As if the case wasn’t already incredibly strong for this year’s Call of Duty entry to be a direct sequel to last year’s Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2, a new leak of some display material advertising a promotional tie-in with Monster Energy has seemingly revealed the title, logo and key art for Call of Duty Modern Warfare 3.
The images were posted to Twitter and shard by Call of Duty fan account CharlieIntel, and show protagonist Captain Price behind the familiar logo with a more red-hued vibe than I think I’ve seen the series go for in some time. Behind Price in the key art is what some fans believe to be the cold stare of regular series baddie, Vladimir Makarov.
Here’s the promotional material in question, containing what we can assume is some of the key art for Call of Duty Modern Warfare 3:

Adding burning, smoke-spilling fuel to the fire and all but confirming this leak is the official Call of Duty account having posted a tongue-in-cheek Tweet X not long after, which simply says, “Whew. Mondays. Anyone have an energy drink they can spare?”

In an earnings call for its second quarter, Activision confirmed that a new Call of Duty release was still on the way this year, saying “Activision’s teams are hard at work on major new instalments in the franchise slated for the fourth quarter. Development of this year’s full annual premium release on PC and console is proceeding well.”
Rumours have been swirling for some time that this year’s Call of Duty was originally slated to be a sizeable expansion for 2022’s Modern Warfare 2, but has since grown into its own full release to take on the title of Modern Warfare 3, with Sledgehammer Games on development. Based on recent social media polls it seems like players may be able to carry across their multiplayer gear and progress from MW2 to the new game.
