This year’s Gamescom event is looking like it’s going to be quite newsworthy, as it’s going to feature new content from just about every major publisher. And, on top of that, it looks like we’re going to get more information regarding the next installment in the Call of Duty series, Modern Warfare.

The host of Gamescom 2019’s Opening Night Live, Geoff Keighley, recently teased that there will be a special announcement for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare during the event.

On top of the teased special announcement, Infinity Ward will show off new gameplay, although it’s unclear whether or not it’ll be from the single-player campaign or if it’ll be from the various multiplayer modes.

As for what the announcement might be, well, it could be centered around the Spec-Ops mode, which hasn’t been officially detailed by the devs. They could also reveal that a Battle Royale mode is coming to Modern Warfare post-launch, which is something that recent rumors seem to suggest.

Infinity Ward also recently revealed that there will be a Ground War mode which can host up to 100 players, so we may see gameplay from the mode during Gamescom 2019’s Opening Night Live.

It was recently revealed that a portion of the single-player campaign will feature a section where you’ll play as a child soldier and that it might feature questionable and uncomfortable representations of violence. However, Infinity Ward has promised that the child soldier portion of the game will be handled tastefully.

Activision also revealed during a recent earnings call that this year’s Call of Duty game will receive more post-launch content than any other game in franchise history. Of course, as previously mentioned, the post-launch content might be headlined by a Battle Royale mode. But, in addition to that, we might learn more about CoD: MW’s post-launch content during Gamescom 2019.

This year’s event has promised to deliver at least 15 world premiere announcements, with Call of Duty: Modern Warfare being one of them. Other possible reveals include the release date for The Last of Us: Part II, a new trailer for Ghost of Tsushima, and perhaps some news regarding the PlayStation 5.

But for now, almost all of the games that will make world premiere announcements have been kept a secret, and probably for good reason. As of this writing, the only sure thing is that Infinity Ward will show new footage from Call of Duty: Modern Warfare.
