Call of Duty's ability to include a competitive playlist for those looking for an added level of competition varies on a regular basis. While most Treyarch titles feature some form of a ranked playlist, Infinity Ward's Modern Warfare series often leaves the feature on the sidelines much to the annoyance of players.

With the launch of Modern Warfare 2 on the horizon, many are beginning to wonder whether the game will feature crossplay capabilities and if Infinity Ward will feature a ranked playlist.

Modern Warfare 2 ranked play would be the first time the developer includes a competitive playlist and would act as the perfect place for aspiring pros to use the same rules as the Call of Duty League (CDL). With that said, find all there is to know about Modern Warfare 2 ranked play in our hub containing all the latest rumours and speculation.

Will Modern Warfare 2 have ranked play?

While Infinity Ward hasn't revealed anything about Modern Warfare 2 ranked play, notable Call of Duty leaker "TheGhostOfHope" claims the game will have ranked play.


Just like Vanguard, the leaker claims Treyarch will develop Modern Warfare 2 ranked play which means there's a high chance of the game using the same batch of ranks, skill rating, and rewards.

Modern Warfare 2 Ranked Play release date

Notable leaker @TheGhostOfHope claims Modern Warfare 2 ranked play will launch as part of Season One which is expected to begin in November.

Additionally, the launch of ranked play will coincide with the start of the 2022/23 Call of Duty League season.


Modern Warfare 2 ranked play developer

As mentioned above, Black Ops developer Treyarch will lead development of Modern Warfare 2 ranked play. This is certainly good news for fans of competitive Call of Duty as the developer is responsible for some of the best titles in the history of the shooter franchise.

Modern Warfare 2 Ranked Play skill divisions

Although no official information on ranked play has appeared, it's likely Modern Warfare 2 ranked play will use the same skill divisions as Vanguard ranked play.

Ranging from Contender to the top 250 players in the world, players will compete in matches against an opposing team of similar skill in order to ensure a competitive match.

In the coming months, Infinity Ward is likely to share more intel on what Modern Warfare 2 ranked play has to offer but in the meantime, initial information is based on what's already out there.
