Infinity Ward suggested moving towards a brutal plotline with Modern Warfare 2. The plotline is necessary for them to convey the message they intend to.

The old-school Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 came out in 2009. The “No Russian” campaign mission forced the players to shoot innocent NPCs in an airport. Following a successful release came controversy and the mission caused Geneva Convention to respond, and Activision received bans from many countries concerning the game’s sales.

RalphsValve, one of the most reputed leakers, tweeted today that the game will have a vast scale of brutality in its Campaign.

One Infinity Ward associate told him,

“The topic of ‘Modern Warfare’ isn’t something to play about with; we’re ready to bear the brunt for what our Campaign intends to tell, though we’re pleased with its messages.”

Modern Warfare (2019) has one of the most realistic and brutal plotlines among all of the Call of Duty games. The game delivered a strong message with its terrorist plotline that cemented a strong foundation for the infamous Task Force 141.

The leaks suggest that the game will put Task Force 141 against cartels. Brutality and real-life situations will be critical points of the game’s plotline. We will see Captain Price leading Task Force 141 with returning old school characters Kyle “Gaz” Garrick, Johnny “Soap” Mactavish, and Simon “Ghost” Riley.

The main concern for Activision would be Warzone 2, which is supposedly coming out with the launch of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2. Warzone has been one of the most successful titles for Activision. With Microsoft acquiring Activision-Blizzard, multiplayer and Warzone 2 will be a significant aspect of the upcoming game.
