RUMOR: Call of Duty: 'Modern Warfare' is the CoD 2019 title

CoD Modern Warfare Reveal

Activision usually reveals its Call of Duty games in May, and the current rumor states this will happen on May 30.

Many of you may be quick to point out that we have already had a CoD with a similar title "Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare" but this would be different and not include the 4, before or after MW. Someone said what sounded an very bad lot like "Modern Warfare 4" in a video clip of an April preview event, and Robert "fourzerotwo" Bowling, formerly the high-profile community manager and creative strategist at Infinity Ward, posted some rather on-the-nose tweets earlier this month. The title for the unannounced (but heavily teased) next game in the annual shooter series was seemingly leaked by gaming YouTuber LongSensation.

It appears the strong rumors of the Modern Warfare 4 title isn't true.

In another tweet, Schreier also claims that Activision is using the upcoming Modern Warfare game as a "soft reboot" of the franchise. Therefore, a May 24 reveal date seemed more than plausible. After months of reports suggesting it would be, it had been assumed by many that it would be.

Jason Schreier, a news editor at Kotaku, has confirmed that the upcoming installment of Call of Duty, long rumoured to be Modern Warfare 4, is in fact called "Call of Duty: Modern Warfare". No number, no extra subtitle, just Modern Warfare. It'll be interesting to see how Infinity Ward and Activision handle the confusing title from a marketing standpoint, as they'll have to try to ensure that casual fans don't accidentally bamboozle themselves.
