As teased by the Call of Duty Twitter account, an upcoming event in Warzone Season 5 will be revealing the upcoming COD game for 2023. While it was purposely left “redacted” by the account and the Call of Duty blog, it is believed to be the leaked Modern Warfare 3.

The leaks have also been revealing the supposed MW3 release date, which is said to allow you to transfer your content from MW2 to the 2023 game. This event will have you “join the ranks of Shadow Company to take on Konni forces and secure the chemical weapon threat before it’s too late.” More details on the event will be revealed on Call of Duty’s social channels.
