Modern Warfare 4 Could Be Coming in 2013

Modern Warfare 4 will be the next Call of Duty title and will release next year, according to a report by Siliconera.

Activision releases a new game in the Call of Duty franchise each year with a Modern Warfare title coming every other year since Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare launched in 2007. According to the report, the company is hard at work in Los Angeles recording voiceovers for their next game.

Although the game does not have an official title, it is said to be taking place in the same universe as Infinity Ward’s Modern Warfare titles. Series star John “Soap” MacTavish is featured in the game during a flashback sequence, the report says.

A new star for the franchise will also come into play. He will be a “battle hardened veteran in his mid-thirties with a nihilistic point of view.”

Of course, any rumor such as this has to be taken as merely a rumor. No information has been confirmed. However, the source of the leak is the same one responsible for providing information on Sleeping Dogs to the site over a year before it released. Those leaked details proved to be true.

The Modern Warfare franchise was widely expected to have ended with the release of Modern Warfare 3 last year. If the rumor holds true, it would seem as if Activision decided it would be too risky to turn the page on the franchise. It would be tough to blame them for that decision but it’s disappointing to see a lack of creativity.

The latest game in the Call of Duty franchise is Call of Duty: Black Ops 2. It released on Tuesday and surpassed $1 million in sales during the midnight launch at GameStop alone. This broke records as the biggest release since the last Call of Duty game. Seemingly every year, a new Call of Duty game comes out and breaks previous sales records.

    I think we all expected more from Modern Warfare 3, its a good game don’t get me wrong, but infinity ward could’ve done so much better. Im certainly not a treyarch fan, black ops was amazing for zombies but was a big fail on multiplayer. Blacks Ops 2, is an improvement from the first one. I will be disappointed in infinity ward if they decide to stop “their” Call of Duty trilogy. They definitely need to improve MW3 also.

    I hope they learn from there mistakes and make a game were it is all different from previous MW’s….and try to improve the detail and texture of their maps in multiplayer…if you notice,there were only 2 sunny maps in mw3 and it wasdome and hardhat,meanwhile everything else was fkking cloudy everywhere
