Apple's new iPad 9 is nearly as good as the iPad Air 4, for half the price

Our iPad Air 4 review named it one of the best tablets you can buy, in large part because of its elegant design, great hardware, and capacity to stand in as a laptop replacement — provided you pair it with a Magic Keyboard

When it comes time to choosing between the iPad 9 (2021) and the iPad Air 4 (2020), you see the former has a somewhat dated design and less powerful processor. That said, it's nearly half the price of the iPad Air 4, and has a better front-facing camera with support for Apple's new Center Stage video chat feature.

So which iPad is right for your needs? This article will help you answer that question with an in-depth comparison of the two tablets' strengths and weaknesses.

The entry-level iPad has always been Apple's cheapest tablet, and the company did nothing to change that up in 2021. Like its predecessor, the new iPad 9 (2021) has a starting price of $329, though Apple will bump that down to $299 for students and teachers.

However, there is one notable change in what you get for that price: storage. Apple has finally upgraded the entry-level iPad's storage capacity to 64 GB, double the paltry 32 GB that earlier iPad models shipped with by default. 32 GB is, quite frankly, an insultingly small amount of space if you plan on using your iPad to use apps, play games, and watch videos, all of which demand meaningful storage space. 

The fact that the new iPad 9 (2021) ships with 64 GB at minimum is a welcome change — though you might still think about paying an extra $150 for the 256 GB model, since even 64 GB can get filled up quick if you download a lot of media.

With its starting price of $599, the iPad Air 4 (2020) costs nearly twice as much as the iPad 9. It also ships with 64 GB of storage by default, with an option to get 256 GB for $150 extra. However, that $600+ price tag comes with some significant benefits: the iPad Air 4 is more powerful, smaller, and lighter than the iPad 9, with a slightly better screen.

There are some big differences between the iPad 9 and iPad Air 4, design-wise: the iPad 9 cleaves to Apple's classic iPad design, with rounded edges and thick bezels around the screen. It comes in the same two colors as its predecessor (Silver and Space Gray), and has the same 9.8 x 6.8 x 0.29-inch measurements. If you picture an iPad in your mind, chances are you'll be looking at something like the new iPad 9.

The iPad Air 4 looks a little different: it's a bit smaller and lighter, weighing just 1 pound and measuring 9.7 x 7 x 0.24 inches. More notably, it has thinner bezels than the classic iPad (thanks to its edge-to-edge display) and flat edges. It's effectively the same design and size as Apple's 11-inch iPad Pro (2021), though the iPad Air 4 is a bit lighter. It also comes in five different colors (green, silver, Space Gray, Sky Blue and or Rose Gold), a significant improvement over the stolid iPad 9's choice of silver or Space Gray.

As we compare the design and ports of these two tablets, it's clear they represent the two remaining iPad input/output philosophies. 

Despite being released in 2021, when it seems like every device (including iPads) charges via USB-C, the iPad 9 still sports a Lightning port. This is disappointing, since it means you'll have to keep a Lightning cable with you if you want to keep your iPad charged (that iPhone charging cable gets to work overtime) . However, there's a silver lining to the dated design of the iPad 9: it also still has a headphone jack, making it the only contemporary iPad to offer such a luxury. If wired headphones are important to you, that's a big deal.

The iPad Air 4 offers no such luxury, of course: you'll have to use Bluetooth headphones if you want to want to do some private listening on this tablet. However, it does offer the more convenient USB-C port for charging, and the rear-mounted Smart Connector port for Apple's excellent Magic Keyboard (which offers pass-through USB-C charging).

Despite being a bit smaller than the new iPad 9, the iPad Air 4 actually offers a slightly bigger, better screen thanks to its edge-to-edge display. 

The iPad Air 4's 10.9-inch display has a resolution of 2360x1640 pixels, for an approximate pixel density of 264 ppi. It also has support for the P3 color gamut, as well as Apple's True Tone tech that adjusts the display to complement ambient lighting.

The new iPad 9 has a slightly smaller display with a similar pixel density. Its 10.2-inch screen has a display resolution of 2160x1620, meaning it also has an approximate pixel density of 264 PPI. It doesn't have the same P3 color gamut support as the iPad Air 4, but it does support True Tone.

Both tablets are advertised as achieving up to 500 nits of brightness, though in our lab testing we measured the iPad Air 4's screen as topping out at an average brightness of 440 nits. Both also offer a fingerprint-resistant oleophobic coating, though the iPad Air 4 includes a fully-laminated display with anti-reflective coating on top of that. 

