Call of Duty have confirmed that the reveal for the brand new 2019 CoD game, rumored to be a new Modern Warfare title, will take place on May 30.
The game is widely expected to be called Modern Warfare, as opposed to the previously rumored Modern Warfare 4, and will apparently be a 'soft reboot' of the beloved franchise.
As previously rumored, the Call of Duty reveal will take place on May 30 at 6pm BST / 10am PDT / 1pm EDT. While the video doesn't confirm the time directly, the blurry tease of May 30, 10am PDT almost certainly alludes to the official reveal time.
The official reveal for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare will likely be available on Call of Duty's official YouTube channel. It has not been confirmed if the reveal will also be streamed on Twitch, although previous reveals have been.
The video was scheduled to go live Call of Duty's YouTube, but images from the thumbnail leaked and revealed the first look at Modern Warfare's cover art, so it has since been taken down.
In anticipation of the reveal event on May 30, Activision uploaded the content to YouTube a day early, which gave some users access to glimpses of the upcoming stream.
Although Activision were quick to take down the content, they were not quick enough to prevent key game art, a sneak peek clip, and the release date of the game to be leaked.
Speculation is rampant as to what the new Call of Duty game could include. Excitement ahead of new Call of Duty games is always intense but with a supposed return to the Modern Warfare series, this reveal has an extra edge to it.
There has been a lot of discussion about the 2019 CoD single-player mode with the strongest rumors indicating a campaign inspired by Modern Warfare 2's infamous "No Russian" mission. Consequently, the reveal could be centred around this.
What modes the new Call of Duty includes could also be revealed. Rumors for this range from a four player co-op campaign, a return to the classic Spec Ops mode to MW2 and MW3 references.
Naturally a game titled Modern Warfare would demand some sort of connotation to its predecessors. The hype for a remaster of both Modern Warfare 2 and 3 is perhaps as big as any game that has previously got the remastered treatment.
With the game being described as a reboot by leaks, the addition of either MW2 or MW3 multiplayer mode being remastered is far from certain. Instead, the core Modern Warfare multiplayer mode could utilize maps from both these games.
A mixture of MW2 and MW3 maps appearing in game has been touted. Whether these are direct remakes or something different such as the maps being combined remains to be seen.
