Call of Duty 4 confirmed

"Modern Warfare" details soon.

Activision has confirmed long-running rumours that Infinity Ward is working on a Call of Duty game in a contemporary setting.

Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare will be unveiled on Saturday in the US courtesy of a trailer to play during the NFL Draft on ESPN. That's when they pick the teams, genius.

Early rumours about Modern Warfare - which even got the name right - pointed to a game that takes you all over the world, with the player working for the US Army, US Marines and SAS in a battle against terrorists underpinning a Middle Eastern conflict.

There were lots more rumoured details last March, although how much of that still stands will be tough to answer before Saturday's reveal - and Sunday and Monday's inevitable reposting on YouTube and elsewhere.

In the meantime, why not join in the merry chorus of shouting sceptics achingly unsurprised by the decision to "do a Battlefield" and move the formerly World War II-based first-person shooter series into a fictionalised setting? It's what all the cool kids are doing.

Expect more on platforms, details, and all the rest when we sober up on Monday.