There's a small but significant difference in the performance capabilities of the iPad 9 vs. the iPad Air 4. Despite being the newer tablet, the iPad 9 (2021) runs on Apple's older A13 Bionic chip, whereas the iPad Air 4 (2020) packs the more powerful A14 Bionic.

The Apple A13 Bionic chip driving the iPad 9 is an improvement over the A12 Bionic chip found in its predecessor, and Apple's claiming it gives the iPad 9 20% faster performance in CPU, GPU and Neural Engine activities. However, we can't verify those claims until we get one in for testing.

We have tested the iPad Air 4, however, and we can say definitively that its A14 Bionic chip gives it enough power to speed through most day-to-day tasks. The iPad Air 4 earned a 4,262 on the Geekbench 5 performance benchmark, easily beating the 2,685 earned by the iPad 2020 with its A12 Bionic chip.

While we can safely assume the iPad 9 will offer better performance than its predecessor thanks to the A13 Bionic, which also powers the iPhone 11 lineup, it probably won't outclass the iPad Air 4 and its zippy A14 Bionic chip.

If there's one big new notable addition to the iPad 9 (2021) which helps it stand above the iPad Air 4, it's the front-facing camera. 

Gone is the outdated 1.2MP selfie camera of the iPad 8, replaced by a new 12MP Ultra Wide front-facing camera with a remarkable 122-degree field of view. The new iPad 9's upgraded selfie camera also supports Apple's novel Center Stage feature, which debuted in the iPad Pro (2021). Center Stage uses AI to automatically move and focus the camera on speakers during video calls, and it's a neat feature to have if you plan to use your new tablet for a lot of Zoom calls. On the back of the new iPad you'll find a less impressive 8MP Wide camera, which is still good in a pinch if you want to use your tablet as an impromptu point-and-shoot.

By comparison, the iPad Air 4 has a 12MP Wide camera on the rear and a 7MP camera facing front. The rear camera has more features and better panorama capabilities than the rear-facing camera on the iPad 9 (2021), and it can shoot 4K video while the iPad 9 cannot. However, the iPad Air 4's selfie camera isn't as good as the one found on the new iPad 9, and it doesn't support Center Stage.

When it comes to taking selfies and conducting video calls, the new iPad 9 is clearly better equipped than the older iPad Air 4. However, if you plan to use your new iPad's cameras to primarily to shoot photos and videos, you're probably better off with the iPad Air 4.

The iPad 9 and iPad Air 4 are both rated for up to 10 hours of web surfing on Wi-Fi, and up to 9 hours if you're on cellular. 

This is pretty standard for Apple, and while we can't say for sure which tablet offers better battery life until we get a new iPad 9 in for testing, we can say that iPads are one of the rare devices which actually seem to meet or exceed the manufacturer's battery life claims under simulated real-world conditions.

Notably, when we set the iPad Air 4 up to continuously browse the web via Wi-Fi with its display set to 150 nits of brightness, the tablet lasted 10 hours and 29 minutes before powering off, beating Apple's advertised 10-hour battery life. We expect to see similar performance out of the iPad 9, but we'll have to wait until we test one for ourselves.

If you care about accessorizing your new iPad with a stylus or keyboard, you'll have more and better options with an iPad Air 4.

The iPad Air 4's Smart Connector (three small dots on the back of the tablet) and magnets allow allows you to hook it up to the excellent $299 Magic Keyboard or the less expensive $179 Smart Keyboard Folio. The iPad Air 4 also supports the $129 2nd generation Apple Pencil, which is a great stylus that magnetically attaches to the edge of the iPad Air 4 for easy charging and pairing.

The new iPad 9, by contrast, doesn't support many of Apple's best accessories. It can't work with a Magic Keyboard or the latest Apple Pencil, but it can be connected to a $159 Smart Keyboard if you need to do a little typing on your tablet. 

The iPad 9 also supports the $99 1st gen Apple Pencil, which charges via the Lightning port, as you uncap the pen's bottom and plug it into the iPad.

Now that we've taken a deeper look at these two tablets, it's clear that despite being roughly a year older, the iPad Air 4 offers a number of benefits the iPad 9 does not. 

The iPad Air 4 is a smidge smaller and lighter than the new iPad 9, with a slightly better screen and a more powerful chip under the hood. It also has a better rear-facing camera capable of capturing 4K video, which the iPad 9's cameras can't match. And with support for the latest Magic Keyboard and Apple Pencil, the iPad Air 4 offers better accessorizing options than the iPad 9.

