The Call of Duty franchise has seen a yearly release every year for a long time now, and this year is no different. Rumors had been circling for the past few months about Infinity Ward developing a potential sequel to 2011’s Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3. This was due to the last 2 games they had developed not being received as well by fans as they’d have hoped. Call of Duty: Ghosts & Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare were not the most popular CoD games ever, with Infinite Warfare becoming the most disliked gaming video on YouTube.
Activision officially announced yesterday evening that we would indeed be getting a new Modern Warfare game, however it is not a fourth installment to the popular series. It is more of a reboot for the franchise. This is a much needed change of pace for Call of Duty, we seem to have had a few too many futuristic CoD games lately (besides WW2).
Complete with a brand new engine, a campaign mode, traditional multiplayer and a Co-Op experience, this Modern Warfare looks to take the franchise back to the heights it was at years ago.
One feature that has been confirmed is Cross-play between consoles & PC. This is a first for any Call of Duty game.
“With the launch of Modern Warfare, the team is taking steps to unite the community. First, the team plans for Modern Warfare to be played together across PC and console through cross-play support.
Fingers crossed for a MW2 remaster…
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare will be released October 25, 2019 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
