It's been rumoured for quite a while that this year's iteration of the Call of Duty series will be a new Modern Warfare title, and various reports today are suggesting that it will be called Call of Duty: Modern Warfare.
Publisher Activision has already proved that numbering games can be difficult, using IIII as the roman numerals for last year's Call of Duty: Black Ops 4's marketing instead of IV, so there is the possibility that they've given up on using the number four completely.
The rumour was originally posted by Twitter user @LongSensationYT and was given some more weight when Kotaku's News Editor, Jason Schreier, confirmed that it is indeed true.
With Infinity Ward taking their turn at developing this year's Call of Duty release, a new game in the Modern Warfare fan favourite sub-series would make the most sense, especially considering that the studio's last two outings, Call of Duty: Ghosts (the one with the dog) and Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare (the one everyone downvoted on YouTube), are the lowest rated Call of Duty games on Metacritic.
Not to be mistaken for 2007's Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare or 2017's Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered, 2019's Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is set to be a whole new release, and you can expect to hear more about it within the next month, possibly alongside Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Campaign Remastered.