However, we have to keep in mind that the iPad 9 is nearly as good as the iPad Air 4 yet costs roughly half as much, making it a great choice for iPad shoppers on a budget. And the new iPad 9 even excels in a few specific situations, most notably if you care about using wired headphones or expect to spend a lot of time on video calls and can take advantage of the iPad 9's much-improved 12MP Ultra Wide front-facing camera with Center Stage support.

Stay tuned for our full Apple iPad 9 (2021) review, which will give us a clearer picture of how well it performs and how long it lasts on a full battery.

The Hindu BusinessLine 17 September, 2021 - 01:20pm

Apple just announced an array of new products ahead of the holiday season, including its highly anticipated iPhone 13, new models of the iPad and iPad Mini and the latest generation of the Apple Watch, Apple Watch Series 7. Though the iPhone 13 models become available for pre-order on Sept. 17 and don’t start shipping until Sept. 24, Apple and multiple other brands have already launched accessories to accompany the new iPhone line — which includes the iPhone 13, iPhone Mini, iPhone 13 Pro and Pro Max — following the September 2021 event.

Stylish and customizable iPhone 13 cases make up the bulk of accessories for now. Casetify has already launched a lineup of iPhone 13 cases for its Impact Series and Re/CASETiFY collection, which is made from upcycled plastic through the brand’s recycling program. Other major brands like Case-Mate, Speck and Smartish similarly unveiled their own lines of iPhone 13 cases amidst the announcement. Brands are also trickling in releases of everything from leather holsters and screen protectors to battery packs and wireless charging stands.

To help personalize your iPhone 13 ahead of Apple’s slew of shipments, we’ve compiled some iPhone 13 accessories you can buy now.

During the September keynote stream, Apple announced new color options for the iPhone, including Pink and Blue for the iPhone 13 and Mini and Sierra Blue for the Pro and Pro Max models. If you plan on buying one of the new colors, this clear case can help show it off without sacrificing protection. The case features a scratch-resistant coating and built-in magnets to easily attach it to your phone while also allowing you to snap on your MagSafe charger without having to take off the case. Apple also offers a silicone case and a leather case for the iPhone 13, both of which are compatible with MagSafe and come in an array of colors for all iPhone 13 models.

Apple Watch Series 7 event highlights (supercut)

PhoneArena 17 September, 2021 - 01:20pm

Please keep in mind that prices do often change without notice and those prices only head in one direction, folks. Also be mindful that many restaurants temporarily close during this slowest of slow times of the year, again, without always offering much, or any, notice. So, yeah, call ahead before visiting any of these places, and, you know, take it easy if tax brings the price to, say, 10 bucks and change. 

Now featuring an even larger “Freaki-Tiki” area with a stage for live music in addition to the smoke-free dining room and inside bar, Clancy’s serves the kind of two-fisted burgers that should satisfy even the largest of booze-fueled appetites (they’re also great for sharing). Nicely seasoned and hand-formed, these big Angus burgers ($8.50) are grilled to order and include lettuce, tomato, mayo, onion and pickle slices with choice of side (get the onion rings for the extra 75 cents!). There are also numerous cheese and topping choices, as well as a blackening option, all priced between $.50 and $1.50. 

Owned and operated on Anna Maria Island by the Geyer family since 1971, Duffy’s lives up to its slogan of serving a “world famous burger and coldest beer in town” with a deliciously seasoned, diner-style cheeseburger served “all the way” with lettuce, tomato, onion and a dollop of mayo ($7; cash only). As a longtime fan of Duffy’s, I’ve also enjoyed the Brie & Caramelized Onion, Tex Burger, Bacon Cheeseburger, and the must-try Fresh Jalapeno & Havarti Cheeseburger. No fries are served at Duffy’s but I highly recommend the homemade chili and the navy bean soup.

A Sarasota institution dating back to 1957, The Hob Nob serves a classic diner-style burger that’s thin and salty with plenty of juice bursting out from under a blanket of American cheese, even when adorned with mayo, mustard, iceberg lettuce, a thick tomato slice, raw white onions and pickles. The $9.50 cheeseburger basket comes with a small side of coleslaw and comforting crinkle fries.

Every Sarasotan owes it to themselves to at least once experience the Old Florida joy of visiting City Island for a New Pass Burger and a cold one while seated on the docks of New Pass Grill and Bait Shop. After changing ownership last year, the diner-style patty remains a tasty treat tucked inside the same remarkably hearty and flavorful bun. The burger comes with American cheese and/or bacon, with a choice of toppings: lettuce, tomato, onions, pickles, mustard, mayo, and ketchup ($7.99, add fries for two bucks).

