Next Call of Duty isn't called MW4, just Modern Warfare

This year's Call of Duty game won't actually be called Modern Warfare 4, but instead just...Modern Warfare.

Multiple sources say Call of Duty 2019 will be called Modern Warfare, seeing Activision pull a similar naming scheme as EA with Battlefield 1 in 2016. Whether or not the game will be a reboot for the series remains unknown. Infinity Ward has been teasing the project for a while now and key Modern Warfare series vets have returned to make the new FPS.

Activision confirmed this year's Modern Warfare will have full singleplayer campaign with optional co-op. There's a possibility that Modern Warfare 2019 will also feature a free-to-play online mode for maximum engagement and monetization potential.

The publisher says the game will be revealed this quarter and sources pinpoint a May 30 announcement for Modern Warfare.

Activision has talked up the game in its past reports, but doesn't expect it to do nearly as well as Black Ops 4 insofar as sales and revenues. Total yearly earnings forecasts are down across the board and don't reflect the launch of a mega-blockbuster Call of Duty game.
