Following yesterday’s big rumor that Infinity Ward’s big Call of Duty: Modern Warfare announcement tomorrow is for a Modern Warfare alpha featuring the new Gunfight game mode, the studio has now seemingly stoked the flames more today, as it unveiled two new Gunfight maps via AR (Augmented Reality) which were then released to the Modern Warfare invite cards sent to influencers.
Call of Duty YouTubers like Xclusive Ace, JGOD, and eColiEspresso showcased this new update on their invites today.

Looks like our #ModernWarfare reveal invite cards updated again with some AR Intel of *new* and already known 2v2 maps ?

As you can see, the Modern Warfare new Gunfight maps are called “Speedball” and “Docks,” which are joining the maps we already know (“Pine,” and “King”). Again, this is NOT confirmation that a Modern Warfare alpha is indeed being announced tomorrow, but you have to admit that this does add further fuel to the fire already circulating online.
The wait won’t be long now. Stay tuned for the official gamescom Opening Night show where Modern Warfare and a bunch of other games and announcements will be showcased at 2 p.m. ET/11 a.m PT. Stay tuned here on MP1st as we’ll get a livestream up and of course, offer the best place for all the new announcements in one place.
