Tech News:

Infinity Ward is returning to Earth.



By Matt Purslow

This year’s Call of Duty game is allegedly a soft reboot of the Modern Warfare series, and will be titled Call of Duty: Modern Warfare.

The news comes from Twitter user and YouTuber LongSensation, who simply tweeted the name along with the addition of “I’m not joking.”

I can confirm this is true, and that it’s hilarious. The first one was “Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare” so obviously the fourth one is “Call of Duty: Modern Warfare.” Video games are absurd https://t.co/Ghb1m2srC4

Since then, Kotaku’s Jason Schreier has tweeted confirming the name, and Eurogamer has run a report claiming it has its own sources that validate the name.

It’s important to note that Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is not the same as the original 2007 Modern Warfare, which in full is titled Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare. This will, however, be the fourth Modern Warfare game, just in case you wanted to get yourself confused.

“Soft reboot”

A follow-up tweet from Schreier claims that the game is a “Soft reboot” of the series. We will, presumably, learn what this means in the near future, as Activision have said that the new Call of Duty will be revealed before the end of June.

Schreier has also posted an article on Kotaku elaborating on his tweet, claiming that Kotaku’s sources have described Infinity Ward’s new game as taking inspiration from the controversial No Russian mission in Modern Warfare 2, where players can gun down civilians in an airport if they wish to do so.

This isn’t the first time IGN has heard the name Modern Warfare in relation to Call of Duty 2019; last month we learned that a collection of athletes had played the new game as part of a Call of Duty Partner scheme, and a video taken at the event featured people talking about ‘Modern Warfare 4’.
