I think MW4 will be a reboot. The Modern Warfare trilogy kind of ended. It would be hard to continue. I see it being a new story which I welcome. COD may not be innovative but they do create a decent,fun to play story that is like an action film

This is what I was thinking too. The modern warfare series would continue being the title for the current era themed games. I could see it bringing in new characters, or maybe be a side story to existing characters.

COD isn't going away anytime soon. Especially with the start of a new console generation.

EDIT: I was just thinking, how far would they go with MW numbers? I could see 5, but 6, 7, or 8? Probably not. I could see MW4 being the last MW game of this current console gen and then a new modern title starting on the next gen.

That could be but I think they will drop it. The last COD numbered "4" was COD4.

I think "MW4" will keep the MW name but will probably use another subtitle.

For example: "Call of Duty Modern Warfare: Insurrection"

Something like that.

@farcry that does bring up a good point. I could see some people getting confused between Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 4.

I could see your Insurrection example working for a side story or something. But then a subtitle to a subtitle seems too much.

When will they just start using years in COD titles?

Call of Duty '13, '14, etc

Unless they completely overhaul the Engine/Graphics and general feel of the series yes.

call of duty is fun but the last one i bought was modern warfare 2.

I would honestly feel fine buying new call of duty games if they priced them at $20.00 a pop. Brand new.

Don't you think that is too low? Call Of Duty games offer a lot in terms of replay-value. But the thing is they are poorly implemented.

NastyLeftHook02827d ago

well no i dont. if they re-use the same engine all of the time i think 20 bucks is fine.

jimbobwahey2827d ago


Any sequel to any game is reusing the same engine. Why should they lower the price of COD games just because they reuse the engine, when every other developer out there does as well?

It's standard industry practice. Create engine, release game, slightly tweak/optimize engine, release game, slightly tweak/optimize engine, release game etc.

This is what the developers of COD and every single franchise do, so why is it only bad when COD games do it, but every other series gets a free pass?

Game Engines doesn't play a big role in making a game any better. If you clear your mind, you know that Call Of Duty: Black Ops 2 is different than Call Of Duty 4: Modern Warfare. I am not here to defend Call Of Duty[since I hate all of them], but facts are facts.
