it will actually be Modern Warfare 4. All early signs have pointed towards the next part of the iconic Infinity Ward series, which hasn’t had a release since 2011.

A ton of ‘leaks’ and rumors have surfaced in the meantime, yet, Activision has remained vague about what they will be publishing – only teasing a return to game’s roots and a “game-changing” experience. Yet, they’ve finally let slip just when we will be able to see what they have for us.

Infinity WardPlenty of ‘details’ have been ‘leaked’ about MW4 – but is it actually the game we’re getting?

When will Call of Duty 2019 be revealed?

During the company’s quarterly earnings call on May 2, Activision, again, walked back over old ground with their excitement about the next title and just how “game-changing” they believe that Infinity Ward’s new release will be.

However, there was also a somewhat firm confirmation of when we can expect to see an announcement about the next title. Activision revealed that the game will be revealed before the end of this financial quarter – which ends on June 30.

While there was no exact date announced, we know that we will be seeing the next installment of the iconic franchise sooner rather than later. Previous Infinity Ward releases have traditionally been announced towards the end of May, so while the long wait appears to be drawing to a close, there is still some time to go just yet.

Black Ops 4 will receive further content

While Activision was focused on reiterating some of the details they’ve already spoken about when it comes to the next game, they did also confirm that Black Ops 4 will not fall to the wayside anytime soon.

During the call, the publisher’s noted that Black Ops 4’s total hours played growing double digits year over year when compared to WWII and that new content, modes, and events will be released moving forward to “sustain reach and attract new users.”

It remains to be seen just what operations and further plans that Treyarch has up their sleeve.

Another Warzone streamer shows hacks live on Twitch stream

Like clockwork, another Call of Duty: Warzone streamer has exposed their in-game cheats while playing live on Twitch. And this time, the cheater did not take kindly to chat quickly trashing him.

Hackers have been the biggest issue in Warzone; with cross-play enabled between PC and console players for the first time, the CoD fanbase has been exposed to even greater levels of cheating than ever before.

Going by ‘festation’ on Twitch, yet another streamer has outed themselves as a cheater on the platform by displaying their hacks while broadcasting live. In this case, they were quickly called out on Twitter and in the chat, leading to deleted clips and a switch to Black Ops 4 gameplay.

With Twitch chat flaming him for being bad at Modern Warfare and Warzone even with hacks activated, festation proceeded to let them know that he is elite on Black Ops 4 and challenged them to 1v1 matches. He then switched over to the earlier CoD title, but not before his hacks were clipped and shipped across the internet.

As shown in the clip, downloaded before its inevitable deletion on Twitch, festation is rolling around Verdansk while knowing precisely where every single opponent is on the map. He can see players, color-coded based on their health, with a structural indication of their character model’s movement through walls.

Similarly, he also has indicators for guns, cash, and armor found throughout the map. Unfortunately for him, that sort of unfair game awareness doesn’t equate to the IQ that matters, as he is easily blown up by a Cluster Strike at one point.

This is likely why Twitch chat laid into him even more, as fans typically shame hackers for remaining inferior at the game even when gaining an unfair advantage. 

Part of the reason why he gained a decent amount of viewers on Twitch was likely because of getting exposed on Twitter. Concerned fans of the battle royale went so far as to reply to a random TimTheTatMan tweet to try and bring attention to the blatant hacking.

In response, new viewers could enjoy seeing the cheater switch over to BO4 and continue to struggle while throwing out challenges to his detractors in chat: “Get on Black Ops 4, watch me smack any of you on Hardpoint.”

This is far from the first time a streamer has been exposed for cheating. In the past, one accidentally displayed his hacks while another purposefully tried to show his off. As of yet, neither Infinity Ward nor Twitch appear to have banned festation, but repercussions seem likely following this exposure.
