Ahead of the plans to unveil the game later this week, a spokesperson for the publisher told Charlie Intel that this year’s series entry will be a full price release.
“As stated in numerous Activision Blizzard quarterly conference calls, Modern Warfare III is a premium release,” they said. “It will be price[d] accordingly at $70 USD.”
In February, Bloomberg claimed Activision had originally planned to release a major expansion for 2022’s Modern Warfare 2 this year, but that the DLC had morphed into a full game.
Citing people familiar with the project, it claimed Activision’s goal for the new Call of Duty was to make a game that feels “like a standalone, full-price release and also an extension of Modern Warfare II”.
Activision recently detailed how players will be able to carry over most of their collected Modern Warfare 2 content to Modern Warfare 3.
It plans to reveal the game on August 17 during a Call of Duty: Warzone event starting at 10.30am PT / 1.30pm ET / 6.30pm BST 7.30 CEST.
