‘Modern Warfare 3′ coming from Sledgehammer not IW

The next Call of Duty may not be a Modern Warfare title but it will be as close as legally possible. One thing that is not up in the air however, is who will be developing the next 'Modern Warfare' be it Modern Warfare 3 or not, Sledgehammer Games recently posted a job listing where the company is looking for a community manager for the next Call of Duty Game. With the ousting of the Modern Warfare creators there has been no clarification made as to if the developers in place will be pushing forward with the series or even if it is legal for them to do so.

Many things have been rumored already about the next game who it will come from seems to be in place. Will it follow the Call of Duty Modern Warfare story? That remains to be seen. Some recent speculation has hinted to the possibility of a Modern Warfare title telling the story of Ghost in a prequel to Modern Warfare 1.

What i heard was that Sledgehammer was going to do an MMO/RPG-ish type COD. I think IW is still going to be doing mw3. Too early to speculate.

Here is what I read...

http://www.joystiq.com/2011/01/20/re...3-with-sledge/

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare publisher Activision has repeatedly stated that Infinity Ward is doing fine since heads Vince Zampella and Jason West were ousted from the company early last year. A report on the LA Times' Company Town blog, however, tells a different story -- according to the piece, both Sledgehammer Games and Raven Software have been tasked with helping develop the next, still unannounced Modern Warfare title, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3.

"People familiar with the situation" claim that Sledgehammer is working with the remaining staff at Infinity Ward on developing the game's single player campaign, while Singularity developer Raven Software is in charge of bringing up the multiplayer side of things. The sources also contend that, like past Call of Duty titles, MW3 is expected to ship this November. Additionally, Sledgehammer is said to have halted production on its own spinoff Call of Duty title in order to help IW out. Representatives at Activision had yet to respond to a request for comment as of publishing.

Wally, I've read the same article. I don't think it's true however. It started off on one page as a perhaps and has grown into; it will be. But sometimes, change is good for game perhaps? Different ideas etc.

And for DG: Perhaps it's the platform you're playing it on? The PS3 is getting ready to yank COD off of it.

Legal Trouble for PS3 Call of Duty: Black Ops?
Service Rep: We can shut down CoD if we choose

HOUSTON - Players have made their voices heard on plenty of issues concerning Call of Duty: Black Ops for the PlayStation 3, but one exchange between a player and a customer service representative has lit a firestorm.

We reported the concerns of Black Ops players last year , shortly following its November release. Many said their consoles were freezing up during online-play sessions over the PlayStation Network. Players took to Activision's online forums to get a response from the publisher and the game's developer, Treyarch.

Service Rep Says Activision Can Shut Down Black Ops if Need Be

Online journalist and blogger Jason Koblovsky posted a written exchange between himself and a customer service representative. After forwarding his concerns regarding the game, the rep. stated he had no solutions to his problems and then said Activision reserves the right to take Black Ops off the PlayStation Network if it so chooses - a solution that would not be so off-base given the numerous reports of technical issues surrounding the game.

The representative offered the following alternatives, according to the written exchange:

-- Send the game back to Activision and receive a repackaged game to deliver to a retailer
-- Swap the game for an identical version on another gaming platform (XBOX 360, PC)
-- Swap the game for another Activision title of equal or lesser value

Koblovsky, in response, said if Activision does pull the service, the game publisher can expect the following to occur:

-- He would choose option 1 and never purchase an Activision title in the future
-- Legal repercussions from the PlayStation Network
-- He would forward the exchange to several Canadian consumer advocates.

nope, Chief, I have it for 360.

its just the same old crap, re-skinned and sent back out. you would think after 4 years they would have added new game modes at least.

also p2p connections are really holding all console shooters back.

yeah Bass, I know. The devs came out and said something along the lines of having more than 5 people in a game should require dedicated servers.

regardless Ill still get homefront on PC over console
