Call of Duty 2019 has been revealed at a surprise Activision event.
While the new Call of Duty is yet to be unveiled in full to the public, a small number of fans have been given a look at the game during a private event.
American football players and Call of Duty fans Adoree’ Jackson, N’Keal Harry, Riley Ridley and Tajae Sharpe all appear to have played the game early.
Posting about the new Call of Duty on social media, the football players are full of praise for the upcoming release.

It’s unclear who else managed to see the game early, and if Activision plans to hold more private events in the run up to the game’s reveal.
It’s likely that the game will be revealed in full during an event in May.
Developed by Infinity Ward, the new Call of Duty release is expected to be part of the Modern Warfare saga.
It will also bring back a fan-favourite feature that was missing in Black Ops 4.
Activision President Rob Kostich confirmed that the new Call of Duty game would have a single-player story campaign.
“And then, if I look even further ahead to what Dennis mentioned, it’s worth mentioning again this fall’s launch, I think, is going to resonate very powerfully with our community. It is an amazing game.
“It’s going to feature an entirely new campaign, a huge and expansive multiplayer world, and of course some fun co-op gameplay.”
After confirming plans to include a single-player experience, Kostich said that the game is already creating a lot of buzz internally.
The views were echoed by CEO Bobby Kotick, who said that internal enthusiasm for the title was an all-time high.
“I will say that the team that’s building this game for us in Activision is building what they believe the best Call of Duty we’ve ever built,” the Activision CFO elaborated.
“And that team is certainly targeting growth even though we haven’t put it in our outlook in that fashion.”
