Rumors have been flying about Call of Duty Modern Warfare title, but an Infinity Ward developer chose not to comment, responding instead with a cryptic message.
Call of Duty Black Ops 4 was the first CoD title to feature a battle royale mode, and now fans are wondering if the future installments will feature it too.
With Modern Warfare being developed by Infinity Ward instead of Treyarch, it isn't a given that a BR will show up, but that hasn't stopped the rumors from swirling.
What did the dev say?
The rumors first started with YouTuber 'TheGamingRevolution' saying that a mode was being worked on, claiming it was never originally planned but instead was being added as a last minute addition, according to his source.
Nothing has been confirmed as of yet, but now we have an actual response from Infinity Ward and it just might end up fueling the flames even more.
An Infinity Ward developer responded to a fan on Twitter who asked about the battle royale mode and the developer responded simply with a gif of Jim from The Office.
The fact that they are not giving a comment is just stoking the flames for the fans even more considering it's not an outright denial or confirming, leaving a lot of wiggle room for there to actually be a BR.

It wouldn't really be surprising if Modern Warfare has a battle royale mode as it's still a mega-popular genre.
With no hard confirmation either way, we have to take TheGamingRevolution's word with a grain of salt and wait for official word from Infinity Ward.
Modern Warfare releases for PS4, Xbox One and PC on October 25, 2019.
