Infinity Ward Gets Help With Modern Warfare 3

call of duty modern warfare 3

We all know two things are certain every year: A Call of Duty game will come out in November and it will be the biggest game of the year. Well, you can rest easy because it looks like all is right with the world, as the L.A. Times is reporting that Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 will be released this November, as expected. Please be aware this isn’t confirmed by Activision yet.

What’s interesting about this is that the article states that Sledgehammer is working closely with Infinity Ward to get the title ready and Raven Software is helping out with the online multiplayer aspect. If true, this would destroy all the predictions that were made about Sledgehammer and Raven working on a separate Call of Duty title. I am rather glad to hear this, actually. I want Modern Warfare 3 before any other kind of Call of Duty series starts up.

What do you think? Would Activision go to such lengths to protect their cash cow? I think so. Are you excited about this or has the backlash still tainted you? Speak!

    If this game mimics COD MW2 with the inovations of BO (Such as theater (though it needs massive improvements) and Wager system) I will be more than pleased.

    I want to make sure the game has one thing though that BO didnt: Good BEHIND THE SCENES Multiplayer. In Black Ops there is a ton of latency issues and lag on XBL. MW2 holds its own way better than BO does. I dont even like playing BO Multiplayer anymore due to the lag that I can experience. Its not my system, its not my net. The game itself has some mechanics that make for some pretty noticeable lag. At least thats what my friends and I experience. Perhaps its just us, but the system on MW2′s Multiplayer seemed more stout and lag was not as bad.

    Black Ops theater mode was also a let down. Though cool, its far inferior to the Halo Theater system and I think it needs to take some more notes from them. Let me upload more than 6 files EVER. Let me have UPLOADED files and then files on my SYSTEM so I can have more than 6. Next, improve the theater and its controls. Fix that, and you are golden.

    I just wish Infinity Ward had gotten to stay on. Hope that MW3 is better than BO.

    I started at Call of Duty’s roots with Call of Duty 1 on the PC. It was probably THE game that made me a PC Gamer and introduced me to gaming in general. I loved CoD1 to bits at its times. Seriously: Carentan is the best map ever.
    But after CoD4, Call of Duty has just been a major dissapointment after each installment. I have WaW, MW2, and Black Ops, and I’d rather play CoD4 anyday. Whatever comes out from Infinity Ward, it has already lost my interest.
    Respawn Entertainment might get a second lookover when their first game comes out, but likely not impress since it’s a basic IW copy. If they go back to its far far back roots with CoD4 or CoD2, (but not WW2), I would be pleased.

    Besides, did you notice the games coming out in 2011? This is probably the year for gaming: Little Big Planet 2, Portal 2, Crysis 2, Deus Ex: Human Revolution, the Witcher 2, Guild Wars 2, Uncharted 3, Dragonage 2, and Arkham City!!
    But looking back, the entertainment business is kind of at a slump in innovation and creativity. Look at that list: each one is a sequel. ++ More than 90% of movies are sequels, remakes, or reimaginings.

    This series is dead to me. With all of the amazing games coming out this year, it will be even more of a reason to not buy it.

    I dunno if I’ll bother. My friends don’t play it anymore anyway so why bother getting it is what I wonder.

    While I like the idea of studio’s helping each other out I will have to agree with SK Beans so many good games this year and sadly this isn’t one I’ll be getting.

    Meh, I’m with Beans on this one. I’m sure I’ll give the campaign a try, but I’m not really interested in getting involved with a “brand-new that isn’t new at all” multiplayer game. I’m sure it will be great, but I’m really COD’d out.
