It appears as though Infinity Ward may be gearing up to reveal its Call of Duty: Modern Warfare (2019) sequel.
Over the weekend, the social media accounts for the studio ‘went dark’ – that is, replacing all their profile & banner images. The new images appeared to be just black, but as reported by CharlieINTEL, brightening up the images revealed some extra detail. Fans believe that the brightened up images show classic series main character, Ghost.
Interestingly enough, Eurogamer note that CoD Twitter leaker RalphsValve mentioned earlier this month that April 30 will mark something significant. However, mysteriously they’ve also mentioned that a full reveal won’t take place until May. They updated this weekend, to claim from their sources that play tests could be happening as soon as this week.
So far, we know that this year’s Call of Duty will be a sequel to the 2019 entry, itself a reboot of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare. Infinity Ward, who developed both versions, will be taking the helm for the campaign. If all this is true, it would be an earlier reveal than usual, given Call of Duty‘s previous reveals have taken place around mid-Summer or E3 time. Perhaps the reported poor sales performance of Call of Duty: Vanguard has caused Activision to bring forward its usual plans?
Said poor sales performance is also allegedly the reason we might not get a full Call of Duty release in 2023. However, Activision are yet to confirm if those reports are accurate. As for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, we’ll keep you up to date with any developments we spot. For now, keep a close eye on Infinity Ward’s Twitter.