One of Bradenton’s oldest eateries, Shake Pit opened in 1959 and remains one of the most popular spots in the Friendly City, largely thanks to its cherished, diner-style cheeseburgers, which are still a bargain for six bucks (cash only). Order ’em with “everything,” which means the juicy patty is served on a toasted white bun with iceberg lettuce, tomato, onion, pickles, mayo, ketchup and mustard.

If you’re seeking a “cheeseburger in paradise” experience that’s totally Old Florida and just a stone’s throw from one of Anna Maria Island’s gorgeous shorelines, Skinny’s is your place: a funky ol’ structure from the 1950s located right across from Manatee Public Beach. The beloved Skinny Cheeseburger is a fresh, diner-style hamburger on a toasted white bun with American cheese, lettuce, tomato, onion and pickles – “just say ‘mayo’ or ‘no mayo’” ($7). Another fun option is the bacon cheeseburger ($8.65), with the three strips strategically placed under the slice of American. And, really, no trip to Skinny’s is complete without a frosty mug or two of beer and a side of fries ($3.27). Cash only.

How to fix Warzone & Modern Warfare Status Goldflake error

Ars Technica 17 September, 2021 - 05:13am

Modern Warfare and Warzone players have been dealing with the Status Goldflake issue for a while, here is our guide on how to fix it.

It’s almost impossible for a game to steer clear of bugs and potential banana skins, particularly when dealing with complex factors such as internet connection and crossplay.

As a result, various error issues can arise and have done in Modern Warfare and Warzone with error 5476, Diver Error 6, and unknown function Fatal Error being just a few examples.

Now, it’s time to try and help players who regularly deal with the “Status Goldflake error” that can disrupt sessions of Modern Warfare and Warzone.

There isn’t a complex set of bullet points to follow or a strict guideline you must adhere to in order to fix the Call of Duty Status Goldflake error message, thankfully.

Here’s our official way to solve the Status Goldflake error problem:

If for some reason this doesn’t work, then we’d suggest you do a hard reset of your system e.g if you’re on console, then unplug the console’s mains, or hold down the power button for a few seconds until it completely switches off, then turn it back on again.

The Status Goldflake error is quite simply an error message that occurs if the user puts their system into some kind of power-saving state, such as the PlayStation’s Rest Mode, and tries to go back onto the game.

The major sticking point with the error message is that there’s no permanent solution for it. Unfortunately, it will keep coming back every so often, and if it does, you just need to repeat the steps that we advised above.

Hopefully, our guide has helped with the Status Goldflake error code, and you can check out other cool stuff at Charlie INTEL such as the latest Call of Duty: Vanguard news and guides!

Cross-platform play has become a staple of the Call of Duty franchise, so here is everything you need to know about it in Modern Warfare.

Modern Warfare can be a ton of fun to play with friends. You and your buddies can either team up to take down opponents together or become rivals who battle each other for supremacy.

Since the game is available on various consoles, sometimes you’ll want to play with friends on a different platform.

This guide will cover everything you need to know about the Modern Warfare cross-platform feature.

Yes, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare comes with cross-platform play so that you can play with your friends on different platforms, whether you’re on Xbox, PlayStation, or PC.

This works similar to the cross-platform feature in Warzone. When you’re in the social menu, you’ll be able to see players on the same platform as you displayed at the top-right hand corner of the lobby screen.

If you want to find someone on a different system, select the “add friends” option. This will allow you to search other players by their PSN ID, Xbox Live Gamertag, BattleTag, or Activision ID and take full advantage of Modern Warfare cross-platform.

You can also disable crossplay if you wish to play with friends on the same platform, but this will lead to longer waiting times in the lobby, so we don’t recommend turning off the cross-platform feature.

Cross-platform has been one of the most popular features in the Call of Duty franchise, and titles like Black Ops Cold War also have it.

We expect this feature to be a consistent part of the franchise from now on, with Call of Duty: Vanguard being the next game in the fan-favorite series to utilize the ability for players to play with each other no matter if it is PC, Xbox, or PlayStation.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare was a huge success, not only because of the Multiplayer, but also because of its great Campaign, and here is its length.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is a great game, not only because it birthed the extremely popular Battle Royale game Warzone but also for its realistic, gritty Campaign.

Call of Duty fans continue to enjoy Modern Warfare in 2021, despite it being released in 2019.

