Activision‘s forthcoming Call of Duty 2019 title will be named Call of Duty: Modern Warfare according to sources, signaling a reboot of the franchise. The new title is speculated to be a “soft reboot”, with many speculating it to be remaking the story of Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, the first title in the series.
Kotaku‘s Jason Schreier leaked the information and it has yet to be confirmed by Activision or developer Infinity Ward. However, former Infinity Ward developer Robert Bowling has been teasing fans on Twitter of the rebooted gaming arriving soon. According to Kotaku, “Activision has been showing the game to press and “influencers” (YouTubers and streamers) for a week or two now, so a leak like this was inevitable.”
It also suggests an official announcement will be made “likely next week.”
I can confirm this is true, and that it's hilarious. The first one was "Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare" so obviously the fourth one is "Call of Duty: Modern Warfare." Video games are absurd https://t.co/Ghb1m2srC4
