Modern Warfare II Ranked Play Is Coming In 2023

From 2023, Ranked Play will be arriving for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II, according to a tweet from Vanguard developer Treyarch Studios. The studio confirmed via social media that they would work with their partners to further deliver competitive modes and rewards, ranked skill divisions, visible skill ratings, and a top 250 leaderboard. 2023 is a vague release window, yet Treyarch added that “more details” would be coming soon. 

As Modern Warfare II brings about a new era for the shooter franchise, League Play and Ranked Play for Black Ops Cold War and Vanguard will be phased out. Players are advised by Treyarch to grab any remaining rewards from these current titles by Nov. 22 or risk losing out, as the games will, presumably, no longer be available. So, while ranked play won’t see the light of day upon the launch of Season One later in the month, it’s unlikely players will need to wait long for its arrival.

Modern Warfare 2 became an immediate success on launch, with a record-breaking debut.

Treyarch also said that the League Play and Ranked Play from the past two franchise entries has inspired the upcoming Ranked Play of Modern Warfare II.  “The success of these modes has directly contributed to the future of Ranked Play. We sincerely thank you for all the data, feedback, and time played that was collected over the past two years,” the studio added in another tweet. 

Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare II launched on Oct. 28 across all major platforms, including the PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, and PC via and Steam. Also, the next iteration of Warzone is scheduled to launch on Nov. 16, less than a month before Spec Ops arrives.
