Video game names can be confusing sometimes. Baffling, even. Not so much at the name itself, but the decision that goes into the unusual naming conventions that bring us oddities such as Battlefield 1, followed by Battlefield V.
This year’s Call of Duty is looking to go the extra mile with its confusing name. It has long been rumoured that 2019’s Call of Duty will be a fourth instalment in the Modern Warfare series. That much is a given at this point, so we’d expect it to be called Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 4. Nope.
According to Kotaku’s Jason Schreier, this year’s game will simply be called Call of Duty: Modern Warfare. No numbers. Just a simple name. Not to be confused with Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare.
Apparently this year’s game will be a “soft reboot” of the Modern Warfare franchise, though nothing else has been slipped out into the public just yet. We’re normally up to our necks in Call of Duty gossip by this point of the year but it seems Activision is holding on a little while longer to reveal this year’s umpteenth instalment in the popular shooter franchise.
