It appears that many Call of Duty fans who were optimistic in seeing Modern Warfare 4 early will have to wait until Activision gives the developers the proper green light to lift the veil of secrecy surrounding Modern Warfare 4.
Modern Warfare 4 should be a memorable game this year because it will be the last Call of Duty game (probably) to release for the current generation of consoles, the PlayStation 3 and the Xbox 360, seeing as how their successors are waiting to take the center stage in the coming year.
Modern Warfare 4 had a teaser site up a few days ago called, unexpectedreveal.com, which shockingly (I am trying my best to say this sarcastically) turned out to be fake since it was registered to an individual with a gmail account. While the source code did mention some specific keyword such as Sledgehammer games, Activision and Neversoft, who are all major components of this year’s Call of Duty title it was too good to be true.
ModernWarfare4Beta.com had surfaced earlier this month too but of course that was also fake and gave the promise of beta access to the game which of course was a false promise. I am surprised that the URL of the site wasn’t a dead giveaway to the people clicking away at it. And a simple “WHOIS” shows the identity of the owner of the site.
The reason for so much optimism that this year title would be because the voice actor of Captain Price, Billy Murray, did confirm that he is hard at work on a new Call of Duty and seeing the current pattern of the original Modern Warfare to now has been predictable.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare – 2007
Call of Duty: World at War – 2008
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 – 2009
Call of Duty: Black Ops – 2010
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 – 2011
Call of Duty Black Ops 2 – 2012
So I hope you can see the pattern as I do.
For now all we can do is wait patiently for an official reveal from the people at Activision and see what the future holds for the series.
