Activision Make Bold Claims About the Next Call of Duty Game – MW3?

By Posted 12 May 2011, 10:03

Previously we gave you a release date that was rumoured for the next call of duty game and also we said that the game was codenamed Project Colossus which we thought may have been a hint for the scale of the next game. Today we have some more information regarding what could possibly be Modern Warfare 3.

We heard from Computerandvideogames that Activision’s CEO has said “The creative excellence and sheer scale of the game we are making, and the unprecedented online universe that will accompany it will re-set the bar for this genre”. These bold claims suggest that Activision are excited about their next release and we could be in for a treat.

The CEO also promised that the game will give players “a new level of immersion, connectivity and community”. It sounds like the online has been improved greatly which will be pleasing for gamers of the previous COD titles, as this was possibly the most popular aspect of the series. An “unprecedented online universe” was added to emphasise this.

These are the claims that have been given, but do you believe the hype? The Call of Duty series has been a very popular and successful series for Activision so far, how do you think they have gone about improving the next installment? What new introductions would you like to see? Let us know in the comments section below.

    g36c assault rifle?
    a mode using kinect and some sort of peripheral as a gun?
    spec ops to return bigger than before?
    theater mode?
    character and weapon customization?
    call of duty 4 MP included with the game?

    looking forward to the game. its got a lot to live up to though!

    • brad

      You will have to pay to play on there sever. when I have to pay an extra $5-$10. a month to play online is when I stop playing.

      • richard

        Activition said that Call of duty will never be a pay to play for multiplayer.

      • Joshua Oliver

        They are only starting a new system for people who want extra features (that are not already included for free). This will be a monthly subscribtion that will allow you to get the map packs for free, have analysis of your preformance with each gun, etc. The core CoD multiplayer as we know it will still be free.

  • ryan

    Just hype im cod all the way but if this is no diff to MW2 or black ops it will get eaten alive by bf3

  • Phil

    Infinity ward…. Dump Treyarch
    Spec Ops!!
    Dynamic Maps with Special Items you could use on the map (guns, small Vehicles, map perks)
    allow 3 attachments on a weapon for Bling as the pro option
    Diving
    Fist Fighting!!!

  • The Kinected Gamer

    @tyson
    pay to play mp? They have already dismissed this, it's not happening
    theater mode? You know the theater will make a return from black ops
    character and weapon customization? Black Ops had it and so will the next COD game

    Infinity ward…. Dump Treyarch

    This is what they need to fix with the whole COD series, including MW3:

    - get rid of open mic, too many people have poor mics that produce feedback, and in games it over powers natural sounds like footsteps. Use a closed mic system.

    - get dedicated servers for multiplayer. Once again Black Ops absolutely sucks with game matching (about 1 in 5 games drops out, some nights much worse). There is an unacceptable level of premature game terminations / drop outs due to host gameplay. They really need to work on stability.

    - better clan management. Following on SOCOM, clans are game created identities, with an invitation system, and formal ranking system. This will lead to better gameplayer experience, more tactical game playing, etc. At this stage in the COD series the clan tag, is just 4 useless characters put together that anyone can copy.

    - improved character feature customization. Face, upper torso, lower torso, uniform, camo color, etc.

    - larger maps. I find due to the small maps, spanning really sucks on COD. Too many times I spawn and there’s someone standing practically in front of me.

    - take away unrealistic perks, like last stand.

    - fix unrealistic attacks, like knifing kills someone instantly even if they been shot 2 or 3 times with a rifle. If I shot anyone with a rifle at point blank range, I win.

    - allow players to choose the order of killstreak rewards they want to use. Right now, you are forced to use the last kill streak reward you won. But what if you want to save a chopper attack and use a UAV instead?

    - Have a larger variety of secondary weapons than in Black Ops. A lot of the secondary weapons are useless. Give us some sub machine guns.

    - Bring back extra clips as a perk, so we can actually use our own guns longer with this perk.

