New Call of Duty: Modern Warfare game that is set for a reveal sometime in the next few weeks will be full of dark, troubling, emotional and realistic moments which are inspired by the controversial mission No Russian from Modern Warfare 2.

Earlier this week, we got a couple of reports about the name of the next Call of Duty game, which will be Modern Warfare reboot. As weird and confusing as it sounds, the new shooter from Infinity Ward and Activision will be called Call of Duty: Modern Warfare. That's it, no number, no additional words to make it stand out from the original.

Anyway, as you may recall from the sequel - Modern Warfare 2 - a mission named No Russian was pretty controversial, to put it lightly. It put players in the boots of an undercover CIA agent who took part in a terrorist attack on a Moscow airport as part of a false flag operation. It let players participate in the mass shooting of civilians and it wasn't received very well from the governments all over the world.

Kotaku reports that new Call of Duty: Modern Warfare will be inspired by this mission. According to Jason Schreier, Modern Warfare will be "heavy on troubling, realistic emotional moments", which are "very much inspired by the controversial No Russian mission".

If this is true, then we're getting a pretty dark story and potentially some new controversial moments but it's unclear how far will Modern Warfare push this narrative. Call of Duty never shied away from these things and its campaigns are often filled with dark moments.

Call of Duty Modern Warfare will be a soft reboot of the original and it's scheduled to release sometime in Autumn 2019, which is the traditional release date for most Call of Duy games. Since the game is yet to be revealed, we don't know the specific platforms but you can bet it's coming to PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
