The information about Modern Warfare 2's CODBall game mode comes from leaked images that have now been taken down, as reported by Tom Henderson via Insider Gaming, so take information with a grain of salt.

At the time of writing, there's no official CODBall release date for Modern Warfare 2. However, it is expected that the mode and map could release on 21st November 2022 when Neymar Jr enters the game as an Operator.

Modern Warfare 2 CODBall Gameplay & Map

According to the report, the leaked images provided a glimpse at a colorful football pitch inside a stadium. Players drive around knocking about a giant ball, and a victory scream pops up when a player scores.

This leads us to believe that the game mode will be similar to that of Rocket League, and a round (such as Search and Destroy) ending every time a player scores. At the time of writing, it is unclear how many players can participate in a CODBall match at once. It is expected that this will be a 2v2 or 3v3 game mode in Modern Warfare 2.

Is CODBall a Limited-Time Event?

Yes, the CODBall game mode is a limited-time event via the Modern Warfare FC. According to the Insider Gaming report, the map and stadium were explicitly developed for the event and won't feature in classic multiplayer.

So there you have everything we know about Modern Warfare 2's CODBall game mode so far. We will endeavor to update this article once more information becomes available.
