Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 4 Denied By Infinity Ward
Written By
View author's profile

Infinity Ward has attempted to stuff the genie back in the bottle following yesterday's not at all surprising revelation from Captain Price voice actor Billy Murray (not that one), that Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 4 is in development at the Modern Warfare studio.

“Yeah, on Monday I am off to meet Infinity Ward about the next game, Modern Warfare 4, I’m doing work on the sequel to Modern Warfare 3, it carries straight on and I only ever appear in the Modern Warfare games…” Murray had initially said in an interview.

"Interesting news today, but it's not true. We've not talked with any voice actors, so all news is speculation." Infinity Ward  tweeted in response to the reports, at least denying the voice acting aspect of the game, though not flat out denying that Modern Warfare 4 is in the pipeline.

It seems entirely obvious that Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 4 is in development at Infinity Ward, although until an official announcement surfaces, we'll have to chalk this one up as rumour and/or speculation.

Maybe Price is being sarcastic??

Doubt it though.

Oohh MW4... Interesting to see how this plays out. You'd think ending a series on 4 would be a bit stupid, so maybe if they make a 4 they could make a MW5!! :D

Denying MW4 is happening, is like denying the existence of bacon. Except bacon is more awesome. ALOT more awesome.

Its a money making series of games, and they would be mentally challenged not to make another. Won't be surprised if they do make another.

Maybe it's a reboot that will give us back call of duty classic gameplay, world war 2.......... I don't know about everyone else but getting sick of everyone copying each other. MoH,CoD,Battlefield went modern at roughly same time, I get this feeling it's probably going to be called 'call of duty future warfare' (blame black ops 2 for that), If that happens then I won't be suprised one bit then moh, battlefield will do the same.......

If I remember correct MW3 has broken a few sales records the moment it came out. So yes they will be making MW4, 5, 6, 7, 8

Please no more regurgitated modern warfare bullshit. Take a couple of years out an 're-invent' the game.

At this point there is no 'reinventing the game'. The past setting has been done. The Modern setting has been done TO DEATH. The future setting is still relatively new for the series, but still been done.
The core gameplays fairly sound, and people still seem to be enjoying it. If they change it too much, they just risk upsetting that audience, if they don't, they risk boring that audience.
Frankly, I would not want to be in any of the Devs shoes. They're sitting on a jenga pile that will eventually collapse for either of the above reasons. Still, they've made a huge amount of money regardless.

If Activision was smart they'd let MW die, and create a new IP like Black Ops to give to (the shell of) Infinity Ward to make on their years.

Call of Duty still remains top of the list as most played games online. Till you fools stop playing it, it will be milked to death. So enjoy your Call of Duty for many, many, more years......

If they are still using captain price then maybe its more likely to be a prequel to the MW series rather than a sequel.

Anything with CoD on the front will sell because of the 12 year olds that play these types of games -.- MW4 will happen unfortunately though.

why on earth do IW cover everything up that is said about a new game before they have officially announced it. its not like were all surprised when they do reveal the new game we all no theres another cod coming november 2013. they must be stupid if they genuinely believe we dont no MW4 is the next game after BOP2 why not avoid the embarassement and just admit it.

Probably just using a different name, it'll be modern setting IW CoD for sure. Which is the only CoD I care for. WWII was one and done for me, and I don't care about any other wars. I like the modern setting and I definitely prefer IW over Treyarch, so I'm ready as long as they stick to modern. Let Treyarch do all the goofball zombies/time hopping stuff, keep IW on the present day stuff.

The last COD I bought was Black Ops. And I found that pretty meh. (Then again, the only FPS I play from time to time is Battlefield 1943 and Serious Sam.) Somone bought me MW3, i turned on the xbox, slid that shiny new disc in, started it up and.................. not more than Three minutes later the disc was out of the tray and making its way in to the big wide world via my living room window. MW4? Can Infinityward please change the record!

@30... wow... thats just... wow... I've not seen a more childish comment on these sections for some time...

We all know that the games being made, this is like the crap they tried to pull with MW3, where there where leaked details, the sites then that just posted for seeing them, seeing their special passe's disapearing.
IW is just a joke :/ They made some good titles, but things need to change. The Gaming image has been damaged enough by these titles now.

If it does happen, they will need a new villain and new story, so probably trilogy.. From what I remember MW3 had a definite ending in SP.

@8 Battlefield has already gone in to the future setting back in 2006 a la Battlefield2142 and it went into the modern setting 2 years before CoD4: Modern Warfare was released and MoH didn't get into the modern war setting until 2010.

I do hope it's not MW4, Infinity Ward should work on a different project inside the COD brand (although I would prefer them to start working on something completely different).

I honestly don't see this being anything but a prequel. They wrapped things up so nicely in MW3's campaign, that they really have nowhere to go if they go forward in time.
