Call of Duty Modern Warfare Announced

Over a decade since the original Modern Warfare was released, Activision is launching an all new, dark reimagining of the beloved title.

Set to launch on October 25, 2019, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is a brand new game inspired by 2007’s Modern Warfare.  It will contain a single-player story, action-packed multiplayer mode, and new co-operative modes as well. David Stohl, the Co-Studio Head of Infinity Ward stressed that the new game is a reimagined modernization of the original Modern Warfare.

“We are creating an emotionally charged experience that’s inspired by the headlines in the world today, where the rules are grey and battle lines are blurred. Players will join 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. It’s intense, it’s exciting, and we can’t wait for our fans to play this October.”

Modern Warfare is built off of a brand new engine, that promises to bring an immersive and photo-realistic experience to the world of Call of Duty. The new engine also includes a new hybrid tile-based streaming system, new PBR decal rendering system, world volumetric lighting, 4K HDR, DirectX Raytracing (PC) and more as well as a new GPU geometry pipeline. According to the game’s Creative Director, Patrick Kelly, Modern Warfare is not only an attempt to make a quality shooter, but also bring the Call of Duty community closer.

“Every design decision has been made with our players in mind. With the launch of Modern Warfare, we’re taking steps to unite the community. First, we plan for Modern Warfare to be played together across PC and console through cross-play support. Second, we’re eliminating the traditional season pass, so that we can deliver more free maps and content as well as post-launch events to all players. This is just the beginning – there’s much more to come.”
