Activision and Infinity Ward have confirmed multiple, big gameplay features for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, this year's Call of Duty coming to PS4, Xbox One, and PC in October. More specifically, over on Reddit, co-design director of multiplayer Joe Cecot has confirmed the series will continue to have offline bots, and this includes in the Modern Warfare soft reboot. In other words, you can play some form of the mutliplayer even if you don't have friends to play with via LAN or an Internet connection to play traditional online multiplayer.
Meanwhile, Cecot also confirmed that custom games are back, which is a feature fans have been wondering about for awhile now. Unfortunately, it sounds like Infinity Ward isn't doing anything new in this regard. However, we do know 2v2 Gunfight mode will allow for 3v3 via custom matches, as well as 1v1, which is how Infinity Ward would actually (but probably not actually) settle things around the office.
Lastly, and perhaps most interestingly, the multiplayer design director confirmed there will be a realism mode for maps that gets rid of HUD and crosshairs. In addition to this modifier, there will also be a night mode modifier, but it sounds like this will only be for some maps.
