Call of Duty announced on Twitter the release date for the new Call of Duty game, Modern Warfare III. Call of Duty Modern Warfare III will become available on November 10, 2023, and features a new logo and lots of highly anticipated new features.

In 2022, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 became the biggest-selling game in the US. In Q4, it set the highest opening quarter in franchise history of $1.85 billion in net revenue, which was $694 million more than Q4 in 2021.

MW2 had a ten-day period for their open beta, which started on September 16 and ended on the 26. The ending date was roughly a month before the official release, which was on October 28. An open beta is set for a similar timeframe. Here is the full timeline for the Call of Duty Modern Warfare 3 launch:

  • Beta weekend 1 (PS4/PS5) – October 6, 2023 – October 10, 2023
  • Beta weekend 2 (PS4/PS5/Xbox One/Xbox Series X|S/PC) – October 12, 2023 – October 16, 2023
  • Campaign Early Access (PS4/PS5/Xbox One/Xbox Series X|S/PC) – November 2, 2023
  • Full Release (PS4/PS5/Xbox One/Xbox Series X|S/PC) – November 10, 2023
  • Season 1 Launch / New Warzone Map – December 5, 2023

Activision is sticking with the Modern Warfare series, with fans awaiting more details about what the game will entail. One of the mechanics many players have missed in MW2 was slide canceling. This allowed players to stop sliding when they were mid-slide or jump while sliding and allowed players to continue shooting during these motions. 

Certain creators received a potential leak that slide canceling would be back in MW3. They received a package that contained slides, a can, and a cell phone (slide-can-cell). 

There were several other leaks that came out, which are unconfirmed by Activision, and we likely won't get confirmation until we get closer to the release date. A few of the other highlighted leaks were the return of the ninja perk, red dots to minimaps, and a new gear perk system, allowing players to select certain gear and equip them with certain perks.

With a new CoD game comes updates to Warzone. As leaks began to surface, it was said that MW3 will feature a new map to the popular battle royale. In the leak, it was mentioned that Las Almas will be the large-scale BR map that will launch shortly after the initial release date.

As more intel surfaces, we will update you with everything we know.
