The next Call of Duty game will be titled Call of Duty: Modern Warfare. That will probably confuse some people who conflate it with the similarly named 2007 title, but what might be even more confusing is how it's "so different on so many levels," according to one source -- which could include a focus on free-to-play.

YouTuber LongSensation was the first to break the news of the 2019 installment's simple title, which was later confirmed by official sources. Now he's saying even more about the game, including how it will "revive Call of Duty":

Talk of the "overall business model" naturally has us wondering about free-to-play, and whether that will be applied to the game -- or at least its PvP components -- as a whole or simply to one part of the game, similar to how the Blackout mode for Black Ops 4 was free for a while. It's looking more and more like Blackout was a test case for Activision, to see how Call of Duty F2P would be implemented and received.

Word is that a reveal of the game is coming tomorrow; in fact, the primary Call of Duty twitter account has "gone dark," which leads one to think that an announcement is forthcoming. In any case, E3 is just around the corner, so if not tomorrow, we should learn something pretty soon.

No way they are making it F2P. They are more likely to make it sub based. It's not like they don't have a history of saying that their games are so amazing and cost so much to make that they could have started charging a monthly sub if they wanted.

That being said, switch to F2P may actually renew my interest in the series (as long as gameplay is good and battle royale isn't the only free game mode).

I like to think of this time for gaming as the Zombie era. Developers just won't let a already used and abused franchise die. And the fans are as brain dead as the developers, stuck in limbo, jumping on the next game to get their fix.
