While there's a chance that developer Treyarch’s next project will be a Vietnam-based Call of Duty game, the next title from Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 developer Infinity Ward is still a mystery. However, if newly revealed info is to be believed, it appears that we can cross one game off the possibilities list: Modern Warfare 3?
Sources tell VG247 that IW is taking a break from the whole modern war thing in favor of something "completely new." How’s that for narrowing down the possibilities? Of course, this is about as far from official as you can get at this point, so remain skeptical until something more concrete comes along.
I'm still pulling for IW to return to World War II for one last hurrah, taking advantage of all their new tech, but I’m sure whatever they decide to do it will be something worth keeping an eye on. In all honesty, my money is on a war game set in the distant future. Can you say hover-board rail-shooting sequence? I can, and I just did.
