From its first installment to Modern Warfare 2, the Call of Duty franchise is an FPS titan in the gaming world.

With almost two decades of thrilling gunplay, one may ask the question, “How many Call of Duty games are there?”

How many Call of Duty games are there in the main series?

The CoD franchise has a total of 21 released main titles, with the latest title being Modern Warfare 2.

The games are typically categorized by the setting of the game and its lead developer.

While the main series does not consider remasters and ports, Modern Warfare (2019) and Modern Warfare 2 (2022) count as reboots of the MW series.

It seems that the next game in the series won’t be straying far from the current.

As of now, it’s only rumored, but it seems pretty certain that the next installment in the Call of Duty franchise will be Modern Warfare 3.

According to the leaks, “Modern Warfare 3 will feature campaign, multiplayer, zombies, and a new Warzone 2 map during the title’s first season.”

The game succeeds Modern Warfare 2 as the partnered title of the Warzone titles.

The release of Warzone 2 coincided with the launch of Modern Warfare 2, now sending BR players into the new desert locale of Al Mazrah. Since then, maps have changed and it seems this will be no different.

Modern Warfare 3 is set to change the battle royale map to an expansion of Las Almas according to the leaks.
