Yesterday Activision held a private event for a number of college football stars and other NFL stars via Instagram, posting with the hashtag #CallofDutypartner. This has once again sparked the rumor mill on what exactly it is that we might see from the franchise titan Call of Duty. Many players said that they got to play the “new Call of Duty”.
So….several college football players and other “Call of Duty partners” have shared on Instagram that they got to play the “new Call of Duty” at a private event today. https://t.co/Cm6PqDdNCu pic.twitter.com/R0L2CySvIg

But it gets stranger….
On 4chan the same day, a user in the now shut down thread /v/board posted a 7 second video of what seems to be a Modern Warfare 4 announcement teaser. While 4chan has been notorious for totally fabricated stories to spur rumor mills, they have also been known to have accurate information leaked on their platform in the past. It is definitely strange that Activision had an event specifically for Call of Duty.
The internet has been playing detective trying to decide what will be the next title from the Call of Duty franchise. What do you think? Do you think it really is MW4? Or is it going to be Ghosts 2? The Modern Warfare 4 teaser could have been a decoy, or simply just something fake. Could we see a totally new story line in the making?
One user on Reddit went so far as to slow down a video taken at the Activision event that has added to the mystery. Take a look.
We’re not sure what it means but be sure to follow us on social media to stay connected to the mystery! We will post any further information we find! Let us know what you think in the comments!
