This year’s Call of Duty game isn’t simply an expansion to Modern Warfare II, but a fully fledged sequel titled Call of Duty: Modern Warfare III, according to Insider Gaming’s sources. Modern Warfare III, which is reportedly in development at Sledgehammer Games, is said to feature a new campaign, multiplayer, and zombie mode, not to mention a new Warzone 2 map during its first season, and while there doesn’t appear to any story details for the campaign yet, the zombie mode is expected to be a continuation of Outbreak that may or may not end up being free to play. Bloomberg reported last year that 2023’s Call of Duty title would be a “premium” expansion of Infinity Ward’s Modern Warfare II, but apparently, it’s become something more ambitious.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare III Key Dates (Rumored)

  • Beta weekend 1 (PS4/PS5) – October 6, 2023 – October 10, 2023
  • Beta weekend 2 (PS4/PS5/Xbox One/Xbox Series X|S/PC) – October 12, 2023 – October 16, 2023
  • Campaign Early Access (PS4/PS5/Xbox One/Xbox Series X|S/PC) – November 2, 2023
  • Full Release (PS4/PS5/Xbox One/Xbox Series X|S/PC) – November 10, 2023
  • Season 1 Launch / New Warzone Map – December 5, 2023

From an Insider Gaming report:

Las Almas, the map found within the Modern Warfare 2 campaign will be Modern Warfare 3’s fully-fledged Battle Royale map. It’s understood that the map will launch during Season 1 – Which is currently penciled in to launch at the beginning of December.

For Modern Warfare 3 zombies, several sources have said that the mode is essentially an Outbreak 2.0. It’s understood that Activision is currently weighing the possibilities on if the mode should be a part of the premium title or not, or if it makes more sense for the mode to be a free-to-play experience.
