Activision is now preparing for Call of Duty 2019 reveal as social media accounts for Call of Duty are “going dark” now. This sudden change aligns with the recent reports of Call of Duty being revealed on May 30.
The official Call of Duty Twitter account was recently updated with a new Call of Duty logo and bio which reads “going dark”. Further, there’s now a blank header on Call of Duty’s official Twitter account.
That’s not all as Call of Duty Instagram and Facebook accounts have also been updated. Every region based account of Call of Duty on Instagram provides a different variation of “going dark” as follows.
- Silence on the radio.
- Silence on the air.
- We start.
- Lights out.
- Radio silence.
- Prepare for the infiltration operation.
That all makes us believe that Call of Duty reveal is imminent. A reveal on May 30 would make sense since Activision announces every Call of Duty title before E3.
Rumor has it that Infinity Ward’s next title is called Call of Duty: Modern Warfare. This does surprise us all as everyone was expecting Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 4 as the title of COD: 2019.
Additionally, Kotaku’s Jason Schreier says that the upcoming game is a “soft reboot’ of Modern Warfare series. We can expect to learn about “soft reboot” during COD: 2019 reveal.
Schreier also says that the upcoming Modern Warfare game will “be heavy on troubling, realistic emotional moments, very much inspired by the controversial No Russian campaign in Modern Warfare 2 that allowed the player to gun down civilians.”
According to the latest finding, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare has been added to Twitch directory. This pretty much confirms the name of next Call of Duty game. That’s because not anyone can add an upcoming game title to Twitch directory.
Of course, the provided information should be taken with a pinch of salt until Activision and IW confirm anything.
If COD: Reveal is not on May 30, it’s safe to say that it will be sometime in June followed by gameplay reveal at E3 2019. We can do nothing but wait for now.
Call of Duty 2019 is in development for Sony’s PlayStation 4, Microsoft’s Xbox One and PC.
