Okay, so we’re a little confused ourselves. The idea of a Modern Warfare Trilogy has been around since the birth of the third title in the series, Call of Duty Modern Warfare 3. The rumors were circling the Internet right up until the moment Activision announced they were bundling a remastered version of the fan favorite original Call of Duty: Modern Warfare in with the recently revealed, upcoming Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare.
These rumors seemingly came from a pretty reliable source, in the form of a product listing on Amazon. Naturally, this was quickly rectified and taken down but not before some eagle-eyed social media users managed to take note of all the information. Now however another retailer has supposedly leaked a listing ahead of a potential reveal including additional information AND the ability to pre-order.
The listing states that the Trilogy will contain all three games from the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare series and is supposedly being made for Xbox 360 and PS3 as opposed to the newer-generation of consoles. The listing goes as follows:
“Call of Duty Modern Warfare Trilogy contents:
Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, Modern Warfare 2 + DLC 1 (Stimulus Package includes 5 maps), Modern Warfare 3
Modern Warfare specific points:
One of the most critically-acclaimed games in history

As always we’d just like to take this opportunity to advise that this news is all taken with a pinch of salt, you can’t trust EVERYTHING you read on the Internet (except us, you can trust us), but the rumors do at least have a little logic in them on this occasion. The next Call of Duty in the series (Infinite Warfare) will be the first to release exclusively to the new-generation consoles meaning no new COD for those who you who are yet to jump ship. It’s likely that if a MW Trilogy is in the works, it’s simply to plug that gap, covering lost sales from previous generation console owners. After all, it’s what the fans want right?
