Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Series Won’t End with Modern Warfare 3

Call of Duty narrative director Brian Bloom has said the Modern Warfare subseries will continue to get new instalments beyond the upcoming Modern Warfare 3.

2011’s Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 was the conclusion to the Modern Warfare subseries, at least until it came back with its 2019 reboot. Unlike the original trilogy, however, the rebooted Modern Warfare series will not be ending with its upcoming third instalment.

That’s according to Call of Duty narrative director Brian Bloom, who said in a recent interview with The Washington Post that the rebooted series has a lot of stories and character arcs still left to cover, and that even with three games under its belt, it’s “just getting started”.

“We think of character arcs as going one way, but they can also fall off their arc, they can go backwards, people can evolve and devolve,” Bloom said. “All these things, they offer rich, fertile ground to tell stories, and that’s not going to stop. In fact, I would say we’re just getting started.”

Activision recently unveiled Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 in full, detailing the experience’s three main components and their biggest headlining features, including the multiplayer and its remastered maps, the single player campaign and its “Open Combat” missions, and a new open world PvE extraction take on the fan-favourite Zombies mode.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 launches on November 10 for PS5, Xbox Series X/S, PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
