We’ve long been waiting for the official Call of Duty 2019 reveal — and, hopefully, Modern Warfare 4 — with this year’s offering being held behind closed doors for much longer than previous Call of Duty entries. We may be set for an even longer wait if the latest leak is to be believed.
By way of the folks over at Charlie Intel, a supposed leaked image from an internal GameStop system points to Call of Duty 2019‘s reveal being locked in for June 4.
The image surfaced on Reddit, reportedly via user xBells, however their profile has no attached content, posts, or comments. A quick search for a cached version of their profile and page yields no results.
There’s not much in the way of information such as Call of Duty 2019‘s release date, but the word’s “Employee T-Shirt” and the date of June 4 suggest GameStop employees will start wearing the attire on the day of/after the reveal to promote pre-orders.
A June 4 reveal would be relatively in line with what Activision Blizzard detailed earlier this month regarding Call of Duty 2019‘s reveal.
The company’s recent investor’s conference detailed its plans for Infinity Ward’s latest, confirming that announcements and the official reveal for Call of Duty 2019 won’t be made until the end of the current quarter, being June.
It could well come before then, but Activision Blizzard may be looking to optimise excitement around the game by revealing it during the typically slow US summer period, or perhaps even during E3, which takes place June 11 – June 13.
A June 4 reveal would be perfect timing leading into E3: reveal the game, get people excited, and then take to the stage and showroom floor to show the game in action to the masses.
There’s been plenty of chatter regarding what the game may actually be, with all signs pointing to Modern Warfare 4. Only a few days ago we heard about the return of Pro Perks in Modern Warfare 4. A few days later we received a sort-of-confirmation by way of a number of NFL and college football players, who were invited by Activision to try out the new Call of Duty.
