The sixth “Call of Duty” game within its Modern Warfare sub-series is to take the name “Call of Duty: Modern Warfare” according to YouTuber and Twitter user LongSensation.


It helps establish a recent trend for back-to-basics naming conventions in long-running franchises after 2018’s “God of War”, the umpteenth entry to a series of the same name.

In reporting the leaked name for “Call of Duty: Modern Warfare”, Kotaku confirmed that it had heard the same “from many sources connected to the ‘Call of Duty’ world,” with its reporter, Jason Schreier, telling Twitter followers that a “soft reboot” was in line.

Eurogamer suggested an official reveal was set for May 30, per its own sourcing. RGA/JB
