After weeks of rumours and speculation, 2019's Call of Duty game has finally broken cover and as suspected, it's a return to Infinity Ward's popular subseries but rather than MW4, it's simply entitled Call of Duty: Modern Warfare.

During a worldwide reveal event, centered around a trailer which we've posted below, publisher Activsion confirmed that Modern Warfare will see the return of a full single player campaign to the Call of Duty series after its absence in Black Ops 4, and described it as seeing players take on the role of a 'varied cast of international special forces and freedom fighters in gripping and heart-pounding missions through iconic European cities and volatile expanses of the Middle East.'

Intriguingly, Modern Warfare will also see the debut of an all new engine for the Call of Duty series, and perhaps most excitingly, the release reveals that the team plan for the game to feature cross-platform support in multiplayer between PC and consoles. On top of that, Call of Duty Modern Warfare is eschewing the traditional Season Pass, 'so that we can deliver more free maps and content as well as post-launch events to all players.'

Multiplayer and co-op modes are also promised, although the reveal was light on details for those aspects for the time being aside from being mentioned as part of the 'immersive narrative experience' - implying a story that weaves players through all three. Expect even more information in the coming weeks.


Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is set to release on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC through Blizzard Battle.net on October 25.
