It wouldn't come as any huge shock to learn that Infinity Ward is currently working on another Modern Warfare installment. But will it actually be called "Modern Warfare?" Maybe not.
Despite the fact that it isn't official just yet, it seems some new leaked details have helped to confirm that the next CoD iteration might be dubbed "Call of Duty 2013" and take place within the Modern Warfare story arc.
According to an "inside source," Activision has been recording voice work for the new project. The main character is "a battle hardened veteran in his mid-thirties with a nihilistic point of view;" his code name is "Ben Burke" and here are a few of his lines:
"Reminds you of Phuket, doesn’t it? Only this time the dust gives you cancer… OK, park yourself and get ready. When this thing kicks off, put a hole in anything that moves."
"This is Sentinel Zero One, successful crypto change on C2 net break, requesting immediate update of blue force picture and status of artillery, over. I have you broken and unreadable, I say again, requesting updates to friendly positions and status of arty support. Do you read, over?"
"We’ve got KVA on the move! They’re going to strongpoint the main gate, ETA two mikes! We’re providing support for our heavy rollers! Ready up and let’s move!"
So you get the picture. Maybe it is time for a name change in the series…and maybe we're also looking at the first CoD to go next-gen for at least one new piece of hardware. If it's slated to arrive in November like recent entries, it's likely the new Xbox or PlayStation could be available… Of course, there's zero chance that CoD won't also be made for the current consoles; can't miss that massive userbase.
