Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 4 Art Leak Debunked
Hype for a potential Call of Duty: Modern Warfare continuation has peaked in recent weeks with several rumors and leaks alleging a fresh installment might be on track to release. Speculation again arose over the last few days when an alleged piece of promotional art surfaced, appearing to unofficially confirm that Modern Warfare 4 was surely on the way.
Seen above, the art does at the very least seem convincing, not only for its professional quality, but for the presence of an official-looking logo for “Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 4.” Variants of the image have been spreading across all forms of social media for days, convincing many of the fourth game’s eventual arrival. However, it now appears doubters were correct, as the art leak has now been thoroughly debunked.
Journeying over to artist showcase site ArtStation, a work submitted by René Aigner has unquestionably squashed all validity of the widely-circulated “leak.” Titled “Team Echo,” the striking piece of military art is undeniably stylish, enough so that it could almost definitely pass for a Call of Duty advert. It appears a crafty online fan came to the same conclusion, but went a bit further in actually slapping a Modern Warfare 4 logo overtop of it.
That’s not to say that a new Modern Warfare isn’t a possibility. Evidence has been stacking up pointing to a potential release in 2019 and the availability of several rumored features such as battle royale and a campaign consisting of Modern Warfare 2. None of these potential details or even the game’s existence have yet to be addressed by Activision or Infinity Ward, but fans are sure to keep speculation alive in the meantime.
What do you think? Are you bummed that this Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 4 art wasn’t real, or do you still think there’s a fourth installment on the way?
