With yesterday’s big reveal that this year’s Call of Duty will be a reboot of sorts for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, some might be assuming that we’ll see a rehash of gameplay, modes and so on. It seems that won’t be the case — for at least the Modern Warfare multiplayer.
While traditional Call of Duty multiplayer focused on 6v6 matches, it seems Modern Warfare will up the ante as it will feature a 20-player mode! Over on both the PlayStation Store and Xbox Store listings for the game, it mentions that Modern Warfare multiplayer will support “2-20” players online!
Obvious conclusion would be is that this is for the Ground War mode, though that one is capped at 18 players (nine per side). So this could be Infinity Ward rounding out that to 10 per side, or it could be for a new mode entirely. Maybe it’s the free-to-play mode being considered by Activision?
The wait won’t be long now as Activision will be showcasing Modern Warfare at this year’s E3, which will take place a week from now.
