Seems the rumor we picked up on yesterday was wrong after all. Call of Duty Modern Warfare will not be releasing on October 18th, but rather one week later on October 25th. This was confirmed alongside the official reveal trailer which you can find below!
The stakes have never been higher as players take on the role of lethal Tier One operators in a heart-racing saga that will affect the global balance of power. Call of Duty®: Modern Warfare® engulfs fans in an incredibly raw, gritty, provocative narrative that brings unrivaled intensity and shines a light on the changing nature of modern war.
Developed by the studio that started it all, Infinity Ward delivers an epic reimagining of the iconic Modern Warfare series from the ground up. In the visceral and dramatic single-player story campaign, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare pushes boundaries and breaks rules the way only Modern Warfare can. Players will engage in breathtaking covert operations alongside a diverse cast of international special forces throughout iconic European cities and volatile expanses of the Middle East.
And the story doesn’t end there. In Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, players will be thrust into an immersive narrative spanning the entire game. Players can experience the ultimate online playground with classic multiplayer or squad-up and play cooperatively in a collection of elite operations, accessible to all skill levels.
Some further details were announced regarding the title as well including:
- Cross-play support between PCs and consoles.
- Elimination of a season pass so all post-launch maps will be for all players.
- The game is built on an entirely new engine.

We informed our fans weeks ago that this iteration of Call of Duty would be campaign, MP, and Spec Ops but it’s great to finally see it in action. This looks like a proper reboot, shake up that in our opinion, Call of Duty needs. We’re excited!
