Spec Ops has been confirmed to return in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II (2022), but it’s long been rumored that the game will include a huge and ambitious third mode called DMZ, so what does the return of Spec Ops really mean? Don’t worry, because we’re here to break down the latest Cod news. In this article, we will explain how Spec Ops has been confirmed for modern warfare ii and what that means for DMZ.
Special Ops confirmed for Modern Warfare II
Spec Ops, a cooperative side mode where players can fight AI in waves or complete missions and the like, has been all over the Modern war game outside call of duty 4 modern warfare. like zombies with covert operationsSpec Ops is a hallmark of the Modern war subseries, although it has become less and less popular over the years.
It has become less popular, in part, because not all Spec Ops modes are created equal. special operations in Modern war (2019), for example, saw players just drop into Verdansk to fight AI players, stupid AI players. Overall, it was pretty boring and widely dismissed by the fanbase. Consequently, there has been very little enthusiasm for Spec Ops in modern warfare ii.

However, special operations it is returning, and according to Infinity Ward, it will be an ‘evolved’ version of the mode. The new changes to Spec Ops will dovetail nicely with the major AI improvements that Infinity Ward has been touting. modern warfare ii Y war zone 2. So at least the AI soldiers we fight in Spec Ops will be a bit smarter.
Infinity Ward hasn’t said much about what’s to come in Spec Ops in modern warfare iibut the studio has mentioned that Spec Ops will be a “tactical cooperative mode [that] improves your teamwork skills [and] also sets the stage for [multiplayer]” which could describe, essentially, all Spec Ops modes in all Cod games.
However, killing bots in custom games in Obligations has long been the go-to way for those who care to warm up and practice their skills, and ever since Infinity Ward they’ve been harping on how Spec Ops is good practice for multiplayer and how much they’ve improved the AI to be more like the real human players. , it is possible that Spec Ops can be an effective way to practice, warm up and test a particular weapon.

Infinity Ward has also confirmed that Zombies will not be in modern warfare iiso we can expect Spec Ops to be, once again, the main traditional cooperative mode of modern warfare iimuch like it has been historically, though hopefully less like Spec Ops from Modern war (2019) and more like the robust and mechanically complex Zombies experience from cold war black ops.
DMZ, Free-to-Play and Open-World Call of Duty
Spec Ops coming to a Modern war game is not crazy news, in a sense, but in a way, it is reaching modern warfare ii it’s kind of a surprise. See, the thing is, Spec Ops was so hated on Modern war (2019) that as rumors about DMZ have come out, the rumored third mode of modern warfare iimany simply assumed that it would naturally replace Spec Ops.
DMZ, for those who don’t know, is reported to be a Escape from Tarkov –style, type of experience complete-objectives-in-an-open-world-and-extract. It will be more tactical than war zone and traditional Cod but not as harsh as the real Tarkov, and it will be complete with its own mechanics, maps designed for the mode itself, and a long plan for live service updates.

What’s more, DMZ is supposed to have had the longest development cycle in Cod story, originally planned for inclusion in Modern war (2019) but cut to give it more development time. This mode will have been worked for the entire duration of two Cod development cycles of the game, which is quite a lot, which means that the mode should be quite large and robust.
However, Spec Ops isn’t being replaced, and what’s actually true is that Infinity Ward hasn’t officially confirmed anything about DMZ, which is probably not the name of the mode but an internal codename. So with the news that Spec Ops it is arriving to modern warfare ii Y nothing official about DMZ, many wonder if DMZ is still in modern warfare ii.
However, it gets more complicated. Infinity Ward recently made headlines with a job posting seeking a lead narrative developer for an upcoming open world RPG. After, Obligations It’s also supposed to get a new free game in 2023, partly to supplement the lack of a mainline. Obligations the game is coming in 2023. So the questions become, is the DMZ cut off from modern warfare ii? Is it your own game? Coming in 2023?

We don’t have any official answers, but we can do some informed reading between the lines here. First of all, Spec Ops is unlikely to be a replacement for DMZ, but more of an addition, considering how much time has been invested in DMZ and how basic Spec Ops was. Modern war (2019) not to mention its popularity. Second, Treyarch is rumored to be working on the free-to-play game. Cod game in 2023, which makes a lot of sense for a few different reasons together.
The first and foremost reason is that Treyarch is rumored to be working on the free-to-play game. Cod. The second reason comes down to how much sense this makes. Cod 2024 is being run by Treyarch, who also ran Ranked and Zombies in Vanguard at the top of 2020 Cold War and two years of support for that game, so they’re stretched. However, with this extra year to Cod 2024, Treyarch will have the opportunity to set the sun Cold War and end the help in Vanguardleaving the studio some bandwidth aside from the work on Cod 2024.
It makes more sense for Treyarch to develop a standalone zombie game or a standalone ranked game than for Infinity Ward to develop modern warfare ii, war zone 2and a free to play open world RPG by 2023 while the studio provides support modern warfare ii throughout 2023. And it makes sense that the “open world RPG” described in the job posting simply refers to DMZ as a mode, as a project, as an experience that the person hired will work on “as his own game.” speak, not that an actual separate game is coming.
