When Treyarch launched Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 it came with its own battle royale game mode called Blackout. While the game mode was popular for some time, it quickly died off and players went to other titles such as Fortnite and Apex Legends. Infinity Ward will be taking a different approach with Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, instead of going full battle royale they will be concentrating on what made Call of Duty, Call of Duty - the core multiplayer.

Joe Cecot, the multiplayer designer for Infinity Ward, told IGN that Infinity Ward are "big fans of battle royale. We're excited for large player counts and things like that, but right now we're really focused on core multiplayer." He continued and said "We really focused on Modern Warfare, authentic and gritty, realistic weapons and it's a different experience. It's really... just about pulling back to Modern Warfare and keeping that pure." Call of Duty: Modern Warfare will be launching for PS4, Xbox One and PC on October 25, 2019.

Jaks love for technology and more specifically PC gaming began at 10 years old, it was the day his dad showed him how to play Age of Empires on a old Compaq PC. Ever since that day, Jak fell in love with games and the progression of the technology industry in all its forms. Instead of the typical FPS PC gamer, Jak enjoys the likes of a solid MMO, RPG, or a single-player linear story. More importantly, though, he holds a very special spot in his heart for RTS games.
