The hugely successful Call of Duty franchise is rumoured to be releasing another title to tie in with the PS4 and Xbox 720.
Although Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 has yet to be released, COD developers aren’t resting on their laurels and speculation is rife that Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 4 is the next instalment we can expect to see from the action-packed games series.
Modern Warfare 4 out next year?
If previous release date patterns for COD are taken into account, Modern Warfare 4 should be in gamers’ hands by November 2013.
However, as Infinity Ward normally releases a new COD every other year, a launch in 2014 can’t be ruled out. Further speculation suggests that the game could be one of the first titles to feature on the new platforms.
There has of course been nothing concrete from Activision or anyone else, so it was down to some sneaky internet sleuths to unearth the gossip.
Next-gen MW4 rumours
The rumours of a next-gen COD game come courtesy of an Infinity Ward engineer, whose CV was found online and spread throughout the gaming world.
On his CV, the engineer boasts that he is working on an “unannounced title” for XB2 – presumably the next generation of Xbox – as well as PS3 and ‘TBA’.
A job listing posted by the Call of Duty developer earlier this year also points to a Modern Warfare 3 follow-up for the next generation of gaming machines:
“Infinity Ward, developer of numerous award-winning games, including Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, is seeking a Senior Animator, preferably with experience in-game development and an interest in working with next-generation technologies.”
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 recently hit the headlines about its TV ad containing “frightening” content, so its follow-up is likely to make waves for both the wrong and right reasons.
