Sarah Schachner will return to the Call of Duty series to do the music for this year’s Call of Duty: Modern Warfare reboot. Schachner said on Twitter that she “couldn’t be more thankful” to work on the game, and contribute again to the Call of Duty series.

It’s not a continuation of the Modern Warfare trilogy but rather a reboot of sorts of the 2007 game Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare. Captain Price is back as a main character, with some of the storylines involving Russia and the Middle East.
“The world we live in right now is more complex than the world was in 2007, or 2009, or even 2011,” narrative director Taylor Kurosaki said. “Even now the world that we live in, the battlefield is less defined than it’s ever been, and because it’s less defined and because enemies no longer really wear uniforms a lot of the time, that means that civilian collateral damage is a greater part of the equation more so now than it’s ever been.”
“So what does that mean? It means we’re creating circumstances where, as storytellers, we are taking these characters, and we are putting them into complex situations with a lot of pressure on them, and how they respond to that pressure reveals their true nature.”
In other news, it’s been confirmed that the new Modern Warfare supports cross-play and that it will not have a season pass. For lots more, check out the story linked below.
