PS5 and Next Xbox to Get Call of Duty 2019: Report
Highlights
  • Modern Warfare 4 may follow Black Ops 4
  • It could be on next-gen consoles
  • Cyberpunk 2077 would also be on existing and next-gen consoles

It appears that the next Call of Duty game, possibly called Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 4, may be on the PS5 and next Xbox. According to a job listing unearthed by VGR for Infinity Ward - the studio behind Call of Duty Modern Warfare, 2019's Call of Duty could be a next-gen game. It calls for a narrative scripted on a temporary basis to work on a "new, unannounced title for multiple next gen platforms". Considering Call of Duty 2019 is being helmed by Infinity Ward is yet to be announced, it could be focussed on the PS5 and next Xbox.

If true, it could mean that we would have a repeat of cross-generation titles that peppered the early days of the PS4 and Xbox One, with the PS3 and Xbox 360 getting pared down versions of games such as Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes and Watch Dogs. At the moment, CD Projekt Red's Cyberpunk 2077 is also slated to be a title for PS5 and next Xbox along with PS4, Xbox One, and PC.

Developer CD Projekt Red showed off the game behind closed doors with the general consensus among those who have seen it that it's further ahead in development than expected. That said, it was running on an extremely powerful PC rather than the PS4 Pro or Xbox One X leading to a host questions regarding if it would be a cross-generation game or not. 

"CD Projekt has alluded to the fact before and trying to clarify exactly what formats the game will be released on involved a series of nervous questions between CD Projekt staff, unsure of what exactly they should be saying. Eventually we got them to admit it would be coming out on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC, with a nervous little laugh making it clear that also appearing on next gen consoles was very much the plan (which also gives a hint as to when the game will be released)," reports Metro Gaming.
