Infinity Ward Studio Narrative Director Taylor Kurosaki has dropped a major hint regarding the possible release of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare’s campaign trailer.

CoD fans have been eagerly awaiting any new information about the upcoming first-person shooter, with PS4 players getting their first opportunity to test out the 2v2 Gunfight mode in an exclusive alpha back in August.

With two multiplayer betas scheduled in September, there are plenty of opportunities to try out the game’s most popular mode, but information on the Modern Warfare campaign has remained scarce, although that could all be about to change.

Infinity WardInformation on Modern Warfare’s campaign has been scarce.

In an exchange on Twitter, Kurosaki hinted that the trailer would be appearing online in the very near future, sending fans abuzz with excitement at the possibility of seeing what they can expect from the game’s campaign.

“Story trailer?” asked Twitter use 2015CMass97, with the Studio Narrative Director responding: “Ok, sounds good.”

Another user took things a step further, asking if there was any chance it would be released tonight, with Kurosaki teasing the possibility by writing: “Hold on, let me check…”

While the trailer for the campaign has yet to appear, Kurosaki’s tease indicates that it isn’t far away, although he didn’t go as far as to confirm whether we will see it at some point today, or give an official release date for it. 

Little is currently known about the Modern Warfare campaign, although Infinity Ward have been forced to address claims about censorship in the game’s story mode, denying they were altering the dialogue before the title launches. 

With legendary characters like Captain Price confirmed to play roles in the mode, Call of Duty fans are chomping at the bit to see what their favorite soldiers have been doing since the conclusion of Modern Warfare 3, and with developers hinting that the trailer is on its way, there shouldn’t be too long to wait before we get our first look at the next chapter in the legendary franchise’s storyline.

The $250K Twitch Rivals Doritos Bowl Warzone event hit a major snag in the road on January 21, as alleged cheaters were disqualified from the competition ahead of the closing round.

One of the biggest Warzone events to date set the scene for one of the biggest cheating scandals to date. Amidst the five-rounds of private lobby action, a number of Warzone’s veteran competitors began to accuse players of cheating in the tournament.

The Trio of METZY_B, kyrptic_j0ker, & Unifyz were disqualified from the competition in light of these allegations. This ban came through before players dropped into the fifth and final match of the day.

“Based on the evidence submitted from various sources in and out of the tournament, [Twitch has] determined that [their] gameplay was unnatural beyond a reasonable doubt,” event host Caleb ‘WavePunk’ Simmons explained.

As a result of their disqualification, Twitch opted to move forward with the event. Rather than restarting or replaying on a different date, the fifth map continued with one less team.

Accusations made against Metzy_B

Accusations started piling up after the fourth round of action. Players noticed some extremely sharp aim coming from METZY_B in particular. 

Resident Warzone investigator Tommey was soon on the case, as he began to dissect the footage. It was peculiar auto-aim that caught his eye, as the suspected cheater immediately “locked on” to an opposing player in the clip.

Given the $250K up for grabs, there was plenty at stake. $45,000 was on the line for the winning team, while even a last place finish would have awarded the alleged cheaters $1,200. However, METZY_B and his team were “ineligible for prizing,” Twitch soon confirmed. 

Naturally, it didn’t take long for the controversy to spill across social media, with many of Warzone’s biggest names repeating their gripes with the lack of an effective anti-cheat system.

“Unfortunately without anti-cheat, authentic Warzone tournaments just aren’t possible anymore,” NICKMERCS said. “There’s too much cheese & way too many rats.”

Despite this, it later became clear that, perhaps, the players in the tournament had jumped the gun early with their accusations…

METZY_B clears his name

After being kicked from the tournament, METZY_B joined Tommey’s Discord call in an attempt to clear his name, showing his PC, the programs he’s been using and more.

While METZY wasn’t reinstated to the tournament, some critics have deleted their tweets and Tommey, after investigating the situation, conceded that he got it wrong this time and there “wasn’t enough to go as far as it did.”

He later clarified that he played no part in reporting METZY to the admins of the tournament or forcing his removal, but the player is “more than welcome to take his earnings” from the event.

Game five continued with one less team in the lobby. Champions were crowned and the $250K prize pool was split accordingly. Be sure to check out our event hub for a full recap of the troubled Twitch Rivals Warzone tournament.
