After all the talk and rumors, Activision & Infinity Ward have revealed Call of Duty: Modern Warfare which would be the fourth game in the series. The game comes with a brand new story so it’s not a prequel or a sequel and it’ll have a fresh campaign. The game is also aimed to launch on October 25th, 2019 on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, & PC. For the first time a Call of Duty game will support cross-play among the three major platforms & there will not be a season pass. The PC version of the game will only be available on Battle.net.
At the end of the trailer it has been confirmed that Modern Warfare’s DLC will be available on PlayStation 4 first which means Sony has the marketing rights yet again. The cross-play feature will work for co-op campaign and competitive multiplayer from what we understand.

In just a few weeks we will learn more about the game and its multiplayer most likely since there will be a Call of Duty panel at the E3 Coliseum and CWL Anaheim is right after which is one of the biggest Call of Duty esport events. It would make sense to show more of the games competitive nature at the Call of Duty World League Event in front of a passionate fan base.
One of the bigger discussions about this game going forward is that will there be another Battle Royale mode like we’ve seen with Blackout on Black Ops 4? Keep in mind that Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 did not have a campaign mode and made it all multiplayer. It’ll be interesting to see what happens.
Stay tuned for more updates regarding Call of Duty: Modern Warfare.
