The next Call of Duty could be Modern Warfare 4

  1. The next game in the Call of Duty franchise is rumored to be none other than Modern Warfare 4.

    Activision recently hosted a private event for select football players in Nashville ahead of the NFL Draft taking place in the Music City later this week. Twitter and Instagram postings from the event, complete with the hashtag #CallOfDutyPartner, suggest we’re looking at an organized marketing effort but what event coordinators may not have banked on was video of the proceedings hitting the web.

    As CharlieIntel notes, Riley Ridley and Jacques Patrick posted an Instagram story from the event. The video seems innocent enough as no gameplay footage is shown although one Reddit user slowed down the footage and you can apparently hear the word “killstreaks” and the phrase “Modern Warfare 4” uttered.

    EuroGamer editor Tom Phillips also hints at Modern Warfare 4 in his recent article on the matter.

    Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 arrived in November 2011 from Infinity Ward and Sledgehammer Games. It was an instant success, selling over 6.5 million copies in the first 24 hours en route to becoming the biggest entertainment launch ever (at the time).

    All we know for certain about the next Call of Duty is that it’ll feature the return of a solo campaign.

    The most recent entry in the franchise, Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, was the best-selling game of 2018, beating out other fan favorites like Red Dead Redemption 2, Super Mario Party and Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey for the honor.

    Best selling, yea it not hard to sell when you pay for the likes of Shroud n all his minions to play your game. Course the game fell from grace as usual. Hardly anyone even bothers talking about it. Just like what's happening with Apex. All these games come n go. Not easy keeping a player base.

    Maybe the next CoD will be better and not look like a PS2 game.

    Still got to admit at the time when MW1 and MW2 came it out it was pretty awesome. Way before streamers and youtubers made any big impact on pre-orders and whatnot.

    I think I heard Killstreaks clearly enough, but definitely not Modern Warfare 4. I think it's one of those "you hear what you want to hear" things. But maybe I'm wrong.

    I dont think any of that is clear. I dont hear anything that clearly says modern warfare 4 or killstreaks. The audio needs to be cleaned up to really hear if those words are being said.

    Just reminiscing when they revolutionized the FPS genre. Sad it is now just a cut, slight modify, paste.

    Good. Because we're all sick of the boring World War II scenarios. Please stick to the modern age and never again release another boring and annoying WW-II title.

    I have zero interest in anything Activision with their horrible montezation model. I haven't enjoyed a COD game since Black Ops 2. I'm sorry, but I'm not paying real money for a reticle on a weapon. COD has gone down the drain in recent years.
