It is rare to see an entry into a AAA series that somehow fails to deliver throughout its existence. Most developers simply know that every new entry needs to raise the bar lest the competition steal the show. However, Modern Warfare is a title that is steeped in combat in every single aspect, from the online combat to the slow disintegration of Infinity Ward, the future of that particular franchise has always been in question. Taking into consideration Activision's history with the franchise, and how hard they've tried to prove that they can continue to make millions without Vince Zampella, Jason West, and even Grant Collier, for that matter. It's easy to assume that they'll be pouring every single resource into trying to make this title game of the year. I just don't see how that's really possible.
