At the Call of Duty XP event, Infinity Ward detailed the script of Modern Warfare 3 and how long it was. In a panel called ‘The Voices of Call of Duty’, voice artists who have lent their talents for the game were answering questions fired by those in the audience. Nolan North and Michael Rooker and Captain Price voice actor Billy Murray were some of the famous people present in the booth.
Keith Arem, Activision talent director and panel host, revealed that Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 will have 10,000 more lines of dialogue than last year’s Call of Duty: Black Ops. “To give everyone a kind of perspective, if you look at an average television show, a half-hour series, that has about 400 lines of dialogue, and a full motion picture is going to have around 1,500 lines of dialogue,” said Arem.
“By the time we add in 80, 90, 100 characters and all the soldiers, I think on Black Ops we were pushing 25, almost 30,000 lines of dialogue. We’re at about 41,000 lines of dialogue in Modern Warfare 3 right now.
“Managing that much content, we record over a year, and we’re on the motion-capture stage, we’re in the voiceover booth.”
William Fichtner will also be voice acting a character in the game, and his character, Arem says, is “a very prominent character, one of the lead characters.” Fichtner is famous for his voice works in GTA: Vice City, GTA: San Andreas, and Turok. He also played the bank manager in the beginning of The Dark Knight.
