Back in March Gaming INTEL’s sources contacted us with information regarding not just the state of Black Ops 4, including its similarity to Overwatch and lack of a campaign, but also information about Infinity Ward’s next release in 2019. One of Gaming INTEL’s exclusive sources has said that Call of Duty Modern Warfare 4 will be the next title, by Infinity Ward, to release in 2019.
Our sources stated that Call of Duty would release as a “fully fledged” Call of Duty title, with a campaign that is already being worked on, the customary Call of Duty Multiplayer experience and the return of its Zombies mode. This source also said that Battle Royale was being discussed for Modern Warfare 4, but at that point, it was merely discussions.
Adding further fuel to the fire were the actions of Craig Fairbrass last month. Fairbrass was a Voice Actor for the Modern Warfare series, and in March his twitter bio claimed that he had done voice work for Call of Duty Modern Warfare 1/2/3/4. Of course, at the time there was no Modern Warfare 4, which created a great deal of confusion for the community.
He later went on to state that he always had the five Call of Duty titles he had worked on in his Twitter Bio, and for clarification on that you needed only to look at his IMDB page.
Bit of confusion and over reaction here, as I’ve always had the 5 COD games I’ve worked on, on my mini bio on twitter- any clarification need just look on IMDB.

The IMDB page does indeed list five Call of Duty games, going from Modern Warfare in 2007 through Modern Warfare 2, Modern Warfare 3, Infinite Warfare and Modern Warfare Remastered. The only issue with this claim is that Modern Warfare Remastered required no extra voice recording as it used the very same voice clips as the original. Could Craig Fairbass have inadvertently leaked the game first?
With the recent revelation that developers from the original Modern Warfare development team had come back to Infinity Ward to work on the next game, it seems more likely than ever that these Modern Warfare 4 rumours are indeed accurate, though we must always stress that leaks should be taken with a grain of salt.
