Forums - Gaming Discussion - Rumor: Call of Duty 2019 is Modern Warfare 4

Craig Fairbrass, the voice actor of Gaz in MW1, Ghost in MW2, and Walcroft in MW3, has seemingly leaked Modern Warfare 4 on his Twitter bio.

Considering the CoD cycle goes Sledgehammer > Treyarch > Infinity Ward and Treyarch is releasing Black Ops 4 in 2018, that would mean Infinity Ward is making Modern Warfare 4, same as every previous MW game. Infinity Ward has had a shaky history since losing studio heads Jason West and Vince Zampella and nearly half of the developers at the studio in 2010. Modern Warfare 3 was fairly well received (though generally considered to be worse than MW1 and MW2), while CoD Ghosts and CoD Infinite Warfare are probably the two worst received CoD games to date. Can Infinity Ward redeem themselves with a 4th Modern Warfare game in 2019? At the very least, it's bound to have a better reception than Infinite Warfare I think.

Just here to defend Infinite Warfare. I'd argue it has the best campaign in the series. Multiplayer is a mess, yes, and I suppose that's what most folks care about.

I agree with you there. I honestly enjoyed the singleplayer in all 3 Shadow Infinity Ward games (MW3, Ghosts, and IW), but IW campaign was exceptional, best CoD campaign since MW2 in 2009 imo. Unfortunately, Shadow Infinity Ward has only made 1 good CoD game from a MP standpoint, MW3, and Sledgehammer assisted with the MP on it before becoming a full fledged studio.



I'll believe it when I see it.

Maybe that CoD MW4 was actually counted for the CoD MW1 remake?

Apparently he only recently added the 4 to his twitter bio, or so that's what I'm hearing anyway. 

It does make sense. After 2 disappointing new IP releases from Infinity Ward in a row, I can see Activision wanting them to go back to their original cash cow franchise, MW.

Also, it's worth noting that Price's voice actor in 2014 said he heard MW4 was coming. Most likely got delayed in place of Infinite Warfare after he said that, but after Infinite Warfare flopped MW4 is the safest bet Activision can make for Infinity Ward's next game, the name alone will sell copies.



Modern Warfare IIII.



He has now removed it from his Twitter bio and tweeted this:

Question is, did he remove it because Activision told him to, or was it simply a mistake on his part?

Fair points.

Since I'm a single-player-first kind of guy, I actually prefer Infinity Ward, even though the studio has fallen out of favor with many fans. Likewise, I'm down on Treyarch (the fan favorite) because, in my mind, it hasn't made a great campaign since World at War.

Seems we are in agreement here. Treyarch is also my least favorite CoD studio, I also don't think they've made a good campaign since WaW.
