When a game gets this big, there's one term that quickly springs to life: "spin-off." Maybe we should point you in the direction of DJ Hero and Band Hero …
By now, those of you who have been playing Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 are quite familiar with the character "Ghost," although you might not know he's voiced by Craig Fairbrass. That's an important name, because he's the guy who let it slip that Infinity Ward is actually considering an MW2 spin-off featuring Ghost. According to That VideoGame Blog , Fairbrass said as much at the massive sequel's launch event in the UK:
"I did in the last game a voice for a character called Gaz and in this game I’m now voicing a guy called Ghost, who now just got a spin-off comic of his own and they’re talking about another little game to go with it, so I’m quite excited about it. It’s grown and grown and grown."
He was also asked why Ghost has become such a popular character and Fairbrass replied, "I don't know. It's the whole thign I suppose of not knowing who he is. He's like the head of the SAS…I'm just so thrilled to be a part of it; I mean it just gets bigger and bigger each year." Well, provided Infinity Ward is at the helm, we figure a spin-off game featuring Ghost could be fairly kick-ass but who knows? Perhaps it's best to issue a downloadable title of some kind, but that would certainly gimp the quality Modern Warfare fans are used to, right? We'll have to keep an eye on this.
