Call of Duty: Modern Warfare launched to rave reviews last October, presenting fans with a grittier more realistic take on the franchise.

In our review we scored the reboot 8/10 praising its campaign, audio design, and changes to the core gameplay:

Infinity Ward was never going to recapture the magic of the original Modern Warfare, but this is still their most memorable Call of Duty game of the past decade. This is a bold new spin that’s uneven in places, but proves there is still room for innovation within that core template.

Activision recently confirmed that Call of Duty: Warzone now has more than 60 million players. On top of that the publisher stated Modern Warfare had sold through more copies than every other entry in the series at this point after their release. Even with the ongoing success of both games, we can expect yet another Call of Duty to launch in 2020.
