“Task Force 141 makes its massive return with a global squad of iconic veterans,” it says. “These Operators include Captain John Price, Simon ‘Ghost’ Riley, John ‘Soap’ MacTavish, Kyle ‘Gaz’ Garrick and introducing Mexican Special Forces Colonel Alejandro Vargas.”
The video features a large boat bearing a Modern Warfare 2 banner on top, driving beneath a bridge, and docks, aligning with other banners on the ground. The banners align to form a complete image revealing the return of Ghost. Consequently, this cover art is the first official artwork of the upcoming sequel. Fans can also expect more details in a full trailer that the developers will release in June.
Modern Warfare 2 is the sequel to the Modern Warfare remake, released in 2019. The two games are remakes of the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare games from the 2000s. Activision Blizzard officially announced Modern Warfare 2 earlier this year and revealed the logo in April. Infinity Ward will develop the game, which is part of the annual franchise.
