A dark launch
This came a week after its maker, Activision, went “dark” on social media by changing its profile pictures as well as header images into what looks like an entirely dark image. However, a closer look revealed that the image was actually a silhouette of the fan-favorite character Ghost, who made his debut in the original 2009 release of Modern Warfare 2.
What does the logo look like?
The logo resembles a mesh of the characters ‘“M,” “W,” and “II” set in grey and green on a black background. With the release, fans were quick to draw strong resemblances to the famous logo of the Nine Inch Nails band.
The logo animation also includes some additional indistinct audio chatter, along the lines of what appears to be a topographical map. It is also possible that the audio and additional assets may contain clues to the game.
The official post on the Call of Duty Twitter handle contains a Task Force 141 emblem and perhaps coordinates leading to Singapore, but make sure to check it out yourself and help decipher what else you think might be hidden.
More about Modern Warfare 2
While announcing the game back in February 2022, Activision had promised that Modern Warfare 2 will be the most advanced special ops game in its Call of Duty line-up, with over 11 studios working on the development.
The storyline sets Task Force 141 against a deadly Columbian drug cartel, and involves increased close-quarter combat and trickier decision-making while incorporating the classic set-piece movements of the Call of Duty franchise.

The Modern Warfare 2 launch is also likely to mark the end of the annual release schedule of Call of Duty, with Bloomberg reporting that Call of Duty’s planned release of 2023 has been pushed back to 2024. Activision is more likely to focus on streamlining Modern Warfare 2 – along with its free-to-play combat arena, Call of Duty: Warzone – gaming experience by rolling out a Season 2 for both games.
