Activision recently revealed Call of Duty Modern Warfare. It’s the fourth Modern Warfare game, though obviously shares the same title as the very first, well almost. Given this peculiar name, many are wondering (and rightly so), whether Call of Duty Modern Warfare might be a reboot of the 2007 game. Well, we’ll answer that and more in this Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2019 guide. We’ll take a look at where it sits in the Modern Warfare slate of games, and what, if anything, it borrows from Call of Duty 4.
Is Call of Duty Modern Warfare a Remake?
The first question on everyone’s minds upon learning that the new Call of Duty is called Call of Duty Modern Warfare was undoubtedly whether or not it is a remake. There’s also reason to believe that it may be a reboot entirely, or even just a sequel with a silly name. Well, turns out it’s actually none of those things. Activision is describing Call of Duty Modern Warfare as a ‘re-imagining’ of the 2007 game. The term ‘soft-reboot’ has also been kicked around in interviews.
So Does Call of Duty Modern Warfare Follow the Series So Far?
From what we’ve seen so far of Call of Duty Modern Warfare, it borrows certain elements from the 2007 Call of Duty 4 game. Characters like Cpt. Price are featured, though it’s unclear whether or not he will follow a different path this time around. Infinity Ward seems to be taking the spirit of the original game, and apply it to more modern design sentiments. Call of Duty Modern Warfare will feature more difficult themes, like ‘No Russian’ did all those years ago.
