Call of Duty 2019 will be called Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, not to be confused with Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, which released in 2007.

The title was revealed when YouTuber LongSensation leaked it via Twitter, and publications including Kotaku and EuroGamer have since confirmed the title based on their own reporting.

The game will be the 16th in the long-running series, and the fourth in the Modern Warfare story arc. Kotaku also reports that the game, developed by Infinity Ward, will be a soft reboot of the Modern Warfare line of games. It will lean more heavily into troubling and realistic moments similar to the infamous "No Russian" mission from Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 from 2009.

The Call of Duty series was also recently in headlines for the upheaval surrounding its 2020 release, Call of Duty: Black Ops 5, as Activision reshuffled the developers in its standard release queue.
