Watch the Call of Duty 2019 Reveal Live Right Here

CoD Modern Warfare Reveal

That's according to Infinity Ward, which said as much the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare press release today.

The game will feature cross-play between PS4, Xbox One and PC at launch, it's been announced, and will also be dropping the concept of a Season Pass for DLC, in favour of keeping the community united with free updates.

It helps establish a recent trend for back-to-basics naming conventions in long-running franchises after 2018's "God of War", the umpteenth entry to a series of the same name. It's been almost 12 years since 2007's Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare transformed the popular video game franchise and vaulted it to a whole other level, but the series has arguably never been able to regain that level of acclaim and replayability since.

"Call of Duty" seems to have hit a crossroads.

"The stakes have never been higher as players take on the role of lethal Tier One operators in a heart-racing saga that will affect the global balance of power". Locations range from "iconic" European cities and volatile expanses of the Middle East, with fan-favourite characters such as Captain Price set to return.

Just about every rumor and leak up until now has pointed to 2019's Call of Duty being some sort of Modern Warfare installment. Likewise, while I'm assuming Modern Warfare's newly revealed co-op missions will support online play, it's unclear if they'll support crossplay as well.

Sure thing! You can watch the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare announcement trailer above. Ray tracing will even be used for audio. On top of that, Activision says that the game will support cross-platform play. We'll have to wait and see how that effects performance once Modern Warfare launches, as traditionally DX12 engines have favored AMD hardware.

No, of course not! This would be a huge turnaround from the most recent Black Ops 4, which ditched a traditional campaign and added a battle royale mode, Blackout, to its multiplayer suite.
