If we look at when the previous games have been revealed over the past 10 years it looks like we should be coming up quite soon on a full reveal for Modern Warfare 4.
Let’s take a look at those past announcements:
- Call of Duty Modern Warfare 3 Reveal Trailer – May 27th
- Call of Duty Black Ops 2 reveal trailer – May 1st
- Call of Duty Ghosts reveal trailer – May 21st
- Call of Duty Black Ops 3 reveal trailer – April 27th
- Call of Duty Infinite Warfare Teaser reveal – April 30th
- Call of Duty WW2 – Announced 21st April
- Call of Duty Black Ops 4 – Announced March 8, Reveal event May 17
To say that it the Call of Duty games have a familiar reveal timeframe based on all of that is understating things. It seems that the games are creatures of habits, or at least the teams behind them are.
It’s also worth noting that whilst Black Ops 4 was announced much sooner, it also released a whole month earlier than most other Call of Duty games.
Either way, it seems a safe bet to suggest we could see the next Call of Duty game revealed, announced, or at the very least, teased, at some point towards the end of April and early May.
As we mention though, all signs appear to be pointing us towards a new entry in the Modern Warfare series.
Whilst many of the Call of Duty games have a strong lineage, few are as impressive as the Modern Warfare part of the brand.
And its worth noting that during Activision’s last earnings call, an Activision Blizzard CFO said that the upcoming game is ‘rooted in franchise history.’
The focus on history in that quote is important as the last Modern Warfare game was back in 2011. Eight years is a long time in gaming terms and bringing it back again will no doubt cause a huge uproar.
Plus, Sony recently used PlayStation Plus to give away the remastered version of the original game and they have a particularly close relationship with the developers.
One way or another, we should have more concrete details in the next month or so. Although, based on a few rumours, we already have a few indications of where the game could be headed.
According to Gaming INTEL the latest in the Call of Duty mega-series won’t include the beloved Zombies mode.
A pretty big surprise given just how good the mode has become since its inception.
And it’s even more surprising when you consider that the Zombies mode has been in every Call of Duty game since 2014.
Supposedly this will apparently make way for something that is a bit like Modern Warfare’s 3 Survival mode.
It was effectively a horde mode where you and your friends fight off waves of the undead (the living) instead of the undead.
This mode was a hit in Modern Warfare 3 but in the wake of no single-player last year, it is odd to see another long-lived mode out of the running.
That’s not the only big change rumoured, as it’s also been suggested that Modern Warfare 4’s multiplayer portion will also be significantly changed, potentially dropping specialist characters.
Only time will tell, and thankfully, as we’ve already alluded to, we don’t think it will be that long before we find out.
