At this point and after numerous leaks and external checks, surely not one doubts that the new installment of the Call of Duty series will be a Modern Warfare. Since the last episode with that name was Modern Warfare 3 (2011) it was assumed that this year would be Modern Warfare 4. But today you have come to a small turn of events, and that is according to numerous sources, among which is included journalist Jason Schreier – the new CoD is called Call of Duty: Modern Warfare. No ” 4 ” At the end.
Of course it does not seem to be a very important change, but many fans are already finding the name grace. Reviewing the history of the franchise for the most clueless, the MW series began linked to the trunk deliveries with Call of Duty 4 Modern Warfare. That same game received a revision in 2017, called Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered (without 4). That is, the first game to be called Modern Warfare had to 4 in its name, the fourth of them not, and the remastering of Modern Warfare came to stores two years before the first game called Modern Warfare was published.
We will not blame you if you have to read it several times to find the logic. For now, Activision has not formally announced any games, but it has said that Infinity Ward is behind the release that will be published in 2019 and that we will see it in action at E3 or even earlier.
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
