What you need to know

  • Call of Duty: Modern Warfare appears to be this year's installment.
  • A trailer leaked on YouTube which reveals an October release date.
  • There are blurred-out double digits so it may launch in the middle of the month.

At this point, Call of Duty leaks right before their reveals are a time-honored tradition. Before every E3, Activision either distributes materials too quickly to retailers like GameStop, or the company ends up publishing a trailer before it's supposed to go up. This time around, the latter occurred. Activision released a trailer for a game called "Call of Duty: Modern Warfare" on YouTube. While this video was quickly pulled, it leaked an October release date. This information was revealed by Charlie Intel.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is rumored to be a soft reboot of the franchise. It's unclear if the game will continue the story of the series, or begin a new trilogy. We should find out in less than 24 hours. There are indications that the game contains a single-player campaign, but that hasn't been confirmed as of yet.

As with any such leak, take it with a grain of salt until we receive official confirmation. However, given the fact that it's from Activision, there's a lot of evidence to support an October release date. The blurred image looks like it contains double digits, so the game may launch towards the middle of the month.