    - Take away quick scoping. If a person can’t shoot me with his markers on my head, then they don’t kill me. Reality agian folks.

      The additional mag perk is similar to scavenger(pro) so there's no need for that perk, plus with Scavenger you an resupply grenades.

    This is what they need to fix with the whole COD series, including MW3:

    - Use a closed mic system. Open mics suck, especially the feedback!
    - get dedicated servers for multiplayer. Local hosting results in too many game drops.
    - better clan management – by invite. This will lead to better gameplayer experience.
    - improved character customization. Face, upper torso, lower torso, uniform, camo color, etc.
    - larger maps. I find due to the small maps, spawning points really suck on COD.
    - take away unrealistic perks, like last stand.
    - fix unrealistic attacks, like knifing kills someone instantly even if they been shot 2 or 3 times with a rifle.

    If they add:

    Dynamic maps
    better graphics
    No Quick Scoping/drop shotting
    moar customization!!!
    and some high tech attachments (better thermal vision? explosive rounds? night vision?)

    i MAY buy it. lets hope they can do this.

  • pocker

    i hope they take away all glitches and hacks and no outside maps and map coop story mode and spec ops and make the best thing ever girls naw the best thing ever is zombies for madern warfare

  • Sneaky tuna

    As long as they dont take sleight of hand from snipers i really dont care what happens with the game

    • anon

      snipers are 1 hit kill, reletively no recoil and are fast, there is absolutely NO NEED to add quick scoping. It ruined mw2.

      • Joshua Oliver

        Except there are many times in Black Ops where you get hitmarkers with snipers. They need to get rid of the delay on snipers but leave it so that SoH pro doesnt make snipers scope in faster.

  • Erikondo

    I think qs scoping should stay sniping is hard enough as it is just try I dare you I'm positive you go negative

  • edeijwanjefkcdl

    I really think that MW2 was terrible, Black ops is much better and then battlefield (and every other shooter) reigns supreme. Not buying this

  • Ha1frican

    infinity ward isn't really makin this, the brand is there but 80% of those guys left and started respawn entertainment at EA

  • Erikondo

    In my opinion the best FPS games go
    Cod mw2
    Cod 4
    Battlefield 2
    Cod black ops
    waw
    Battlefield 1943
    But that's just me :)

  • Erikondo

    In my opinion the best FPS games go
    Mw2(sniping)
    Mw1
    Black oops
    Battlefields 2 and 1943
    Waw

  • asdfghjkl;

    If they put in a Machete as a weapon It'll automatically make it the best game ever :P

  • Jtt

    KEEP quickscoping. let the snipes have at least one thing bc black ops screwed us over!!

  • josh

    LOL i hope its just like MW1&2…moddable in teh extreame!!! Also I returned black ops for Rambow Six Vegas 2

  • Ps3 4 Lif3

    bring back quick scoping thats why i like mw2 over black ops. at least for private match they should.

  • ProKillerFIN

    My my. MW3? About time! I really hate the multiplayer in CoD nowadays. I mean, during CoD 4 it was original andnew with awesome graphics and gameplay. Story was intense aswell. MW2? Well, it was just a clone of the 4th one. Black Ops? Dont get me started. MW2 was fun for a month. After reaching 2nd prestige, i really thought there was no point playing this game. DLC costed 3rd of the games Retail price on Steam, no dedicated servers? WTF. Then, i heard Activision just put restrictions for IW. Well, we got a bad game. Thanks. Seriously, CoD is fun, but Battlefield 3 is going to eat this MoFo alive and leave it to bleed out in pain. That what EA is gonna do to Activision. They gpt the founders of Infinity Ward who formed Respawn Entertainment. Activision quitted Guitar Hero and DJ Hero! Both were awesome. Who's next? Call of Duty?

  • John Reyon

    We want quickscoping this time.
    MW2 is still fun because of it!

    The new IW team is going to have a hard time developing MW3 cuz your basically just decorating Cod4 to look like its badass.. it’s not really.
