New content is coming to Call of Duty: Modern Warfare in the future, despite the release of the latest installment Call Of Duty: Black Ops Cold War earlier this month. While Infinity Ward’s lead multiplayer visual effects artist, Reed Shingledecker, confirmed that new content is on the way, there are no other details on what we can expect.
Shingledecker was asked if season 7 would also be coming to Modern Warfare as well as the newer titles. In response, Shingledecker only stated, “[I] hope some info gets released soon so people know what's going on."
To support any hopes of more Modern Warfare content, a prominent industry insider recently suggested that the next title from the franchise would be a follow-up to 2019 title. Tom Henderson said, “it's looking like CoD for 2021 is another Modern Warfare title of some kind.”
There is more content coming. I just don't know the official name of it. Hope some info gets released soon so people know what's going on.

Outside of the Modern Warfare series, the release of Call Of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, has been hugely successful for Activision. Day one digital sales were the highest recorded in the history of the franchise.
In a statement on Twitter, the studio described the launch of Black Ops Cold War as “just the start”. Anna Malmhake, Activision Blizzard's EMEA’s managing director promised to deliver “an incredible amount of free post launch content, events and support for the entire community as Black Ops Cold War evolves just as we did last year with the release of Modern Warfare."
As previously reported, a Nuketown DLC pack is coming to Call Of Duty: Black Ops Cold War. Based on the iconic map from the Black Ops series, the DLC will be available with all copies of Black Ops Cold War purchased until December 4, at 2 AM PT. Nuketown 84 makes its debut on November 24.
Call Of Duty: Black Ops Cold War is out now and is available on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Series X/S, and PC
