Why 2019’s Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is A Hard Reboot

- Advertisement -

Modern Warfare. Anyone familiar with first-person shooters will recognize that phrase immediately. The original game, Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare came out in 2007 to critical acclaim and spawned a new franchise which followed the adventures of Captain Price & Soap. It is this idea of the franchise being so memorable that Infinity War kept in mind while making the latest installment in the series, simply called Call of Duty: Modern Warfare.

With a reveal trailer which, as it should, reveals a lot of details previously kept under wraps, it’s been confirmed that the 2019 installment would, in fact, be a reboot. Not a sequel. Not a remaster. A hard reboot.

With last year’s Black Ops, it certainly seems like Activision wants the franchise to go back to its roots. Or at least, make it look like it. Gone are the jetpacks and space missions. With Modern Warfare, we are back to using good old night vision and intense set pieces. Infinity Ward wants to use the Modern Warframe brand to its full potential, bringing (most of) the same old characters & themes that we never thought we’d see again after CoD went full on ballistic with their annual release cycle.

Comparing it to MW2’s infamous “No Russian” mission, the developer wants players to be fully immersed in a story which plays very much in the moral grey area. As Captain Price notes, “The rules have changed. War isn’t black or white. It’s grey. There’s a fine line between right and wrong and somewhere, in the shadows, they send us in.” The setting too has been revamped, moving more towards a combat platform that is more reminiscent of modern times.

“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… 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.” – Infinity Ward

Further details have been revealed about the game:

  • The game uses a brand new engine. Apart from that, the game will be enhanced for the Pro consoles, with support for higher resolutions and potentially higher frame rate options
  • Modern Warfare won’t have a season pass, with some post-launch content being free.
  • The game will support cross-play between Xbox One, PS4, and PC.
  • It will include co-op, however, the majority of the campaign will be single-player focused, much like the original trilogy. Team Deathmatch is back.
