We’re right on the cusp of E3 2019, which means we’re about to get a tonne of new game reveals and announcements, even from those who might not be attending this year’s conference.
One of the most-hyped games we’re waiting to hear more about is the 2019 Call of Duty.
The next addition to the CoD franchise is heavily rumoured to be the elusive and much-wanted Modern Warfare 4, but we’re yet to hear this from the CoD Gods themselves.
What we do know about the upcoming title is that it’s going to feature a campaign mode (hooray!), and although details are thin on the ground right now, it seems that CoD 2019 has had a whole load of help from the gods of the narrative-driven game, Naughty Dog.
Revealed by an Infinite Warfare developer [via ComicBook] during a livestream, it’s been confirmed that ex-Naughty Dog developers are “helping a lot with story stuff” for the new title.
It’s great news for CoD fans. Remember the ah-ma-zing campaign story of Infinite Warfare? Yeah, Naughty Dog devs helped out on that too.
Last year’s COD game, Black Ops 4, didn’t have a traditional single-player campaign, so this is some exciting news for fans of the classic games in the series
Time to get hyped!
Activision has confirmed that it’ll be revealing the game before the end of its current fiscal quarter – meaning it’s coming before June 30.
Keeping pretty tight-lipped on the game during its latest earnings call, Activision did let it slip that it’s going to be “game changing,” though what that means is up for debate.
Rob Kostich, president of Activision, said earlier this year: “[COD 2019 will have] an entirely new campaign, a huge and expansive multiplayer world, and some fun co-op gameplay.”
CFO of the company, Dennis Durkin, also added that the game will add more to the COD series, but is also “rooted in some of the franchise’s most important history.”
Thankfully, we’ll know more about the new title in just a few weeks’ time!
