Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is set to have a proper showcase at E3 2019 in a Coliseum event that is taking place on June 11 at 3:00pm PT. Prior to that, though, members of Infinity Ward have appeared on some E3 2019 streams to discuss the game, revealing some previously unknown details about Call of Duty: Modern Warfare.
For example, we know that Call of Duty: Modern Warfare will be using environments scanned in from the real world and brought into the game. Through this method, the environments in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare will be "100% realistic in size," according to Infinity Ward and as reported by CharlieINTEL.
This strive for realism is apparent in other areas of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare as well, and seems to be one of the main focuses of the game. Part of this realism will be depicting the horrors of war that most other shooter games tend to avoid, which means the game will have some potentially uncomfortable and controversial scenes.

One of the most publicized controversial scenes in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is a mission that occurs early in the game where players control a child soldier. Not only does the child soldier mission show a child brutally murdering people, but it also shows dead kids and a dying dog, which has already drummed up some controversy.
Between the grim and honest depiction of war and the realistic environments, it seems as though Infinity Ward may very well succeed in its goal to make Call of Duty: Modern Warfare as realistic as possible. Meanwhile, the game's use of scanned-in environments isn't the only new thing we learned about Call of Duty: Modern Warfare from Infinity Ward devs recently.
We also learned that Call of Duty: Modern Warfare will have Spec Ops, the co-op mode that was featured in Modern Warfare 2 and 3. Details on Spec Ops are scarce at this time, but perhaps more on it will come to light as E3 rolls on.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare launches on October 25 for PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
