Call of Duty: Mobile is getting two more Modern Warfare-centric maps in future updates as both Terminal and Shipment have hit the public test server. 

Ever since being released back in October of 2019, Call of Duty: Mobile has given CoD fans a platform to play some of their favorite maps and mode while using a number of classic weapons. Games like Call of Duty 4 and Black Ops 2 are represented, but the focus has been on Modern Warfare 2 recently.

Following the Season 8 update, CoD Mobile players were given the keys to Highrise as the fan-favorite map was introduced into multiplayer. 

Boneyard is also available in the mobile game, and it appears as if the popular MW2 maps will soon be joined by others from the series.

Infinity Ward - Call of Duty 4: Modern WarfareShipment originally grew in popularity as a smaller map to settle 1v1s in private lobbies.

Call of Duty YouTuber HawksNest noted that in the most recent update to the public test server, both Terminal and Shipment were added as being available to try out in different multiplayer modes.

If you’re expecting changes, or to see the most recent version of Shipment that is currently available in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, don’t worry too much. Both maps come with their original layouts but Shipment has CoD: WWII theming.

That means that, yes, you can sit with a sniper in Terminal and gun down unexpecting enemies who are trying to cross the hallway of danger or get down the big orange slide from the open side of the plane.

With the maps being tested on the public test server, their official introductions to the game might not be all that far away. Though, the Gulag was tested prior to the start of season seven and was introduced a ways after its testing. 

The CoD Mobile developers have not, at the time of writing, said anything about their possible arrival so we’ll just have to wait and see what happens.

Call of Duty 2021 leaks hint at new Modern Warfare follow up

Before Black Ops Cold War arrives, we may already have our first hint of next year’s Call of Duty setting as a prominent leaker has teased a new Modern Warfare sequel.

While the Call of Duty franchise has 17 mainline entries covering a wide array of timelines, two names stand out as the most iconic. Both the Black Ops series and the Modern Warfare series have seen the most iterations over the years. 

Treyarch has already released four titles in the Black Ops series with Cold War just weeks away. Meanwhile, Infinity Ward has four entries in the Modern Warfare series, the original trilogy along with 2019’s reboot. Now, it seems as though a fifth could also be on the way with Infinity Ward at the helm.

Sledgehammer Games and Raven Software will reportedly be taking a back seat. Instead of the typical three-year development cycle, Infinity Ward has just two-years to work with. We’re still 12 months off from 2021’s mystery release, but we may already have our first details on next year’s title.

Could Price’s story continue in 2021’s Call of Duty?

“It’s looking like CoD for 2021 is another Modern Warfare title of some kind,” prominent leaker Tom Henderson revealed. Not a whole lot is known beyond that key detail, though the setting for the next release appears to be locked in. 

“Understandably not a lot of information as of yet, but it’s a modern-day setting,” he confirmed. Given Modern Warfare’s hard reboot with 2019’s release, could a new sequel be the next step? This would essentially bypass the original Modern Warfare 2 from 2009 if Activision opts for another identical title.

To avoid even more confusion, there’s a good chance the name is a little different, similar to how Black Ops added Cold War to the title for 2020’s drop, despite it being a direct follow up to Black Ops 1. So expect to see Modern Warfare: ‘something something’ as the likely 2021 title.

This could see a direct continuation from where 2019’s game left off. John Price is looking to assemble a team of classic characters to put a stop to Russian terrorist Victor Zakhaev. If Warzone’s ongoing storyline doesn’t beat the single-player campaign to the punch, this could be our objective in 2021’s release.

While this aspect is purely speculation, the leaker also considered the original Modern Warfare 2 being bundled in. No different from how Infinity Warfare launched with Modern Warfare remastered in 2016.

We’re still months away from any official information on the 2021 title, so take this with a grain of salt for now. Black Ops Cold War is the focus for Activision. Anything regarding next year’s game will be kept under wraps for quite some time yet.
