Modern Warfare 4 being Call of Duty 2019 seems an absolute certainty at this point, even as developer, Infinity Ward, and publisher, Activision, stay silent on the countless rumours and leaks surfacing on an almost daily basis.
Only a few days ago we heard about the return of Pro Perks in Modern Warfare 4, a leak which would have surely excited old-school Call of Duty fans, particularly those with a love for Infinity Ward’s Modern Warfare games.
The latest leak, which is sure to generate the most of hype ahead of the inevitable Call of Duty 2019 reveal in the coming days, comes in perhaps the strangest way so far: by way of a number of NFL and college football players, who were invited by Activision to try out the new Call of Duty.
Influencers were using the hashtag “#CallOfDutyParner” across social media, with NFL prospects and NFL players alike getting involved in the action. How this all ties into Modern Warfare 4 is a bit of a stretch, but given what’s already been leaked, and the randomness of these leaks, it all seems a little too coincidental.
A Redditor posted a slowed-down video of the players battling it out in Call of Duty 2019, and you can kind-of-sort-of hear the words “killstreaks” and “Modern Warfare 4”. Make of that what you will. Killstreaks have long been touted as to be on the agenda to return in Modern Warfare 4, so it would make sense that, upon first playing the game, they would talk about it after first seeing the word on screen.
It’s difficult to get excited about that video on its own accord, because it really could just be people randomly talking about killstreaks, and the prospect of Modern Warfare 4, rather than directly referring to the game they’re playing. That said, it all ties into what has been a whirlwind month of rumours and chatter surrounding Call of Duty 2019.
Modern Warfare 4 really can be the series’ return to form, if it can make the most of what made the original Modern Warfare games so great. We should hopefully find out more information on Call of Duty 2019 in the coming days.
