Modern Warfare III: Name Confirmed By DMCA Request
The MW3 internal alpha playtests are currently underway, which led to some info about the new game being leaked on Twitter. We already reported about the leaked MW3 weapons as well as the returning features and more. Naturally, Activision's lawyers started claiming leaked images on social media and by doing so, accidentally revealed the name of CoD 2023:
As you can see here, the DMCA request clearly states the name "Modern Warfare III" and thus confirms the name of CoD 2023. While this isn't really surprising at all, we finally have an official confirmation that this year's installment of Call of Duty will in fact continue the Modern Warfare 2 story and thus conclude the "new" Modern Warfare trilogy.
Since the name is now all over the internet, we expect an official reveal with press release from Activision soon. Until then, check out the latest leaks about CoD 2024, which will most likely be Black Ops Gulf War.
