Project Cortez is featured in the datamined list of Nvidia’s GeForce Now games. The list states Infinity Ward, who developed Modern Warfare (2019), as the developer for Project Cortez.
VGC, citing sources familiar with publisher Activision’s plans, reports that Project Cortez will have a campaign where US special forces will be seen fighting a war against Colombian drug cartels. Moreover, Project Cortez and its narrative seem to refer to Colonel Felix Cortez, a character from the 1994 action movie Clear and Present Danger.
It’s been 3 years since we got Modern Warfare in 2019 and before that, it was COD: Infinity War in 2016. Project Cortez is going to be the next game in the subseries that is releasing in 2022 and we can expect to learn more about it soon.
