To no one’s surprise Call of Duty’s next installment will be set in the rebooted Modern Warfare franchise. With Infinity Ward confirming the news today.

The first game was met with high praise for its brutal views on warfare. The Clean House mission is often regarded as one of the most intense missions in the franchise. Many are hoping that Soap and Ghost will make an appearance this time but many eyes are on the multiplayer.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare’s multiplayer was saturated with issues ranging from netcode problems to weapon balance and spawning issues. This has become a standard within the franchise but many are hoping it won’t be present here. The common practice is for Activision to release the game with bare minimum content and many problems but fleshing out the game within the year. Leading up to the new game and the cycle begins again.

Call of Duty: Vanguard, the latest game, was one of the worse performing games in the franchise. It launched with the worse zombies mode according to the fanbase and the multiplayer lacked a ranked mode at launch. So anything beyond what that game offered would be a positive.
