There have been a couple of rumours about a possible Modern Warfare 4 release this year. However, there was no confirmation for these speculations. Until now. A former Call of Duty dev suggested that the next Call of Duty title might be in fact a Modern Warfare 4.
One (overly excited) fan tweeted “I’ll shit myself if it’s modern warfare”. Not only that he received an answer from Robert Bowling, but the response tweet can be considered a confirmation of the rumour: “You better buy some brown pants”.
Robert Bowling is the former Infinity Ward Creative Strategist and Community Manager so we have plenty of reasons to believe him. More than that, the last Modern Warfare title was released 8 years ago, which is a long time. The franchise was quite popular and Infinity Ward has plenty of reasons to bring it back to life.
There are other things that fuel this rumours. A couple of American football players posted a video of themselves playing what seems to be this year’s Call of Duty at a private preview event. The video can be watched here and if you listen closely it appears that the players say “Modern Warfare 4” at some point.
Eurogamer also had an article about the speculations and the first words for the first four paragraphs spelled Modern Warfare 4. We do not know yet whether Eurogamer knows something, or it is simply making fan of the speculating fans.
Finally, to list the last clue, back in February Activision-Blizzard mentioned that Call of Duty 2019 is “rooted in some of the franchise’s most important history”, and it will come with a single player campaign. These are both clues which seem to suggest that Modern Warfare 4 is on its way.
