Call of Duty’s most celebrated series is making a highly anticipated return with Call of Duty: Modern Warfare which launches on the 25th October with a reimagined experience from the ground up. Published by Activision and developed by Infinity Ward, this all-new title will engulf players in a modern-day conflict, and features a unified narrative experience and progression in a single-player story, action packed multiplayer, and new co-op gameplay.
Dave Stohl, co-Studio Head of Infinity Ward said, “This is an all-new Modern Warfare reimagined in every way. We are creating an emotionally charged experience that’s inspired by the headlines in the world today, where the rules are grey and battle lines are blurred. Players will join a varied cast of international special forces and freedom fighters in gripping and heart-pounding missions through iconic European cities and volatile expanses of the Middle East. It’s intense, it’s exciting, and we can’t wait for our fans to play this October.”
Patrick Kelly, Creative Director and co-Studio Head of Infinity War said, “Every design decision has been made with our players in mind. With the launch of Modern Warfare, we’re taking steps to unite the community. First, we plan for Modern Warfare to be played together across PC and console through cross-play support. Second, we’re eliminating the traditional season pass, so that we can deliver more free maps and content as well as post-launch events to all players. This is just the beginning – there’s much more to come.”
