It looks like the world is set for another Modern Warfare 4 game. After the mixed reaction to MW3, some gamers had wondered whether Activision may take the series in a different direction after Treyarch finishes up with Black Ops 2, but some recent information has seemingly confirmed that Infinity Ward will once again be behind the helms for the fourth entry in the MW series.
It’s no secret that Modern Warfare generally features some very well known voice actors in the games, and one of the instantly recognizable voices has to be Captain Price, who is played by English actor Billy Murray.
He has apparently confirmed to a fan that Modern Warfare 4 is in development by Infinity Ward and that he will be meeting Activision and the developer on Monday 5th November to discuss his new voice parts in the game – and a lot more too we suspect once Activision hears about the leak.
The information apparently let slip on an airplane, as Bill Murray bumped into a fan, who also happened to be editor of the ThisisXbox website. A photo of the two men together can be seen on the site as evidence and Infinity Ward has already wasted no time in trying to distance themselves from the story, stating that it is pure speculation only.
We have a feeling that Infinity Ward may just be covering their tracks as it was already highly likely that Activision would keep churning out a new Modern Warfare game anyway. Perhaps they are trying to pull a Rockstar on us and deny any news on the game until the last minute, in order to build up further hype and anticipation.
They may also see the news leaking as a negative, since everyone has only just played MW3 and if they didn’t like it, they’ll be wondering whether it’s a good move for Activision to bring out Modern Warfare 4 already – nobody likes bad PR at the end of the day.
From our point of view though, what is the big deal if the news is already out in the open about MW4? Gamers are still going to flock to the shops and pick this up at the first opportunity, so if anything Activision should embrace the current buzz around the game and make everyone even happier with a screenshot, rather than push to deny at the first opportunity.
Are you happy that Modern Warfare 4 appears to have been confirmed? If so, let us know what changes you would like to see in the next game as it’s clear that it didn’t please everyone.
