Activision is going all out on this year’s edition of Call of Duty as they have confirmed that Call of Duty: Modern Warfare post launch support will be the largest in Activision’s history along with promises of more surprises to come after launch.
During the Q2 2019 earnings call, Activision’s own President of Publishing, Robert Kostich and COO Cody Johnson took to addressing some of the concerns that this year’s Call of Duty had in terms of content, since the company announced at its reveal that it wouldn’t have a traditional Season Pass tied to it. Cody stated during the presentation that fans could expect surprises after the launch of Modern Warfare, along with what they are claiming as their biggest post content support yet for a title.
…as we announced last week we think Modern Warfare delivers the industry’s ultimate multiplayer playground. The game will not only feature the multiplayer game play that our fans know and love, but also note that the game supports 2v2 fightv and an epic large scale experience that will support more than 100 players. The game also delivers the phenomenal built from the ground up PC experience and for the first time in Call of Duty history the game will support cross platform play.
Last week, multiplayer revealed between 36 of the world’s most prolific streamers play against one another under one roof, held the number one spot on the industry’s top gaming platform and the response from fans has been the strongest we’ve seen in years and fans will get the first taste of the action in our multiplayer open beta in September. We have a number of surprises in store after that including the largest post-launch content pipeline in franchise history.
Robert Kostich eventually touched upon this again when asked during the Q&A segment about the the vision for Call of Duty’s future, beginning with Modern Warfare.
We’re going to have cross platform play as Coddy mentioned and we’re also not having a season pass. Now this is important and we’re doing this because we want to build one massive community where everyone can come together and have fun each and every day and to support that community as we go forward.
We’re investing significant resources post launch content events and new ways to play that we think fans are going to really love. So what I’d say is, we’re really looking forward to the launch of Modern Warfare, it is a great game. And we believe it’s the beginning of an incredible journey for our community. Thanks.
They didn’t clarify as to what kind of surprises we may see, though we did publish an article recently covering a large rumor that suggest a free battle royale mode is coming to Call of Duty: Modern Warfare in 2020. That is however just speculation, though we can expect a lot of the free content to come in the form of map packs and Spec Ops missions.
In other news Call of Duty news, we’ve recently posted what some of the animated emblems will be like in the game, which you can see right here.
