Call of Duty Next event – what games will be shown off?
Of course, Activision have been fairly vague about what to expect to get you all to tune in. They have given a few morsels of info to let us know though.
Of course, Modern Warfare 2 will be a big part of the show, with a full reveal of that game’s Multiplayer. That’ll include the debut of brand new maps and modes. There’ll also be gameplay from several prominent Call of Duty streamers, all playing in real time.
However, we’re also promised that there’ll be fresh info on “the next” Call of Duty Warzone, also known as Warzone 2. Will we get a look at it? Well, given it’s scheduled for release “not long after” Modern Warfare 2 we’d hope so. We’ll have to wait and see.
Finally, Activision has also promised a reveal of the just-announced Mobile version of Call of Duty: Warzone. It revealed a teaser and a name this past Thursday, telling us to expect the full reveal at the event.
