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?
