Rumor: 'Modern Warfare 4' leaked, features photo real visual effects

StickSkills writes, "Over the years we've seen a few different studios work on the Call of Duty franchise. While Treyarch and Infinity Ward come to mind, one of the other main studios has been Sledgehammer Games. While Call of Duty: Ghosts has been confirmed as this year's title, it appears that Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 4 will be releasing in 2014." (Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 4, PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

Update It is unknown if this is in reference to in-game visuals or commercial visuals, as the person in question has done work on both.

"photo real visual effects" COD, lol
die_fiend  +   358d ago
Lol. Photorealistic like that dog right? Ya know, the one they said was next gen but looked absolutely appalling. Can u believe they're calling an engine made in 1999 next-gen? I can, look at Bobby's smile
HammadTheBeast  +   358d ago
It's sad hat the dog had completely flat textures. They couldn't even make proper hairs on him.

Actually, have you played Dead To Rights: Retribution? Playing as the dog in that game was pretty bad ass.
Insanely underrated game.

Only in a COD game would a fish moving out of the way be classed as next gen console technology :( Even tho this was seen back on Mario 64.

Resident Evil 2's cutscenes are more photo realistic than this. Goldeneye's weapons in-game were more photo realistic than this. Nothing special here.
GraveLord  +   357d ago
You're talking Call of Duty Ghosts, this article is about Modern Warfare 4, something we have no idea what it could be. There's skepticism then there's flat-out trolling. You fall under the latter.

Looks decent for this gen. Not horrible, but definitely not great.

They could win everybody back if they just opened up the gameplay and added some variety and a few "other genre" elements and it would feel like a whole new game.

Pretty sure that is never going to happen though.
BattleTorn  +   358d ago
They simply need to evolve the gameplay to what others shooters (ieHomefront) are doing. Add vehicles!

But they won't because that would have them compared to BF.

And COD once has vehicles too, back in W@W
irepbtown  +   358d ago
Cod isn't about vehicles, I got Battlefield 2/3 and soon 4 for that.

COD needs to improve the graphics, make it on par with its competitors (BF4 in this case). COD is about Run'n'Gun, not much else to it. That's where the fun is, you and a few friends trying to get as many kills as possible. No teamwork is needed, that's what I like about COD. I'm positive that's why millions of people buy it day one.

Make it like MW2 with actual next gen graphics and I'll be happy.
RioKing  +   358d ago
^This. COD & BF are two separate military fps..let them have their differences so people can choose what appeals to them the most.
ZombieKiller  +   357d ago
@rusted man

I agree Dead to Rights was the shit. The difference here is that they are going to PRETEND its epic. They'll do something that's medeocre and treat it like the best most innovative feature ever....that they created. When I saw the fish AI video, I gave the weirdest look and was like "is he serious?!"

Just goes to show what kind of sheep they take their fans for.
ala_767  +   358d ago

Remember that Sledgehammer games still exists. I wouldn't be surprised if Activision started releasing these games sub-annually. As in two CoD games a year.
EPiCDiNGO  +   358d ago
I would actually love to see a old style shooter like Cod 2 or World at War if treyarch do a game next year.
stevehyphen  +   357d ago
Treyarch doesn't deserve the number of sales their games get. Wait, what am I saying? Look at the massive amount of original games they've made. Not.

The only game I ever enjoyed by them was Die By The Sword. That game was not great, but it was funny as *bleep.*
ZombieKiller  +   357d ago
@ala -I agree but Rick Higgity says it well. Knowing Activision, this would come as no surprise if they released a sub annual COD game. They already do it with DLC. Half the game now at launch, the 2nd half through DLC till the next one.

Freaking next game comes out seriously less than 2 months after the last map pack from the last game.

ZombieKiller  +   357d ago
The only "weird stuff" here is you not realizing COD is NOT changing for the better. The graphics were a bit outdated but that wasn't the issues with this game.

Sure graphics are pretty, this gen and last but that doesn't fix short development time, bad lag, non dedicated servers, bad map and spawn design and just an all around shitty, untested product. Not only did the last game in the series crash 2 of my ps3s (that I ironically bought for OTHER games) but even on Xbox does not work right. 3 map packs later and the community videos still say error all over. It still freezes, glitches and bugs out on me, for a game that's not even that good. Its selling on the name at this point.....because it sure as hell isn't the quality.

