A reveal trailer for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare III is coming on August 9, but that’s just the beginning of Activision’s plans to reveal the game. An official reveal event is set for August 17 in the battle royale game Call of Duty: Warzone, Activision has confirmed.
Activision revealed this through a text message promotion. If you text READY to the number below, Activision will text back to tell you there is a “major conflict incoming.”
“We need someone like you, with experience in Al Mazrah,” a follow-up reads. Things play out further from there, with Activision informing people they can expect “mission-critical intel” in the future. Another message includes an image of a map pointing to where the reveal event in Warzone will take place. You can see this image below.
This is a marketing campaign, so you should expect follow-up texts from Activision, but you can text STOP to opt-out.
