Modern Warfare 4 could be hitting shelves sooner rather than later according to Activision CEO Bobby Kotick.
According to GameSpot, Activision has already announced plans for another Call of Duty title, as Modern Warfare 3 posts the largest day-one shipments in gaming history.
In addition to this news, Activision is promising at least two more titles from Blizzard next year!
“As we focus on 2012, we have a strong product pipeline which features a minimum of two highly anticipated new titles from Blizzard Entertainment, including Diablo III, and a new Call of Duty game from Activision Publishing,” Activision CEO Bobby Kotick said in a statement accompanying the publisher’s quarterly report.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 is a first-person shooter video game, developed by Infinity Ward and Sledgehammer Games, with Raven Software having assisted in development. It is the third installment in the Modern Warfare series, a direct sequel to 2009’s Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, and the eighth Call of Duty installment.
You might remember similar discussions after the release of last year’s Black Ops, with Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 hinted at in Black Ops.
November 2012 Update: Has Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 4 been outed by Captain Price voice actor Bill Murray (the other one)? The voice actor said he’s going to the Activision studio this week for the next Call of Duty game, and since he only appears on the Modern Warfare series, that would be the Modern Warfare 3 sequel. Activision denied any of this, but Call of Duty is a yearly released franchise, so this seems like a shoe-in.
