Activision has officially announced this year’s Call of Duty title and like previous rumours suggested, it’s Modern Warfare 3. A teaser trailer was recently posted by the publisher also confirming a release date of 10 November 2023. The entry will be developed by Sledgehammer Games and is billed as a continuation of 2022’s Modern Warfare 2, which was developed by Infinity Ward.
After a series of leaks and rumours, we finally have confirmation that Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 is set to arrive on 10 November this year. Sledgehammer Games previously worked on 2017’s Call of Duty: WWII and 2021’s Call of Duty: Vanguard, though the studio is mostly known for developing 2014’s Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare.
Previous reports suggested that Activision planned to release a major expansion for Modern Warfare 2 this year in place of a full release, though that project has since seemingly morphed into Modern Warfare 3. Activision also stated that this year’s entry would be a “premium release”. Fans are hoping that the next game contains the right amount of content to justify a full price tag, especially given that Sledgehammer Games only had a two-year development period on the game as opposed to the usual three-year cycle between the franchise’s key studios.
As of writing, it’s still unclear which platforms Modern Warfare 3 will release on. We can hopefully expect a more in-depth look at the game in the coming weeks as Activision ramps up the marketing closer to launch.
In other news, Activision recently announced that it’s adding new skins and Operators to Call of Duty: Warzone and Modern Warfare 2 in the form of popular musicians such as Nicki Minaj, Snoop Dogg and 21 Savage. Tomb Raider‘s Lara Croft is also expected to join the game as an Operator.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 is currently in development. Check out the teaser trailer below:
