Activision recently held their Q1 investor call to take a look back at the past few months and discuss some of their upcoming plans. In addition to host of statements regarding the upcoming instalment, it appears as though the Call of Duty 2019 reveal is just around the corner.
CoD 2019 Reveal in May
During the investor call, Activision President Rob Kostich confirmed that Call of Duty 2019 “will be revealed later this quarter,” reassuring fans that an announcement was immiment. The only problem is that “later this quarter” can technically mean anytime between now and the end of June, however.
Following a new report, it seems as if the Call of Duty 2019 reveal will almost certainly be taking place in May. “You won’t have to wait til June”, says Eurogamer news editor Tom Phillips. This also lines up with information Gaming INTEL has received.
While a reveal in May has been the norm for the vast majority of previous Call of Duty titles, this shouldn’t come as much of a surprise.
It also happens to be the case that Phillips was one of many journalists to recently tease Modern Warfare 4, which was first leaked by Gaming INTEL back in May 2018.
In a recent Eurogamer article about some NFL stars getting their hands on the title prior to its launch, the words “Modern”, “War”, “Fair”, and “Four” were implemented as a cryptic teaser, which is even more reason to believe MW4 will be the upcoming addition to the franchise.
Activision Q1 Investor Call
Alongside confirmation of a rough time period for the CoD 2019 reveal, Activision also made comment on other aspects of the upcoming game. Here’s what they said:
- It’s their “biggest and most important CoD launch.”
- The title “will be released in quarter 4, 2019.”
- The game and its post launch content will deliver “game changing” oppurtunities for fans.
- Infinity Ward are “hard at work” on Call of Duty 2019.
- Activision are “excited for what’s coming later this year.”
- They “continue to feel incredibly good about this year’s game.”
Although a few of these quotes are usually mentioned every year in some way, shape, or form, it really does appear as though Modern Warfare 4 will truly revolutionise the franchise for the best.
