It’s highly-speculated that the next Call of Duty game will be called Modern Warfare 4, but if this video by YouTube member Drift0r is to be believed, not only will it ditch the Modern Warfare branding, but it will be for next-gen consoles only, too!
According to Drift0r, the info he has below comes from someone who works “within the Call of Duty” machine at Activision. Not only that, but he even claims he’s running the info since he trusts this anonymous person “with his life.”
Well, if it’s good enough for his life, we can risk running it as a rumor now, no? Keep in mind though, what’s revealed below is a rumor and some of it might be too far-fetched to be believed.
Supposedly, the next Call of Duty game will be called Call of Duty: Ghosts, will be set in the future but will use current generation weaponry. The game is alleged to be revealed this coming May 1 or somewhere near the start of May and one of the big features of it will be “dynamic” loading screens. Instead of seeing a standard loading image, players will be able to “rappel into the map” while it’s loading.
Give the video a watch for the other “details.”
Again, we’re stressing that the details here are all RUMORS and should be treated as such. One of the biggest question marks here is that the claims that this is for next-gen only. Yep, supposedly, Call of Duty: Ghosts will only be available for the PS4 and the Xbox 720.
While I have no doubt that a new Call of Duty game will come to next-gen platforms, I find it hard to believe that someone like Activision would alienate the massive current-gen user base. There is chance that Activision could be developing two Call of Duty games, one for current-gen and one for next-gen. I mean, they obviously have the manpower and studios to pull it off.
We’ve reached out to Activision for an official statement regarding this and will update the story once they do.
So, are any of the stuff in the video believable for you guys? Sound off in the comments and let us know what you think.