So the only thing "weird" here is that you fail to realize like the rest of the casuals out there, that they will slap a fresh coat of paint on this game EVEN IN THE TURN OF GENERATIONS, and call it new, but it won't fix anything that is wrong with this underdeveloped series or the bugs and glitches that constantly plague it.
miDnIghtEr20C_SfF  +   357d ago
Well good thing it's a new generation and there will be dedicated servers now for your lag problem huh.
GraveLord  +   358d ago
What else does your crystal ball tell you?
ZombieKiller  +   357d ago
@midnight....actually IW already said this game won't have dedicated servers. Yeah next gen will go dedicated for the most part, but COD won't. Not to mention what about all the other problems?

Your comment didn't work. Sorry.

Photo real VFX is what all VFX artist strive for, he is probably referring to the explosions with more dynamic smoke. Or in COD's case probably loads of photos of smoke layered over each other.

BISHOP-BRASIL  +   358d ago
Spend a million or two more on a new engine, more money and time for your devs to learn and write new code, new assets, new everything... Is it me or this simply don't sound like Activision? Specially if they'll still sell the same 60 dollars game that will feel generic and sell like hot cakes anyway.

Their problems are much deeper than just an engine and Activision mindset, the game itself is not good enough.
Fireseed  +   358d ago
So they're basing features off of a VFX artists portfolio header letter... Alright that's pretty stupid. Most artists will throw words like that into their letters cause it catches the eyes of the HR department who usually reads them. Hell even I throw in "Anatomically correct character sculpting" even though it's just a buzz word.

Now if they mean photo real like this then I will look towards Call of Duty in the future.

http://www.youtube.com/watc...

If PS4 and Xbox one can do these graphics then I will be blown away like the rest of us. It would be a dream come true if these systems can do this. So far games like Deep Down, Final Fantasy 15, and Kingdom Hearts 3,Quantic Dream tech demo are the best use of graphics I have ever seen on any console. If Call of Duty Modern Warfare 4 can top those games with these graphics, then prepare to be blown away again by Call of Duty. This could renew people's faith to the Call of Duty franchise, if they also try new things too, not just the graphics.

KH3 doesnt "LOOK" impressive graphically. I wouldn't be putting that game up there as a graphics staple.

I think they should release a next gen Modern Warfare, but make it online only. New visuals, gameplay, fxs, etc to all the MW1, 2, and 3 classic maps.

stevehyphen  +   357d ago
Remember when first person shooters had level editors? Anyone could make a map, but getting people to play it meant it had to be good.

What happened to certain maps being synonymous with their games? 2fort, cpm1a, pro-tourney6, dm_sacred, de_dust2 examples

ZeroX9876  +   358d ago
I'm not trying to defend cod, but I'm almost 100% sure the reason were getting the same freaking engine again is because activision, or should I say kotick, wants to be on this gen PLUS next gen at the same time to lock in more income. Call of duty will go on decline if they keep it like this all the time, since the original dev behind the concept left 3 games ago.... sorry 4 with ghost.

I'm guessing they're going to change engine next title after ghost, but battlefield 4 will probably take a lot of those players in after people realizes that they changed for next gen to get better performing games, but got the same old game once again.
irokster  +   358d ago
I've been hearing "COD will be on the decline" for about 3 years now. No signs point to a decline anytime soon. Also, BF taking players away from COD? LMAO that game is a piece of crap too, graphics arent everything.
ZeroX9876  +   357d ago
battlefield graphics?

the gameplay, the recoil and feel of the guns, the satisfaction when you get someone from far away headshot with your sniper, the no quick scoping.... this game is so different in so many ways. true that I didn't point that out in my first comment though.

yeah COD probably won't be on decline right away, I forgot that there's people that doesn't know how to play something else than run-randomly and shoot.

rare to see someone defends cod on this site. well good luck with the fish AI, I'll be playing BF4 on my PC.

These games always sort of leak. It's definitely wilful on the part of publishers and whatnot though. It's a good way to conjure hype by making us feel like we're in on some top secret brand new development. However, as usual, it'll just be a CoD game again.
