If you've been playing Warzone since Year 1 then you already know the kind of event we're talking about. To get people hyped for the new Call of Duty title each year, and to tie their various products together, they reveal the new game with a Warzone event.

The event usually lasts for 24 hours, and will involve you doing some kind of task that isn't related to the normal Battle Royale mode. Once you've done the task a trailer shows for the new game. Let's get into everything we know about this year's event, which will reveal Call of Duty 2023: Modern Warfare 3.

When Will MW3 Be Revealed In Warzone?

Modern Warfare 3 will be revealed via an in-game Warzone event, which is apparently taking place in August. This news comes from CharlieIntel, who has been leaking a lot of other important details recently.

  • If you want to upgrade to next-gen before MW3 is released, the cheapest option is by far the Xbox Series S.

What Will The In-Game Event Look Like?

If the last three years are anything to go by, they will create an event that plays on the major themes of the upcoming game. When they revealed Black Ops Cold War in Warzone, for instance, they gave players random hallucinations as if they were feeling the effects of some kind of mind control. This was a direct reference to Cold War mind control programs that feature heavily in the BOCW campaign.

So what are the major themes of MW3? All we have to go on right now is the ending of Modern Warfare II, and the subsequent raids.

The plot suggests that we are moving away from cartel territory and back to Makarov in Russia, who is about to hijack a plane (presumably the prologue of MW3). We're just guessing here, but we could see the game, and by extension the event, play on themes of Russian ultranationalism and some kind of terrorist threat.

What do you think the in-game event will be?

CoD 2023 is happening people, get the idea of a two-year-cycle out of your head:
