The Next Call of Duty Might Actually be Modern Warfare 4!

There's a really strong reason to believe that Sledgehammer Games are working on a reboot of Infinity Ward's Modern Warfare franchise! (Call of Duty, PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

Does anyone else think that this type of game is on it's last legs?
TripleXuLtiMaTe  +   494d ago
Honestly, I do.
BiggCMan  +   494d ago
Not really. It is SLOWWWWWWLY getting less and less sales, but I mean very very slowly.

Ghosts is still a massive seller, and I would say it only sold less because it is actually a terrible game and people saw that.

If they can make the next game at least to the quality of anything before Ghosts or better, it should sell just as much.

A lot of the talk has gone away now, but it is definitely not on its last legs. Unfortunately we will still see the shooter phenomenon bleed into the new generation. But at least we are seeing new experiences like Destiny and Evolve out of it.

You have a point. Plus, with the new three year cycle I think Treyarch has much more time to expand their game even more, with more zombies, larger campaign, and better multiplayer (I believe Treyarch are the best developers for COD because their games are way better than Infinity Ward's).

I really don't. Why would it? What would replace it?I don't think Battlefield could. And titanfall 2 won't.
BiggCMan  +   494d ago
Battlefield is a much better game, and it sells ALMOST as much as Call of Duty. No reason to think it couldn't be the king of shooters soon. Many people already think it is, and it should be because they are very good.

At least CoD is playable on launch day unlike BF that still needs fixing several months after release.
Mikeyy  +   494d ago
Even with all the bugs, I'd take battlefield over COD anyday.

Cod simply refuses to innovate and should not be rewarded for that.

getting kills in BF is rewarding, cod it's just another kill...
OrangePowerz  +   494d ago
I must have missed all those innovations BF4 made, oh wait they didn't make any either. The last change BF had was destructible environments besides of that it is also still the same game since the first BF. I love and enjoy BF games, but they get too much credit for doing the same always as well while releasing a fundamentally broken game.

If you play either game against good players that are in an organised team it's rewarding to get kills and to win.

I think both games should be treated fairly and not having one slammed for not doing something new while the other game gets praised and nobody complains that they don't do anything new.
OrangePowerz  +   494d ago
Not really, even the lower sales of Ghosts is still a large amount.

I've been saying this ever since it was announced that Sledgehammer Games was going to be making the next Call of Duty. It is going to be Modern Warfare 4, but it will be a reboot of Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare. Thus, the 4's. Also, with this being their first CoD game they are making by themselves, it would make since to do a reboot of a classic that everybody enjoyed.
csreynolds  +   494d ago
I wouldn't complain about a good (emphasis on GOOD) reboot of CoD 4 - it was the best one. However, I don't think that's what Sledgehammer is developing. Still, I'm happy to be wrong. I feel they'd have to do SOMETHING new with it though to dodge the fire from the "I don't want remasters" crew.

From what I've seen so far, evidence is leaning towards something futuristic: http://www.callofdutyforeve...

I think suggesting "modern" isn't likely if you choose to believe that guy Drift0r. If that media he saw is to be believed, then it futuristic. A modern game that's futuristic? I can't see that at all tbh.

I was hoping for Black OPS 3. Oh well, guess I'll skip another Call of Duty.
TripleXuLtiMaTe  +   494d ago
It's a 3 year cycle now. Black Ops 3 (or whatever game it will be) is going to happen in 2015, since that's when Treyarch will release a game. It goes like this now: Infinity Ward, SHGames, Treyarch, Infinity Ward, SHGames, Treyarch... Black Ops belongs to Treyarch and they're developing next year's Call of Duty.

I really hope Sledgehammer doesn't milk Modern Warfare too far that it turns to shit, remember the "You either die a hero, or live long enough to see yourself become the villain" line? (Ilikethatmoviedonotjudgeme)
Mikeyy  +   494d ago
What are you talking about? Mw3 already took a huge dump on the series and was the start of its downfall.

Now they need to start copying BF or go extinct. 6vs6 200sqft maps ain't gonna cut it with next gen. You should demand more.
csreynolds  +   494d ago
This is a good catch. Could be true; given Sledgehammer co-developed MW3, it'd make sense that they forward the series with MW4.

Frankly, I'm just happy that it'll be next-gen first, and that PlayStation is the lead development platform (yes, I'm a PS4 owner, yes, this is a selfish point. Not sorry :-D). From my experience, CoD games played so much smoother on Xbox 360 than they did the PS3.

Guys. Think about it. Ghosts is a modern warfare style game. Activision isn't going to put out Modern Warfare next. No way I believe that.
