Activision appears to be preparing to reveal the next Call of Duty, as it has changed its social media accounts to reflect the impending announcement. The franchise says it is “going dark” and has changed its logo icon on its official Twitter account.
That all seems to suggest an announcement is imminent, likely sometime before or during E3 2019. Activision usually announces its annual Call of Duty installments before E3. Though Activision doesn’t hold its own press conference for the event, a Call of Duty trailer is often featured at the press briefings for Microsoft, Sony, or both. This year Sony is bowing out of E3, but Microsoft could still show it off.
Rumor has it that the next Call of Duty will be a reboot of Modern Warfare, dropping the numbers and simply calling itself Call of Duty: Modern Warfare. This would be the fourth Modern Warfare game, following up on last year’s Black Ops 4.
Black Ops 4 dropped the longstanding tradition of story campaign modes in Call of Duty games, instead focusing on its competitive multiplayer, Zombies, and new Blackout modes. This year’s installment will bring back the campaign–which would make sense for rebooting a story-focused series like Modern Warfare–and we know that it’s already playable.
