Activision has confirmed that Modern Warfare 2 weapons, packs, and operators will carry over to Call of Duty 2023.
After a period of intense leaks related to this year’s game, expected to be Modern Warfare 3, the official Call of Duty Twitter account has published a survey that leaves fans in no doubt about porting over their digital items. Sledgehammer Games, the developer of Call of Duty, who is leading the work on this year’s game, retweeted the post.

Typically, items purchased for the main Call of Duty game do not carry over to the next entry. But Activision was criticized when it announced that the cosmetics would not carry over from the battle royale game Warzone to its sequel, Warzone 2.0.
Modern Warfare 3 is set to continue the story set by last year’s Modern Warfare 2 campaign, and it comes just one year later, breaking with the tradition of rotating release between Modern Warfare, Black Ops, and other sub-brands on a yearly basis.
The leaked images and information of Modern Warfare 3 appear to have emerged from a closed alpha test. Unconfirmed scraps of information point to the return of the classic Call of Duty mini-map, which is sure to be a crowd pleaser. Perks are supposed to be gear classes (Ninja Returns). It’s also rumored that remastered versions of the original Modern Warfare 2 and Scrapyard maps will return with Modern Warfare 3. There are also reports of War mode from Call of Duty: WW2 in Modern Warfare 3, and Outbreak returning in the form of Outbreak 2.0.
Activision left it late to reveal this year’s Call of Duty, but Microsoft’s ongoing battle to buy the company for $69 billion may have delayed its announcement plans. With the takeover saga seemingly drawing to a close, Activision may be preparing for an imminent reveal.
