Call of Duty 2019 Is Called Modern Warfare. Really!

Call of Duty 2019

In an effort to make us give up on Call of Duty 2019 before it even hits the shelves, it seems the shooter franchise is trying to confuse the heck out of the internet. Sit down. The new Call of Duty is Call of Duty: Modern Warfare.

The ingenious new title leaked on Twitter not long ago courtesy of handle @LongSensationYT.

This was followed by responses from Jason Schrier of Kotaku, who confirmed this looks to be correct

Now while this is not concrete confirmation out of Activision, but based on previous leaks out of Activision’s shooter, this wouldn’t be particularly surprising.

The new, or old, name for Call of Duty 2019 should not be confused with the very first outing of the Modern Warfare title, Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare. That ended up on PC and consoles back in 2007. In fact, we don’t actually have anything more than a name right now. We don’t yet know whether this particular title is an Xbox style naming switch or if it indicates something more in line with the 2016 release of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered.

Call of Duty 2019 is being pieced together by the developers at Infinity Ward and the potential move away from the Black Ops series is not all that surprising. Despite racking up more Twitch time than any previous Call of Duty and doing very decent sales numbers, last year’s Call of Duty installment caused Activision shares to stumble.

Is the new Call of Duty 2019 title a wistful look back? We will have to wait and find out.
