Modern Warfare 3 to Feature Bigger Story

While still unannounced, sources who have seen the game in action tell Kotaku that the next Call of Duty will be a Modern Warfare 3 that pushes the bar on what people have come to expect from the series. And it hits this fall. (Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

I don't see it being that much bigger
Dart89  +   1473d ago
I wonder if by longer they mean 30 more seconds added to the story.
rabidpancakeburglar  +   1473d ago
No way, it will almost certainly be at least 2 minutes
awiseman  +   1473d ago
That would mean bring the total single player length to...31 seconds in all.. NICE!

30 seconds more aiming your gun or knife in slow motion at the final bad guy :D

Way I see it, all these articles on next CoD being bigger is just an attempt to grab attention from BF3. It wont be any longer of course, they lied through and through about Black Ops why would they stop now?

Ugh, just do away with the story all together. Nobody plays Call of Duty games for the story. I'd rather have an extra 20+ maps (in addition to the 15-20 it will probably include even if it did have a campaign) making it like 40+ maps (well, maybe not that much now that I think about it) and an extra 20 weapons or so.

And have them spend the time on multiplayer to make sure it's balanced, functional (glitch/bug/connection issue free) and to make sure the maps don't suck.

That's what I think they should do with what they have, since they have no freaking plans to change their engine or do any major upgrades, so they should at least jam that sh** full of content and make it work properly.

I know I'm not alone here...

Black Ops story was amazingly stupid/rambling/all over the place.. just kept setting up scenarios to blow things up. The guys interrogating you yet he knows everything..

Its long, but the bad type of long. MW when you jumped on the boat, now that was a good/action movie/story.

And its so hard to watch the game pan out due to the engine being so terrible. The lip sync is bad, the visuals are lacking, the animation is mediocre...

Am I alone?

the last decent cod single player was WAW. it was challenging on veteran. it was fairly long in gameplay. and the story was pretty good.

id say call of duty 2 (not MW2) on veteran was the most difficult and gripping single player. my fave 1.
although cod4's was a master piece it was too easy on vet.

So much hype around this game. I will not fall into it XO. Don't need to be disappointed again.
Fishy Fingers  +   1473d ago
Great, I actually enjoy the COD (specifically MW) campaigns so the bigger the better for me.
Blacktric  +   1473d ago
Agreed. I wish they weren't too short though.
Fishy Fingers  +   1473d ago
Me too, but it does allow for a constant spectical, rather than just sticking in a load of 'filler'.
Kingdom Come  +   1473d ago
The Modern Warfare Storylines are quite good, Infinity Ward were brilliant designers of characters and were capable of creating engaging plotlines and characteristics, however, Black Ops' story was just recycled elements of films...

I enjoyed CoD MW series as well. The campaings were fantastic and looking very much forward to spec ops!
Shackdaddy836  +   1473d ago
I liked MW1's story but I have to disagree on Blops and MW2. If you look carefully, you will see a massive amount of holes in each story.

"Modern Warfare 3 to Feature Bigger Story"

In other words, they'll copy off MORE Films!

Or that could be seen as paying homage as the subject matter is similar and the movie is incredibly well known and respected.
rookeagle  +   1473d ago
I have no problem playing movies :D fun <3
chazjamie  +   1473d ago
I do, because they only 2 hours like most of the campaigns

More story isn't what's needed. A good story told well is.
More crap is just...well...more crap.

It's that simple.
Otheros00  +   1473d ago
They said "bigger" not longer. To all the idiots that keep buying cod, you are killing originality and quality.
DiLeCtioN  +   1473d ago
Even though I tend to complain about the multiplayer side of things, however I feel that the single player campaigns were actually interesting.

MW1 my favourite part was the sniper mission with the scottish guy think his name was Price.

As for MW2 the suplex on the car In Brazil,and the introduction and death of Ghost. Although the story was short I still felt it was a decent play

*Facepalm* when are you people going to get over the fact that CoD hit on your mom and drowned your puppy?? Enough CoD hate please.
electricshadow  +   1473d ago
Because they think their opinions matter. I don't get that if you hate CoD, why are you even commenting on stories about it? I'm excited for this game, I'll rent it first, of course.
GunofthePatriots  +   1473d ago
because people like you will get butt hurt :)

@ GunofthePatriots

Explain how. Oh wait, you can't, because you have two bubbles. :)

Great list we should give him some more ideals so this crap serious can go down the tube even faster.
blink3020  +   1473d ago
I plan on getting BF3 as well as MW3. So many COD haters on this site (I'm guessing most of the haters just suck at COD therefore it's a crappy game).
theflyindutchman  +   1473d ago
yep its gonna be a epic winter, i hope bf3 and the new cod are really raising the bar on fps.
bf 3 looks gogeous and i really hope cod brings back spec ops, because that was sum horny shit!
btw fuck all that speculation on cod, acti didn't reveal anything yet.
so just hope bobby did give the creative studios some freedom
tunytung  +   1473d ago
Black ops is sucks
Every 3ark cod games suck
if Infinity Ward make cod game only,
CoD would not be sick game

They love crappy 3ark game, and buy the fucking game. so activision win.
Kids don't know why CoD come out every year.
Doesn't care who make the game.

the problem is greedy Activision and
Trashark. that's it.
I'm looking forward to CoD founder's next project.
Without west&zampela, cod is not cod anymore.
Just trashark & activision's crappy shit.
Don't blame former founder's job.
MW1 & MW2 were great.

REAL CoD franchise is MW only. only 2 game in this gen. they were best.

Just blame Trashark & three fuckjob
. Trashark three fuckjob make cod game sick.
they just copy infinity ward did. they are useless.

the problem is kids don't know.
esemce  +   1473d ago
Well any shorter and it would be a fucking demo, no future COD single player will match COD2 or 4.

wait...the old cods had a story?
ShAkKa  +   1473d ago
let's hope it is atleast an interesting story. MW2 while short it had some exiting moments, BO on the other hand was just boring from start to Finnish.
ninjagoat  +   1473d ago
Yeap add more to the single player give less maps in MP and ask more money for DLC to get more mp maps NO THANKS

don't care about thee story , im looking forword for the online
Raven_Nomad  +   1473d ago
The story certainly has been great since COD4. I kind of figured we were in for a longer, more quality campaign mode seeing as how what's left of IW and Sledgehammer games were teaming up just for the campaign. While Raven works strictly on the online parts.

I am just excited to see when this is going to be announced and when it's coming out so I can get my pre order down!
tisoyboy2  +   1473d ago
They are probably taking advantage of the extra 1gb of space that will be available on the dual layer from the new software format Microsoft created. That is good because everyone hates that the campaign is sacrificed to make room on the limited dual layer disc for multiplayer mode.

Well, Sledgehammer Games did want a 95+ score.

lulz Cod. YAWN.
CanadianTurtle  +   1472d ago
Wow you guys need to grow up. Quit bashing a game that didn't even come out. Theres no footage showing and people are still craping on it anyway.

Who knows, maybe it'll be good. It's going to be made by 3 development companies so you never know.
Jason143  +   1472d ago
<-will not buy. Black ops broke me. Cod is just a cash cow now and its to the point where pretty soon it will play itself. Broken game every year, auto aim, glitchs. They just want $$$. Ill try battlefield 3 but something has got to change. The biggest improvement they can make to cod is remove auto aim and snapping.

ok why people think this game is going to suck ?
