Professional Football Players Have Officially Played This Year's Call of Duty

Even though members of the press and YouTubers haven't gotten their hands on the new Call of Duty, one group has: professional football players.

It’s no secret that we know literally nothing about the next Call of Duty game, which is scheduled to release sometime later this year. While we are very quickly approaching the normal time that we would normally get the details on this year’s title, one group of people outside of Infinity Ward have already seen the game, much to my jealousy. Today several professional football players confirmed that they were able to attend a very exclusive, private event and play the new title.

Of course, given the fact that the title hasn’t even been announced yet, absolutely no details about the game were disclosed by the players, which consists of Florida State’s Jacques Patrick, University of Georgia’s Riley Ridley, and more. All the photos that were released from the event either feature the players against a very plain background or playing the game itself, with not even a sliver of the screens showing. While a small, distorted image of the screens can be seen on a TV in the background, it’s pretty hard to see anything on them.

Given the fact that it’s April 24, we’ll hopefully be hearing about the game sometime in the near future, which is rumored to be Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 4 (although this is not confirmed whatsoever). Last year’s Black Ops 4 reveal was on May 17, 2018, so we are quickly approaching the one year anniversary of that game’s reveal and that was considered by fans to be a late reveal.

As of the time of this writing, we have no idea when this year’s Call of Duty will hit, but it’ll be available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Windows PC.