The developers have continued to update and support the game a tad, especially in the Multiplayer mode, but for those looking to get into the Campaign, it is as great as it was when it was first released.

The Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Campaign is set in the modern-day and follows a British SAS and American CIA Officer as they team up with rebels from the fictional country of Urzikstan to take down Russian forces who have invaded the country.

The campaign is gritty and quite shocking in parts, depicting a modern-day conflict that really hits home.

The game was critically acclaimed when it was released, presenting a gritty, heavily detailed, and well-executed story, fitting for Modern Warfare games’ history in the past.

Despite being critically acclaimed, the game is fairly short, with a completion time of around 6 hours, making the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Campaign length one of the shortest in the franchise.

The Modern warfare Campaign length is determined by a total of fourteen missions that all deliver plenty of adrenaline-fueled action to players.

Depending on how quickly players get through these missions, you can expect around 4-6 hours of playtime when it comes to the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Campaign length.

However, if you’re a completionist and want to obtain all the collectibles and trophies the game has to offer, the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Campaign length could be much longer.

That’s all on how long it takes to complete Modern Warfare’s Campaign. For more, check out our article on the game’s rumored sequel set for 2022.

After an initial NVIDIA leak, VGC has said that the next CoD title will be Modern Warfare 2 and have confirmed initial campaign details.

Individuals on Reddit and Medium blog noticed a back-end server opening into NVIDIA’s GeForce technology site that allowed users to see hundreds of games that are tested out on their servers.

The list included many already announced and revealed games, but also included a variety of unannounced games. Many of the unannounced games were listed as just the internal developer name rather than an official name.

The full list from the NVIDIA leak is available here. NVIDIA confirmed in a follow-up statement that the leaked games were real but stated some were not official game names.

One of the games on the NVIDIA list is listed as “Project Cortez.” This project is listed as an Activision Blizzard published game with the developer: Infinity Ward.

Project Cortez is most likely the codename for the spiritual successor to 2019’s hugely successful Call of Duty: Modern Warfare from Infinity Ward.

Since the NVIDIA leak has happened, new details on the potential story plot for Call of Duty 2022 have been shared by VGC.

VGC sources claim that “Modern Warfare’s sequel will include a campaign involving US special forces fighting a covert war against Columbian drug cartels.”

The information on the 2022 game being a sequel to Modern Warfare 2019 is also backed up by Tom Henderson, who has shared some accurate Call of Duty leaks in the past.

This information also lines up with what Charlie INTEL has heard about the 2022 game.

The “Cortez” code name has not been used for previous Call of Duty games. Warzone’s code name was Magma, as evident by file names on the Call of Duty site, and Black Ops Cold War’s was Zeus.

Infinity Ward, to no surprise, is most likely the developer of Call of Duty 2022.

Activision has not commented on Infinity Ward’s next project and won’t until mid-2022, at the earliest. We’ll keep you updated with any further developments on the potential sequel.

How to fix Warzone & Modern Warfare Status Goldflake error

The Verge 17 September, 2021 - 05:13am

Modern Warfare and Warzone players have been dealing with the Status Goldflake issue for a while, here is our guide on how to fix it.

It’s almost impossible for a game to steer clear of bugs and potential banana skins, particularly when dealing with complex factors such as internet connection and crossplay.

As a result, various error issues can arise and have done in Modern Warfare and Warzone with error 5476, Diver Error 6, and unknown function Fatal Error being just a few examples.

Now, it’s time to try and help players who regularly deal with the “Status Goldflake error” that can disrupt sessions of Modern Warfare and Warzone.

There isn’t a complex set of bullet points to follow or a strict guideline you must adhere to in order to fix the Call of Duty Status Goldflake error message, thankfully.

Here’s our official way to solve the Status Goldflake error problem:

If for some reason this doesn’t work, then we’d suggest you do a hard reset of your system e.g if you’re on console, then unplug the console’s mains, or hold down the power button for a few seconds until it completely switches off, then turn it back on again.

The Status Goldflake error is quite simply an error message that occurs if the user puts their system into some kind of power-saving state, such as the PlayStation’s Rest Mode, and tries to go back onto the game.

The major sticking point with the error message is that there’s no permanent solution for it. Unfortunately, it will keep coming back every so often, and if it does, you just need to repeat the steps that we advised above.

Hopefully, our guide has helped with the Status Goldflake error code, and you can check out other cool stuff at Charlie INTEL such as the latest Call of Duty: Vanguard news and guides!

Cross-platform play has become a staple of the Call of Duty franchise, so here is everything you need to know about it in Modern Warfare.

