After a hugely successful multiplayer reveal for Modern Warfare, where the Modern Warfare 2019 beta was finally announced, we got a first-hand look at weapons, attachments, killstreaks, a beta release date, maps and game modes that will be included in one of the biggest releases in franchise history.
Now the dust has settled, all eyes within the Call of Duty community turn to Gamescom 2019, where we hope to get some more information surrounding the campaign, spec ops mode and maybe a hint of what is to come for Call of Duty esports for the 2020 season.
When Is Gamescom 2019?
The dates when the general public can get their hands on some of the hottest releases of the year are the 21st -24th of August 2019. Traditionally, Gamescom is where Activision Blizzard reveal their plans for the upcoming Call of Duty esports season. In the run up to CoD Champs 2019, there has been minimal information surrounding league structure and the final five franchises that have yet to be confirmed for the season ahead.
What Can We Expect To See?
As mentioned above, Gamescom is typically the place where we hear some information surrounding esports. Along with that, it would be great to hear some new information regarding the return of a campaign mode for this title and the anticipated return of spec ops to Call of Duty. We will have to wait and see if there is any mention of a potential battle royale mode, after IGN reported that Infinity Ward are focusing on "core multiplayer" rather than a follow-up to the hugely popular Blackout mode on Black Ops 4.
What we will more than likely see is new gameplay from Call of Duty: Modern Warfare to get us excited for its release.
