Source: 2019's Release Will "Revive" Call Of Duty, Including "Overall Business Model"
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":
And I know "this title will revive Call of Duty" is said every year, but this title is so different on so many different levels. The core game, the DLC, eSports and even the overall business model of the game, everything will change. Stay tuned.

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.
