The next Call of Duty title might be in line for a reveal very soon.
Today, a tweet went out that the next Call of Duty title – long rumoured to be Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 4 – is simply being called Call of Duty: Modern Warfare. Jason Schreier of Kotaku vouched for this and said that this is being considered a “soft reboot”. Now Eurogamer is joining the fray, confirming from its own sources that the name change is legit.
Perhaps more importantly, sources told the site that an official reveal was coming on May 30th. It further added that for all intents and purposes, this is a new game. Not a direct sequel to Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, or essentially the same game as Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare.
If an official trailer goes live next week, it would follow the pattern of Call of Duty reveals till now. Usually, Activision releases a trailer or hosts a special event hyping up the next game, with more information following shortly at E3. This year, Activision has confirmed that it won’t have a show floor booth. Infinity Ward will be present at the E3 Coliseum event, though, to talk about the next Call of Duty. Expect a proper information blow-out there, but in the meantime, stay tuned for more potential leaks.
