A leaker claims to reveal some of the characters that will be featured in the new version of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2.
2019’s Call of Duty: Modern Warfare rebooted the Modern Warfare sub-series, revamping some of the franchise’s most popular characters and moving the story forward so that it’s taking place in the present. The sequel, reportedly titled Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 like the 2009 MW2, is believed to be inactive development at Infinity Ward for release later this year. An official announcement for a 2022 version of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 has yet to be made, but a leaker has claimed to leak some of the characters and actors that will be featured in the game.
Leaker Ralph, who claims to have some kind of insider knowledge on Call of Duty, has recently released a list of “confirmed” Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 characters and actors. According to Ralph, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 will see the return of Barry Sloane as Captain Price as well as Craig Fairbrass as Ghost. Neil Ellice will supposedly be reprising his role as Soap MacTavish, while Rya Kihlstedt is said to be coming back as Kate Laswell. Ralph also lists actors Elias Toufexis, Troy Baker, and Warren Kole as appearing in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 in undisclosed roles.
Ralph does not provide any kind of evidence to back up their claims, so fans should take this information with a massive grain of salt. Enough reputable leakers have let the cat out of the bag that the 2022 Call of Duty game is Modern Warfare 2, so that part is easy to believe, and one would imagine that key characters would be returning in the sequel, though again, nothing official has been announced at the time of this writing.

The claim that Craig Fairbrass is playing Ghost in the 2022 version of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 is interesting. Fairbrass himself has pushed back against these rumours previously, but it does seem likely that Activision will be looking for someone other than Jeff Leach for the role, and Fairbrass seems like the obvious choice since he has experience voicing the character.
For the uninitiated, Craig Fairbrass was the voice of Ghost in the original Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, whereas Jeff Leach voiced the character in the 2019 Call of Duty: Modern Warfare reboot. However, Activision cut ties with Leach after he was accused of making sexist comments while live streaming.
Based on how Call of Duty reveals have gone down in recent years, fans should be able to expect an official reveal for the 2022 Call of Duty game late summer, at which point more details about the game’s story, characters, and the actors involved will come to light. Until then, expect the rumours, leaks, and speculation to continue.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 is rumoured to be in development.
