The next Call of Duty title is reportedly NOT Ghosts 2

While we’re just a couple of days into 2019 and months away from finding out more about the next Call of Duty title, that hasn’t stopped fans from trying to figure out what the next game actually is.

It’s common knowledge by this point that Call of Duty games rotate between developers each year, which means that it’s Infinity Ward’s turn to make the next game following Sledgehammer Games’ WWII in 2017 and Treyarch’s Black Ops 4 in 2018.

With that in mind, the latest rumors swirling around the internet have centered on Tweets put out by Infinity Ward’s Communications Manager, Ashton Williams.

Over the last few weeks, she has been posting ghost related GIFs on her personal Twitter, leading many to assume that this meant the next Call of Duty game would be a sequel to 2013’s Ghosts.

Despite the parallels that people have drawn between Williams’ Tweets and the next Call of Duty game, though, they appear to be completely unfounded.

Kotaku’s Jason Schreier, who has made a name for himself in the industry by breaking news on upcoming titles, has shut down those rumors definitively. 

Responding to a thread on ResetEra, Schreier says quite plainly “It ain’t Ghosts 2!”

This appears to line up with what has been previously reported by charlieINTEL, as the 2019 Call of Duty title looks to be a new entry to the Modern Warfare series.

Given that definitive information on upcoming Call of Duty titles usually doesn’t come out until around March or April, it looks like there’s still a couple months of speculation left before we find out anything concrete.

OpTic Envoy’s AK74u Black Ops Cold War loadout ahead of CDL launch

The competitive Call of Duty season is almost upon us, with the CDL launching on January 23, and Envoy’s AK74u could prove one of the most important in getting OpTic Chicago some all-important championship wins.

The AK74u is the go-to SMG for all competitive Black Ops Cold War players. While the MP5 was the main one when the game first dropped, a subsequent nerf saw the 74u take top spot and maintain it ever since.

While Envoy’s original loadout back in November was impressive, this one is a complete change-up, and seems to be the meta build for most top pros who run it.

Taking to Nuketown ‘84 for a 1v1 against teammate FormaL, both were using the AK74u — and it absolutely shreds.

The AK74u is the best-in-class SMG.

As mentioned, this looks to be the meta build for most pros, but Envoy is by far one of the most impressive SMG players in the Call of Duty League, so it definitely looks great in his hands.

Here’s the attachments Envoy uses on the gun:

  • Muzzle: Muzzle Brake 5.45
  • Barrel: 9.3” Extended
  • Underbarrel: Spetsnaz Speedgrip
  • Stock: KGB Skeletal Stock
  • Handle: GRU Elastic Wrap

Attachments at 8:40

If you’re looking to maximize your abilities with an SMG in hand, Envoy is one of the best people to look at, and with the launch of League Play in BOCW seemingly imminent, now’s the perfect time to get used to this build.

This may look slightly different from what you see in public matches, with certain attachments banned or not viable in a competitive space, so it’s well worth familiarizing yourself with.

Whether or not this remains the meta throughout the year isn’t yet known; we expect a number of weapon balancing changes throughout the year, but how this affects the 74u isn’t clear.
