Concept art of the upcoming 2024 Call of Duty game and Modern Warfare 2 have allegedly leaked online.
As spotted by ResetEra, Twitter user RealityUK – although they’ve had other accounts taken offline by DMCA strikes – shared the images over the weekend, posting a full thread of what seem to be loading screens from the shooter which they say were discovered in Warzone Mobile test files. [UPDATE: This account has, predictably, also now been shut down.]
If true, they show that the upcoming multiplayer maps from Modern Warfare 2 will include a Grand Prix, an oil field, and a museum, as well as others called Codename: SABA, and Hydro.
Other map locations without images are seemingly named Esports Gym, Exhume, Fallout, Favela – from 2009’s Modern Warfare 2, perhaps? – Firing Range, Floating Bay, Killhouse, Lighthouse, Luxury, Mountain Town, and Narcos.
The user also shared two screenshots reportedly taken from “Treyarch’s next game HAHAHA”, too: one called Stealth – it features flames, a familiar-looking aircraft, and a toppled US flag – and another called Pillage, which looks like it could be a very fancy place indeed were it not for the giant hole in the wall.
“Unfortunately, not every map has a loading screen at this time. So, I will post them when they get added,” the Twitterer explained. “There’s still more to come though, just not as much as expected.”
As part of its ongoing war against cheaters, the team behind Call of Duty’s server-side and kernel-level anti-cheat solution, known as Ricochet, has unveiled a new mitigation technique that takes a player’s weapons (and fists) away when the system identifies them as a cheater.
Damage Shield, Richochet’s first major mitigation technique, essentially works by turning on God Mode for all legitimate players when a cheater is detected in-match. Cloaking, meanwhile, makes it impossible for detected cheaters to see opponents and bullets, or even hear sounds.
Activision’s flagship battle royale Warzone recently became even wackier than usual with an appearance of The Terminator. Season four of Warzone gives you the option to play as the original T-800 or its succesor, the T-1000.
