The post-launch roadmap for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare will be the biggest in the franchise’s history, Coddy Johnson, COO of Activision, revealed during a recent investors call. We already know that Modern Warfare will eschew the old Season Pass model in favour of free content updates, so it sounds like the publisher has a lot in store for players.
Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare Post-Launch Plans Teased
Built on a engine with a step change in visual, audio and game play fidelity, Modern Warfare is breathtaking. There is just no other word for it. It includes a great campaign set in the current data we think stands apart from anything else in the industry and we’re thrilled about existing fans and new players.
Last week, multiplayer revealed between 36 of the world’s most prolific streamers play against one another under one roof, held the number one spot on the industry’s top gaming platform and the response from fans has been the strongest we’ve seen in years and fans will get the first taste of the action in our multiplayer open beta in September. We have a number of surprises in store after that including the largest post-launch content pipeline in franchise history.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is due out for PlayStation 4, PC, and Xbox One on October 25. Rumours have suggested that Infinity Ward will release a free-to-play battle royale mode for the shooter early next year, although nothing has been confirmed at this point.
Infinity Ward recently announced that the game will include dedicated servers, and the PS4 version will also include mouse & keyboard support. Captain Price is also back, but he’s now voiced by Barry Sloane instead of Billy Murray.
Call of Duty 2020 is reportedly in development at Treyarch and will feature a campaign that spans 40 years. In addition, Activision has indicated it won’t be scrapping its annual release schedule for the series.
