This is what you need to know about Call of Duty: Modern Warfare release date including how to play early, a look at gameplay and other key details about the 2019 Call of Duty game.
Here’s what you need to know about the new Call of Duty game that arrives in October with a return of the single-player campaign mode and some of your favorite characters as part of a new story. You’ll also get cross-play support for the first time in a Call of Duty game.
On the multiplayer side, this is a more traditional Call of Duty game focused on the modes many of us grew up with. Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 continues to lock down the Call of Duty Battle Royale mode and Activision reportedly tapped Treyarch to deliver Black Ops 5 in 2020 where you can expect more Battle Royale modes.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Release Date
The Call of Duty: Modern Warfare release date is October 25th for the Xbox One, PS4, and PC. This is a Friday, and you don’t need to buy a special edition to play on Friday.
There is an earlyCall of Duty: Modern Warfare Call of Duty: Modern Warfare release date at Best Buy. You can go into your Best Buy on October 24th right at closing and buy Call of Duty. This means, no waiting until midnight to play. Best buy says this works at all locations, but if you are concerned, you can check at your local store. GameStop normally does a similar offering, but so far it is not listed.

2019 Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Season Pass
Activision announced that they will not offer a Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Season Pass, but instead will focus on free maps and cross play support.
“Every design decision has been made with our players in mind,” said Patrick Kelly, Creative Director and co-Studio Head, Infinity Ward. “With the launch of Modern Warfare, we’re taking steps to unite the community. First, we plan for Modern Warfare to be played together across PC and console through cross-play support. Second, we’re eliminating the traditional season pass, so that we can deliver more free maps and content as well as post-launch events to all players. This is just the beginning – there’s much more to come.“
It’s not clear exactly what the post release monetization will be, but we expect to see in app purchases of some kind, potentially focused on cosmetics.
2019 Call of Duty Modern Warfare Systems
The Call of Duty: Modern Warfare release is coming to the PS4, Xbox One and PS4. This includes all models of these consoles, though you can expect better graphics on the Xbox One X, PS4 Pro and on higher-end gaming PCs.
There is cross-play support that will allow gamers to play across all three systems. The PC version is only available on Blizzard Battle.net, so you won’t find it on Steam.
There is no support for the Nintendo Switch, and you shouldn’t expect to see it added later on down the line.
