This was finally revealed as part of a new tweet by the official Call of Duty Twitter account (seen below), with Infinity Ward adding “the new era of Call of Duty is coming.”

Last week Infinity Ward social media profiles had ‘gone dark’ but on closer inspection of the ‘all-black’ banners on Twitter it was noticed that you can see the faint silhouette of Call of Duty’s fan favourite character Ghost.
As many will know, the character first appeared in the original 2009 Modern Warfare 2 game.
VGC reports that the Modern Warfare 2 campaign will centre around the drug war against Columbian cartels. According to the site, sources have suggested to them that the single-player story will be “a grittier take on Modern Warfare 2019’s campaign”.
Likewise, VGC suggests the game will feature “more close-quarters combat, tricky decision making, and the classic Call of Duty set-piece moments”.
