It's been a long wait for Call of Duty fans. Amidst rampant speculation about the identity of the next Call of Duty game, between Infinity Ward's former creative strategist Robert Bowling issuing Modern Warfare-related teases and a plethora of other indicators, Infinity Ward's Taylor Kurosaki, the Studio Narrative Director, has responded to a fan's desperate plea for a teaser or reveal.
Aside from the internet's abundance of theorizing and spreading of rumors about 2019's Call of Duty game, Twitter user Scarpelt the COD Warrior reached out to Studio Narrative Director Taylor Kurosaki, as well as to Activision and Infinity Ward generally, to get some information. The reason for this, he states in a formal letter, is that fans "are getting very anxious, and actually fighting each other and being toxic on the internet... People are just being jerks to each other on the Subreddit."
Kurosaki responded in a relatively reassuring tone. In a tweet, Kurosaki said, "Take a deep breath. Be patient. Great things come to those who wait."
To Scarpelt's point, Modern Warfare 4's Subreddit has featured a considerable amount of speculative posts. From those of merchandise listings indicating a June reveal for the next Call of Duty to fake logos and concept art, it can be hard to discern the truth, especially given the apparent authenticity of the materials when compared to previous Modern Warfare logos and concept art.
In any case, it's endearing that Kurosaki stepped in to assure Scarpelt that Infinity Ward's next Call of Duty installment will be of great satisfaction. It shows the company is loyal and sympathetic to its fans.
Given that past Call of Duty games have typically been announced in late April or early May, it's easy to understand the frustration of fans. Moreover, in lieu of ample rumors that the next game will belong to the revered Modern Warfare lineage, either in the form of Modern Warfare 4 or a Modern Warfare 2 remaster, it's safe to say that some frustration will continue regardless.
2019's Call of Duty game currently has no official release information.
