Leaker claims that Modern Warfare 2 will get campaign DLC next year

The original Modern Warfare 2 from 2009 is widely considered the best Call of Duty game, both in terms of its multiplayer and single-player campaign.


2009's Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 is widely considered the game that took the Call of Duty franchise to the top. At the time, Call of Duty was caught in a three-way deadlock with the likes of Halo and Battlefield with several other fringe shooters cashing in on the first-person shooter hype. Since then, Call of Duty has evolved and become the world's foremost shooter franchise - big enough to make Sony worry that Microsoft will make it exclusive to the Xbox platform.

Leaker Modern Warfare Campaign Dlc Next Year Scaled
A vast majority of the earlier Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 leaks end up being true so there's no reason to start believing otherwise.

A huge part of what made Modern Warfare 2 so memorable is its campaign. The sequel didn't quite live up to the expectations set by Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, but it was an excellent follow-up that had yet to eschew the restraint and intimacy of the first game. True to this, when people talk about unforgettable Call of Duty moments, they often bring up a lot of moments from Modern Warfare 2. The Chief among them is the mission, No Russian, which was arguably the first in the series' long line of controversies.

Alas, who could forget that action-packed snowmobile section? How about the firefights as well as sieges at Burger Town and Makarakov? Finally, there's that gut-wrenching end-game sequence that's being teased to return in the next Call of Duty game.

Having said that, the return of Modern Warfare 2 later this month teases another potentially standard-setting installment that is expected to propel Call of Duty back to the top.

Leaker Modern Warfare Campaign Dlc Next Year
With only a few weeks left before Modern Warfare 2 hits store shelves, Activision Blizzard is ramping up the game's marketing efforts.

It's believed that Modern Warfare 2 will enjoy two years of post-launch support. According to the earlier leaks, this will include remastered classic Call of Duty maps. Now, the premium DLC will reportedly include more than multiplayer content. TheGhostofHope claims that the second-year plans for Modern Warfare 2 include a campaign DLC as well. Specifically, the same leaker points out that the campaign DLC will contain the map pack of fan-favorite Call of Duty maps.

Unfortunately, details about the future DLC for Modern Warfare 2 are far from clear. Until it becomes official, the only sure thing is that Activision Blizzard will release Modern Warfare 2 on the 28th, and those who pre-ordered the game can access it a week earlier.