Modern Warfare can be a ton of fun to play with friends. You and your buddies can either team up to take down opponents together or become rivals who battle each other for supremacy.

Since the game is available on various consoles, sometimes you’ll want to play with friends on a different platform.

This guide will cover everything you need to know about the Modern Warfare cross-platform feature.

Yes, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare comes with cross-platform play so that you can play with your friends on different platforms, whether you’re on Xbox, PlayStation, or PC.

This works similar to the cross-platform feature in Warzone. When you’re in the social menu, you’ll be able to see players on the same platform as you displayed at the top-right hand corner of the lobby screen.

If you want to find someone on a different system, select the “add friends” option. This will allow you to search other players by their PSN ID, Xbox Live Gamertag, BattleTag, or Activision ID and take full advantage of Modern Warfare cross-platform.

You can also disable crossplay if you wish to play with friends on the same platform, but this will lead to longer waiting times in the lobby, so we don’t recommend turning off the cross-platform feature.

Cross-platform has been one of the most popular features in the Call of Duty franchise, and titles like Black Ops Cold War also have it.

We expect this feature to be a consistent part of the franchise from now on, with Call of Duty: Vanguard being the next game in the fan-favorite series to utilize the ability for players to play with each other no matter if it is PC, Xbox, or PlayStation.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare was a huge success, not only because of the Multiplayer, but also because of its great Campaign, and here is its length.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is a great game, not only because it birthed the extremely popular Battle Royale game Warzone but also for its realistic, gritty Campaign.

Call of Duty fans continue to enjoy Modern Warfare in 2021, despite it being released in 2019.

The developers have continued to update and support the game a tad, especially in the Multiplayer mode, but for those looking to get into the Campaign, it is as great as it was when it was first released.

The Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Campaign is set in the modern-day and follows a British SAS and American CIA Officer as they team up with rebels from the fictional country of Urzikstan to take down Russian forces who have invaded the country.

The campaign is gritty and quite shocking in parts, depicting a modern-day conflict that really hits home.

The game was critically acclaimed when it was released, presenting a gritty, heavily detailed, and well-executed story, fitting for Modern Warfare games’ history in the past.

Despite being critically acclaimed, the game is fairly short, with a completion time of around 6 hours, making the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Campaign length one of the shortest in the franchise.

The Modern warfare Campaign length is determined by a total of fourteen missions that all deliver plenty of adrenaline-fueled action to players.

Depending on how quickly players get through these missions, you can expect around 4-6 hours of playtime when it comes to the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Campaign length.

However, if you’re a completionist and want to obtain all the collectibles and trophies the game has to offer, the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Campaign length could be much longer.

That’s all on how long it takes to complete Modern Warfare’s Campaign. For more, check out our article on the game’s rumored sequel set for 2022.

After an initial NVIDIA leak, VGC has said that the next CoD title will be Modern Warfare 2 and have confirmed initial campaign details.

Individuals on Reddit and Medium blog noticed a back-end server opening into NVIDIA’s GeForce technology site that allowed users to see hundreds of games that are tested out on their servers.

The list included many already announced and revealed games, but also included a variety of unannounced games. Many of the unannounced games were listed as just the internal developer name rather than an official name.

The full list from the NVIDIA leak is available here. NVIDIA confirmed in a follow-up statement that the leaked games were real but stated some were not official game names.

One of the games on the NVIDIA list is listed as “Project Cortez.” This project is listed as an Activision Blizzard published game with the developer: Infinity Ward.

Project Cortez is most likely the codename for the spiritual successor to 2019’s hugely successful Call of Duty: Modern Warfare from Infinity Ward.

Since the NVIDIA leak has happened, new details on the potential story plot for Call of Duty 2022 have been shared by VGC.

VGC sources claim that “Modern Warfare’s sequel will include a campaign involving US special forces fighting a covert war against Columbian drug cartels.”

The information on the 2022 game being a sequel to Modern Warfare 2019 is also backed up by Tom Henderson, who has shared some accurate Call of Duty leaks in the past.

This information also lines up with what Charlie INTEL has heard about the 2022 game.

The “Cortez” code name has not been used for previous Call of Duty games. Warzone’s code name was Magma, as evident by file names on the Call of Duty site, and Black Ops Cold War’s was Zeus.

Infinity Ward, to no surprise, is most likely the developer of Call of Duty 2022.

Activision has not commented on Infinity Ward’s next project and won’t until mid-2022, at the earliest. We’ll keep you updated with any further developments on the potential sequel.
