Rumour: Next year's Call of Duty is Modern Warfare 4

According to alleged leaks from a voice actor working on the project, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 4 is the next entry in the massively popular franchise.

This post could contain spoilers below, at the moment everything is just a rumour.

Siliconera has an anonymous source that spoke to them regarding next year's title. Apparently, the game's voice acting is already being recorded in Los Angeles, and that it continues the Modern Warfare storyline.

The main character will be "a battle hardened veteran in his mid-thirties with a nihilistic point of view", currently called Ben Burke. The source also mentioned a flashback scene set in Somalia featuring Kevin McKidd's character John 'Soap' MacTavish.

A lines of dialogue apparently spoken by the Burke character were supplied:

"Reminds you of Phuket, doesn't it? Only this time the dust gives you cancer? OK, park yourself and get ready. When this thing kicks off, put a hole in anything that moves."

"This is Sentinel Zero One, successful crypto change on C2 net break, requesting immediate update of blue force picture and status of artillery, over. I have you broken and unreadable, I say again, requesting updates to friendly positions and status of arty support. Do you read, over?"

"We've got KVA on the move! They're going to strongpoint the main gate, ETA two mikes! We're providing support for our heavy rollers! Ready up and let?s move!"

"Goliath, this is Sentinel Zero One! We have enemy armor at the gate, hundred meters north of our position! Requesting close-air grid mark three-one-six!"

The source is said to be the same one that provided Siliconera with early Sleeping Dogs details, that later turned out to be correct, though all the information supplied has not been confirmed.

So this is the second time Modern Warfare 4 has been mentioned in as many months. Could this turn out to be the worst kept secret of the year? What do you think of the Modern Warfare series returning for a fourth entry?

I wouldn't mind another world at war but any COD game is good cant complain at that. As long as they keep up the good work im sure it will do well like all the others.

Much like real war, these games never will cease. I don't personally see the allure of buying a new one every year. I don't play many FPS 'reality' games; prefer the anonymity of fantasy shooters, like 'KillZone 2' or a 'Bioshock'. We get enough of the imperialist nonsense shoved down our throats on the News media as it is - don't want to play it as well.

The only surprise that could come from the CoD franchise now is if Activision announced dedicated servers

I thought they'd wrapped the story up with number 3, especially as Soap is dead. They should move on with a different storyline now

Isn't the FIFA series now becoming a hideous mess of glitches, especially with the online side of things? Even consumer shows like BBC's Watchdog have it on each year!

Game will have such features such as 'Shooting at people.' and the shortest campaign yet. Lasting an impressive 10 minutes the story will sadden, enrage and confuse you.

This is the most shocking news of the year. Even if Valve announced Half Life 3 for a 2013 release it wouldn't even come close to this. (Can you sense the sarcasm)

The only person i think that is left is Price, so they will probs end up killing him off too. I generally do enjoy the COD single players but i agree that they should have rounded it off with MW3. Maybe take up another setting, Wouldn't complain with a WW2/Nam game.

I wouldn't mind but they are all the same game with a different setting. Battlefield beats CoD every time for me. The only thing I would add to these games is gibs.

No surprise really. I hope they can bring something new to it. I heard good things about Blops2 so maybe IW can go in the same direction.
