A New Chapter in Call of Duty’s Modern Warfare Universe Begins Tomorrow

A message from the Call of Duty team.

In just 24 hours, players will have the opportunity to jump into the Shadow Siege Limited Time Event and get a first look at the highly anticipated Call of Duty: Modern Warfare III. The game is set to launch on November 10th and represents a significant milestone for the franchise. For the first time in Call of Duty’s history, this year’s premium release serves as a direct sequel to the previous year’s Modern Warfare II.

The vision to deliver back-to-back Modern Warfare games has been years in the making. Sledgehammer Games has worked closely with Infinity Ward to create a blockbuster sequel in the Modern Warfare series, featuring the return of iconic heroes and villains. With this direct sequel, players will have the opportunity to grow closer to the characters, delve deeper into the storylines, and continue building their progression and loadouts without any interruption.

Each title release in the Modern Warfare series offers a unique gameplay experience and innovative features. However, Modern Warfare III aims to pay off what the previous titles have set up. It promises to settle old scores while also starting new ones. The back-to-back premium releases have the Call of Duty team thrilled for what the future holds for Modern Warfare and the entire franchise.
