The anticipation for the Call of Duty 2019 game is reaching fever-pitch, especially since a new leak has supposedly announced the reveal date.
Reveal date leaked
Murmurings of an imminent announcement took the CoD community by storm last night (May 23) with rumors of a same day reveal. After these proved to be false, many then thought May 24 would be the reveal day.
Apparently both of these dates are incorrect as Gaming INTEL has now leaked that May 30 will be the reveal date of Call of Duty 2019. Their anonymous source appears to have correctly predicted that the game wouldn't be called Modern Warfare 4 as universally thought.
The logic behind the claimed May 24 reveal date by many in the CoD community came as a result of looking at the reveals of past Modern Warfare games.
Call of Duty: MW2 was revealed on May 22, 2009 and MW3 on May 23, 2011. Therefore, a May 24 reveal date seemed more than plausible.
Reports surfaced earlier today (May 24) that the next Call of Duty game would not be titled Modern Warfare 4. After months of reports suggesting it would be, it had been assumed by many that it would be.
Instead, and somewhat confusingly to some, the game will simply be called Call of Duty: Modern Warfare. Most CoD fans will question this saying that there has already been a Call of Duty game called this.
However, the first title for the first Modern Warfare game was actually Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare. As a result the removal of the "4" in the latest title makes it officially a different name.
Whether players continue to refer to the game as Modern Warfare 4 or MW4 for the sake of clarity, and perhaps habit, remains to be seen.
