Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is an extremely popular franchise, and this year Infinity Ward might be developing Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 4. Multiple sources have said that the title won't be Call of Duty: Ghosts 2, so that only leaves a few options. According to a report by Dexerto, unless there's a new franchise in the works, it'll most likely be Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 4.

Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 lacked a single-player mode, but it looks like this year's Call of Duty experience may contain one. According to another report by Game Rant, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 4 won't contain a new story, but Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Remastered. Now this is where the rumor gets even stranger. The opening Russia mission where you commit mass murder will be removed, and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 Remastered may be added to the game at a later date. As with any such "leak," take it with a grain of salt until Activision reveals the game. We'll keep you posted as soon as we know more.

However, that's not all. If you go to the Infinity Ward jobs portal, the team is actively looking for a software engineer to "drive the vision of what a true next-generation console can achieve." To entice potential applicants, the post adds, "come work with the game industry's brightest on an exciting, unannounced next-generation title." It's unclear if this is a new franchise or a next-generation Call of Duty game.

Many other developers, including Rockstar Games and Turn 10 Studios, are working on next-generation titles which focus on even better facial animations and detailed worlds. The next-generation Xbox is expected to launch in 2020 as per other rumors, so this is definitely an interesting, transitory time for the gaming industry.
