Activision revealed 2019's entry as Call of Duty: Modern Warfare with a trailer giving a sense of the game. Its release date is set for October 25 on PS4, Xbox One, and PC, and it features some significant and welcome changes on the multiplayer front that should make it a lot more welcoming for players, along with what Infinity Ward calls a more realistic style of single-player campaign.
Notably, this is not Modern Warfare 4, which would have been the next numbered entry in the series. The game's subtitle is simply Modern Warfare, and it serves as a reboot of sorts of 2007's Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare. It's decidedly not a remake, with developer Infinity Ward--the studio responsible for all of the Modern Warfare games--describing it instead as a reimagining. The new game is not set in the same universe as the existing trilogy--Infinity Ward says that world had left little room to raise the stakes further--but it does feature some familiar faces. Captain Price is back, for example, but with a new voice actor.
As was previously confirmed, this year's Call of Duty will include a single-player campaign. It seems as though the story will concern Russian interactions with the Middle East, while enemies will include an ultranationalist group helping to execute terrorist attacks in major cities such as London.
Modern Warfare will of course include a multiplayer mode, but Infinity Ward hasn't yet revealed much more detail on that portion of the game. It did say, however, that your progression in the campaign will carry over to multiplayer, meaning you'll always be working towards unlocking new killstreaks, perks, and weapons.
"Play is the highest form of research, a chance to discover who we are, or maybe who we want to become." - Albert Einstein Those who play games know why they do. To discover worlds, to challenge our fingers, and our minds. To connect with friends, or maybe just to escape. Games are about possibilities, the paths we take as well as the ones we don't.
