We won’t have to wait long for Activision to reveal the next Call of Duty. During its post-financial results earnings call, the publisher confirmed that the shooter would be revealed in Q2 2019. That basically means an announcement will be made some time between today and June 30th.
The smart money is on a pre-E3 2019 reveal, followed by a gameplay showcase at the expo, as has been the case with previous titles. Not much is officially known about the next Call of Duty, save for the fact that Infinity Ward is working on it. We do know that some professional football players got their hands on it recently.
It should be interesting to see how Infinity Ward’s next Call of Duty will exist next to Call of Duty: Black Ops 4. Treyarch’s shooter still has some legs with Blackout, not to mention its seasonal Operations (the latest one introduced a new Specialist). Then again, with rumours stating that Call of Duty 2019 won’t feature a battle royale mode, perhaps the two could co-exist together. Stay tuned for more details in the meantime.
