One of the worst kept secrets in gaming the past month is now ‘official’ as Activision has revealed Infinity Ward’s newest CoD game, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and has given fans a release date: October 25th, 2019.

This ‘reimagining’ of the series aims to make gameplay slower, more tactical with an edgier take on the storyline all while running on a brand new engine to make the action look more realistic than ever.

Prepare to go dark, Modern Warfare is back! The most celebrated series in Call of Duty will make its highly-anticipated return when Call of Duty®: Modern Warfare® launches October 25th in a powerful experience reimagined from the ground-up. The all-new title, published by Activision and developed by Infinity Ward, engulfs players in a modern-day conflict, where split-second decisions could affect the global balance of power.

The new Modern Warfare features a unified narrative experience and progression across a heart racing, epic single-player story, an action-packed multiplayer playground, and new cooperative gameplay.

David Stohl, in-Studio Head of Infinity Ward also talked about the changes his team is making to the series.

This is an all-new Modern Warfare reimagined in every way. We are creating an emotionally charged experience that’s inspired by the headlines in the world today, where the rules are grey and battle lines are blurred. Players will join a varied cast of international special forces and freedom fighters in gripping and heart-pounding missions through iconic European cities and volatile expanses of the Middle East. It’s intense, it’s exciting, and we can’t wait for our fans to play this October.

Activision also confirmed that new content will come first to the PS4, 7 days before XB1 and PC.

Will you answer THE CALL on October 25th??
