5 things Modern Warfare 4 must do in order to stay fresh

"So, the rumors are already beginning to ring true; another Modern Warfare title is coming. I can’t say I’m surprised, given how well the franchise continues to sell, with each entry in the series repeatedly breaking the sales record established by the last.

Nobody can deny that the franchise has already become stale in recent years, but I also think I can speak for many when I say that Black Ops II has breathed some new life into the series, and it has introduced gameplay and storytelling elements that can be expanded upon in future installments.

With that said, here are five things that whoever’s in charge of Modern Warfare 4, be it Neversoft, Infinity Ward, Raven, or whoever, should keep in mind when creating the game so that they continue the innovation that Black Ops II has sparked and keep the franchise fresh." (Michael Urban, OnlySP.com) (Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 4, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

Guess you haven't played Black Ops II. Honestly, it really feels like the true successor to CoD4. Treyarch did a phenomenal job.

World at War was the last one I really enjoyed.
They really need to try something new, but how can they when the super scripted singleplayer, and ADD multiplayer are making them so much money?

1 thing Activision must do to keep Call of Duty fresh:

NOT release one every year.

Fixed.

If you put World at War, Black Ops 1 and Black Ops 2 in your machine, you can tell that they are different.

If you put MW1, MW2, MW3 or "MW4" in, you would be hard pressed to notice any differences. The MW series is the "true copy and paste" part of COD. Sure Treyarch titles are still COD at heart, but at least maps, guns, HUD, etc. is different.

It really doesn't matter what they do... They're gonna stay in the modern setting which CoD fanboys already complained about and it will probably be another MW2 clone, but fanboy CoD review sites, IGN and KOTAKU, already have a 9/10 sitting and waiting to hit send button, no matter how garbage it is...

Unless COD upgrades to a knew engine there's very little Activision can do that hasn't been done already to keep COD fresh but even so MW3 proved that they can pretty much copy and paste the same game and people will still line up to buy it.

Hmm
How about some dedicated servers?

Out-do Treyarch. Sorry IW, but after Black Ops II you've got some serious work to do...
