The time is finally here and it is time to reveal what this year's Call Of Duty will be, and it will be…Modern Warfare. Yes, it looks like all of the rumors are true and Infinity Ward will be back bringing us a reboot to the Modern Warfare line of the franchise. It messes up the numbering, sure, but at least we are set to get back on track with a single-player campaign and some over-the-top visuals as you can see in the trailer that released with this announcement. All of which brings some interesting and new things for Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare that you may not have expected for its October 25th release date.
In addition to bringing back the campaign mode for Call Of Duty, it looks like the multiplayer is getting a bit of a change too. All in the way of no longer having a Season Pass for the content and also making sure that all players can kill each other no matter their selected platform. Yes, it looks like this Call Of Duty will also have cross-play between the PC, PS4, and Xbox One when it launches. Yet another huge deviation but something that fans of the franchise have been dying for over the years. On top of the removal for timed platform exclusives. Although, that could still be a thing as there has not been any mention of all of that as of yet.
