We have some interesting rumors to share with you now regarding Infinity Ward’s next Call of Duty game. We know that this is very likely to be Modern Warfare 4, but some new information has teased that the game could actually be coming out on next-gen consoles, as well as the Xbox 360, PS3 and PC.
Right now, there seems to be a great deal of uncertainty on whether game developers will be able to build their next games so that they are ‘future proof’ with the likes of the Xbox 720 and PS3. Infinity Ward may be the first to answer that question indefinitely, as some evidence uncovered on an Infinity Ward Engineer’s resume suggests that Modern Warfare 4 is going to be developed for next-gen as well.
The information on the resume here appears to have been deleted, but Kotaku claims that it originally listed ‘TBA’ as a platform alongside the Xbox 360 and PS3. Some further info from the resume apparently confirms that PC owners are also due to get DirectX11 support as well.
Did you imagine that such a scenario would be possible? – ie, Modern Warfare 4 coming on on current gen consoles and future systems from Sony and Microsoft? We would imagine that being a ton of effort for Infinity Ward to pull off, unless the next-gen hardware architecture is very similar to what they are already used to working with.
It will also give those who don’t want to splash out on next-gen consoles straight away, the chance to still pick up their favorite FPS franchise, albeit with toned down graphics from the enhanced next-gen version. It’s early days yet, but we wonder what other developers are also planning to bring their next games to current, as well as next-gen systems.
Let us know your thoughts on this and whether you can see it happening. You’ll pick up Modern Warfare 4 on next-gen right?
