Los Angeles Times has reported (via IGN) that a third game in the super successful Modern Warfare sub-series of Call of Duty is in development, and that it will be releasing this November. In which case, we can say goodbye to all the Fall releases, including Uncharted 3, Elder Scrolls V, Mass Effect 3, Arkham City and every other game in the time frame. It’s Call of Duty, heavens help us.
According to anonymous sources, LA Times says, Acivision is having Sledgehammer Games and Raven (developers of Singularity) help Infinity Ward with the completion of MW3. Reportedly, Sledgehammer and IW are playing equally important roles developing the single player mode, whereas Raven is working on the multiplayer component.
Due to this, Sledgehammer has had to put its own Call of Duty game’s development on hold. It was also recently rumoured that Raven were working on a Call of Duty project. They were looking for a “lead visual effects artist to drive the development of stunning visual effects for an established console-based, realistic, first-person military shooter.”
I guess that wasn’t a new Call of Duty game after all, maybe they were just hiring for the Multiplayer of Modern Warfare 3.
It was also recently rumoured that Modern Warfare 3 will be a prequel, and that it will focus of the famous character from Modern Warfare 2, Ghost, and how he came a soldier of Task Force 141.
When IGN asked Activision about this report by LA Times, the firm said, “There’s been much speculation recently. We look forward to releasing details for the next Call of Duty in the near future.”
Stay tuned. We will keep you updated as more news comes our way.
