Given the recent speculation that Activision will be going for a new MMO game rather than the sequel to the last year hit Modern Warfare 2, we at Gaming Bolt decide to write a short article on five developers that could probably develop Modern Warfare 3. So let’s get started:
As we all know, Valve is well known for their success with the Half Life series, Counter-Strike, Team Fortress and Portal. Given that they might be pretty busy in developing Half Life 2: Episode 3, the team might have some trouble developing the next game in the Modern Warfare series. If The Orange Box was something to go by, expect a ton of freebies along with the game.
Responsible for super hits games like F.E.A.R., Condemned and the Aliens versus Predator franchises, Monolith could possibly do a great job with Call of Duty. Although I agree that the games they have developed are not based on any kind of warfare, we know they would make a rock-solid game judging by the pedigree of quality games that they have developed in the past.
Halo Reach will be the last Halo game developed by the guys at Bungie so that will actually open doors for developing the next Modern Warfare game. When you have achieved global success with every possible Halo game out there, it would be no surprise if Bungie actually develop Modern Warfare 3.
After developing two super hit games in Gears of War and Gears of War 2, Epic are the pinnacle of video games development. They are truly the one developer that has maxed out the Xbox 360 to its limit, which just goes to show that they give their best on whatever hardware they work on. If Epic works on Modern Warfare 2, it would be just one thing: epic.
Having a legacy of great games like Brother in Arms, Tony Hawks Pro Skater 3 and the most recent game, BorderLands, GearBox is one of the most talented groups of developers out there in the first person shooter genre. The amount of innovations and the experimentation that they did in BorderLands was amazing and fortunately for them it worked. Do they have what it takes to develop a globally renowned franchise like Call of Duty? Hell yeah!
