As players have become accustomed to the bundles available in the Call of Duty shop being compatible with Warzone and limited to a specific premium episode of the series, a possible change is on the horizon with the upcoming release of Modern Warfare 3.
Recent rumors circulating online have sparked discussions about the content in the upcoming Call of Duty installment set to be released later this year. One particular rumor focuses on the “backwards compatibility” of items purchased in Modern Warfare 2.
According to the well-known Twitter account Modern Warzone, the new title might allow players to utilize operators, weapons, and other cosmetic elements obtained in MW2.

If the rumors are confirmed by Activision, it would signify a significant shift. For the first time, players would have immediate access to a vast collection of skins and operators. Additionally, a portion of the weaponry would align with the arsenal featured in the current chapter.
This potential compatibility could also support the notion that the game was initially conceptualized as an expansion for Modern Warfare 2 before the developers transformed it into a premium, standalone chapter.
Awaiting Official Confirmation and Copyright Issues
While fans eagerly await official confirmation of these rumors, it is worth noting that Activision may have chosen the title Modern Warfare 3 due to copyright concerns. This decision adds an intriguing layer to the discussion surrounding the game and its connection to the previous title.
As the release of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 draws nearer, players and fans alike are eager to discover the extent of cross-game compatibility and the potential inclusion of beloved MW2 cosmetics.
