RUMOUR: Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 is a prequel

Posted By | On 05th, Jan. 2011

It’s no secret that Infinity Ward are working on Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, the next entry in this long running series, and according to a new online rumour, it’s going to be a prequel to their super hit 2007 title, Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare.

An ‘unnamed source’ told this to the site thisisxbox.com. This is the very same source that revealed Black Ops’ name and a lot of other info a year ago.

The source says the story will focus on the famous character from Modern Warfare 2, Ghost, and explain how he becomes one of the cool-looking masked soldiers in Task Force 141.

The source also says that the game will also have players revisiting locations from Modern Warfare and Modern Warfare 2 from a different perspective. Also, the game will not be developed on a new engine. One last and staggering report- Modern Warfare 3 will not, after all, be released this year.

Although it has been rumoured several times before, sometimes by IW workers themselves, that the game will hit the shelves this year, the source says otherwise. Does this mean that the Call of Duty franchise will take a much needed break this year? Or maybe Sledgehammer will be filling in the shoes this season?

Stay tuned, we will let you know as soon as we get our hands on the news.
