Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is a fully reimagining of the Modern Warfare series that was released years ago for Call of Duty, but Infinity Ward is bringing back some fan favorite characters, reimagined, for this game.
The trailer confirmed the return of Captain Price for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare with his iconic look, but Infinity Ward did not showcase other characters that could be returning to Call of Duty: Modern Warfare.
Polygon, in their in-depth article from their time at Infinity Ward, states that John “Soap” McTavish is also returning in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare.
While the game will bring back Tier 1 operators, including SAS operatives Captain John Price and John “Soap” McTavish, both reimagined for Modern Warfare, we’ll also see how war affects rebels and freedom fighters from their first-person perspective.
Infinity Ward only mentioned to us during our time that Price was back and declined to comment on any other characters return for now, so we’re not sure if this was meant to be revealed by Polygon yet.
