Last year’s Call of Duty, which was a soft reboot of the Modern Warfare saga, brought in familiar faces to the franchise, and of course, the familiar “boots on ground” multiplayer fans have been clamoring for since jetpacks outstayed their welcome.
Well, it seems we’re in for something more and something new — at least according to Activision. In last night’s quarterly earnings call, Activision Chief Operating Officer and President Coddy Johnson teased that a “new experience” that’s set within the Modern Warfare universe is incoming.

If I had to hazard a guess, I’d say this “new experience” Johnson is referring to is the long rumored battle royale mode that’s supposed to launch early this year. Heck, we even have an outline of its map already leaked in one of the patches.
If it’s not battle royale, then I don’t have a clue what it could be. That said, let’s hope the player base embraces it since we can all use “new experiences” when it comes to Call of Duty.
In other Call of Duty news, Activision has mentioned that this year’s Call of Duty game is already being playtested.
