new leak teasing the Warzone 2 map, gameplay, and loadout details last week.
But it seems that Warzone 2 may be changing name, one leaker claims, as Activision may believe the Battle Royale has poor player reception right now.
