Fans of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 wondering which multiplayer game modes will be introduced seem to be in luck, as the new teaser suggests that Domination and Capture the Flag are returning. Although Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 is likely to have a lot of modes beyond that, it’s nice to get confirmation that several classic games are coming back.
Almost every fan of the Call of Duty franchise is familiar with Domination, as it is the most popular task-based mode in the series. Just like in the Call of Duty game, as in Team Deathmatch or Search and Destroy, Domination sees players fighting for control of three flags. As for “Capture the Flag“, it also focuses around flags for its own purposes, although in it two teams fight to protect one flag from capture.
The teaser in question is for the upcoming Call of Duty Next event and doesn’t seem to contain any real information, but it actually has a lot of Easter eggs in it. These include possible Warzone attractions and perk logos, which can be easily overlooked given the brevity of the teaser. Since the event is intended to showcase both Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 and Warzone 2.0, it makes sense to see bows to both games. According to the famous Call of Duty leader @TheGhostOfHope, two of these links relate to the aforementioned MW2 game modes.
Some time ago, some data miners were able to access the files of the upcoming Call of Duty: Warzone Mobile, revealing many details about the franchise’s content pipeline. This included a series of game mode icons, and of course, there are leaked symbols in this teaser for both Dominance and Capture the Flag. Perhaps the game modes will be confirmed on Call of Duty Next, although in any case it is likely that they will be introduced in the upcoming Infinity Ward game.
Although fans had no doubt that they would see Domination again, the presence of Capture the Flag at the launch would be a welcome surprise. In recent years, it has either been removed from the lineup, as in Call of Duty: Ghosts, or added after launch, as in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2019. While Capture the Flag may not be as popular as playlists like Domination, the mode has a passionate fan base that would surely like to enjoy it from the very beginning.
Since players have also recently received several teasers for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 cards, a lot of hype has been created around Call of Duty Next and the upcoming beta version. “Supremacy” and “Capture the Flag” could be played even during the testing period, but for now, fans can rest easy knowing that they will most likely be in the game at launch.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 is released on October 28 on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X.
