While Activision is mysteriously still silent about this year’s Call of Duty, persistent rumors have pointed it out to be the next chapter in the Modern Warfare saga. Just last month, American athletes were given access to test the game out in a private event, though there’s no official announcement just yet.
In yesterday’s earnings call, Activision still didn’t refer to this year’s Call of Duty using its official title, rather using terms like “Call of Duty 2019,” or “new Call of Duty” game when addressing it to financial analysts. In talking about the game, Activision exec Collister Johnson didn’t give any specific details, but mentioned that Call of Duty 2019 will have “game-changing experiences” to its fans, which is a big claim to say.
We also recognize that we need to do even more to maintain the breadth of our Call of Duty player base beyond the launch quarters and the Call of Duty team is hard at work on that for this fall’s big content release excitement for which is incredibly high around the organization.
We expect that both the launch and post-launch content will bring game-changing experiences to our fans.
What could this mean? We already know that Call of Duty 2019 will have a single-player campaign and a co-op mode. Could this mean that there’s something more to it than that? Or is Johnson referring to the multiplayer and other modes as being something new that will be “game-changing?” Your guess is as good as mine at this point/
With E3 set to take place next month, this year’s Call of Duty should be revealed very, very soon.
