Is Call of Duty Modern Warfare Coming to Switch?

So far we’ve not had any confirmation that Call of Duty Modern Warfare will come to Switch. There is some info suggesting that it might though, in the form of some careful datamining. As reported by Badfive, there is some Switch-specific code hidden on the Call of Duty website. The code is ‘nxdock’, which is surely a reference to the Switch. We’ll have to wait and see whether or not this rumor comes to fruition, we’ll be sure to update if it does.

Call of Duty Modern Warfare DLC

Activision has revealed that Call of Duty Modern Warfare will not have a season pass. Instead, there will be free content updates post-launch. Free maps, and events are all mentioned as planned.

What Team is Working on Call of Duty Modern Warfare?

As you may already know, Infinity Ward will be taking the helm on Call of Duty Modern Warfare. It won’t be alone however, as support teams Raven Software and Beenox are also helping.
