Voice of Captain Price confirms MW4 under development at studio Infinity Ward, carries on story from the previous games.
[Update]: Infinity Ward has updated its official Twitter feed with the following statement regarding the news story, below. "Interesting news today, but it’s not true," said Infinity Ward reps. "We’ve not talked with any voice actors, so all news is speculation."
The next chapter in the Call of Duty franchise, Black Ops II, isn't out until November 13th, but already another game in the series is being readied. Modern Warfare 4 is in the works, at least if voice actor Bill Murray is to be believed.
The actor, who has played Captain Price in the previous two games in the series, told This is Xbox that he is set to reprise his role soon. He said, “Yeah, on Monday I am off to meet Infinity Ward about the next game, Modern Warfare 4, I’m doing work on the sequel to Modern Warfare 3, it carries straight on and I only ever appear in the Modern Warfare games…”
News of another entry in the Modern Warfare franchise should come as no surprise. Traditionally, development duties on the Call Of Duty series are split between Infinity Ward and Treyarch, with each studio producing a game every two years.
Infinity Ward's last game was the critically acclaimed Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 3. Since then the studio has remained largely silent following the loss of head Jason West and Vince Zampella, as well as outspoken creative strategist Robert Bowling,
Black Ops II is due for release worldwide on November 13 for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC. PlayStation Vita game Call of Duty: Black Ops Declassified is due out also on that date, with a Wii U version following as a launch title for Nintendo's new console on November 18.
Halo 4 gets released. Day later, 343 releases announcement trailer for Halo 5. Imagine how lame that would be?
Ohh wait. MW4. Never saw that coming. Whats next? Black Ops III announced and released 1 day after MW4 hahaha
@thingta42 I would not be suprised. There's two studios that work on the COD Series, and each one makes a stand alone.
We have Infinity Ward on Modern Warfare.
And we have Treyarch on the Black Ops spin off....
Call of Duty is purely a reward-based game.. I.e. it blows smoldering chunks of shit out of an intangibly large, cybotron-sized asshole.
its a game designed for facebooking preteen girls...and yes, socially inept mormon virgins. There's no swaying these two designations....if you play this game you are one of those two....
Black ops 2 looks like a cheap rip off of halo, i used to love the cod games because re creating past events is great fun. The only MW i liked was cod 4 the others were crap
God, this game is a piece of shit. MW3 was an absolute abomination, I'll never be purchasing an Infinity Ward made title again.
After playing battlefield 3.. i couldnt tocuh MW3.. it was so lame.. lol.. never bought any of them also..
Its good to see the results of years at university doing marketing... "I know, what about Modern Warfare 4"... genius
What the fuck.. They haven't even released Black Ops II yet and they're already working on MW 4? I hope to God that IW goes bankrupt.
Defending COD is like admitting that you are not a gamer, just a dork who only plays COD, thus restricting yourself from 99.99% of the video games out there. COD is the downfall of gaming. It appeals to only casual gamers and it has actually turned hardcore gamers into casuals. Believe me, I am a badass gamer that owns on most games, but after I played COD alot back in the day(which I am amazing at), my skill diminished on other games that I had previously been good at. fortunately my skills returned a week after I quit COD.
@SgtStrungOut good for you..your hardcore gamer..but as for me I have this thing called life...I'm married with 3 kids and have 2 jobs..so I don't have the privilege to waste all day... everyday in games.

@Venatorcruiser @stylechyld SHUT UP both of you, mate if you're married with 3 kids you should show a bit of responsibility so don't go telling people off for voicing their opinion just as you did.
@Venatorcruiseractually He was speaking to me that's why I responded..you wouldn't have known that if you had a brain and read his comment to me..
@Venatorcruiser I don't recall talking to you or asking you anything..don't speak until you spoken too..
I'm sick and tired of hearing these idiots complaining about call of duty year after year... if you don't like it don't buy it...There's a reason why call of duty is number one it's because people like it and buy it.. you idiots that claim that you don't like it YOU ARE BUYING call of duty black ops II..admit it..you tards..
@stylechyld This is WHY it shouldn't be bought right here: it's ruining the industry, SINGLE HANDED, because everyone's trying to compete with it. Not EVERYONE wants CoD.
@stylechyld sorry bro i dont buy crap games... not even considering it... enjoy your 60$ mod....
@slotheater you don't like call of duty..yet you are here watching a call of duty video..why? are you lost? or just simply like call of duty and wished they would changed a little since the formula is getting kind of stale! be honest instead saying it's crap..I would have more respect for you if you were to tell the truth instead of denying all together.
@stylechyld @SgtStrungOut listen to me mr married with kids, you sound like an idiot, yes lots of people buy call of duty games and they are very poular but they are not the be all and end all of gaming so shut up and get iber the fact that peopke don't like it and you just got poned by a 13 year old with a higher IQ than you.
@stylechyld @SgtStrungOut You ever heard of battlefield 3? The game takes a giant shit in COD's mouth. Anyways, MW(the original) was great, even genre defining, but after that, have been mediocre at best. MW3 is an atrocity, it's way worse than MW2. You are just such a blind Call of Duty dicksucker that you can't see a terrible rehashed game when it smacks your ignorant stupid face.
@SgtStrungOut you taking shots at me because you hate the fact that you have to sit there and swallow the fact that the truth is cod bitch slaps your favorite shooter in to tiny little pieces.. this argument is not about who's better gamer, who is casual or hardcore, don't get sidetracked on the issue at hand.. You do that because you don't have any valid points.. at the end of the day I mostly play sports..and I own multiple shooters in different consoles..mass effect, halo, cod, battlefield, killzone, gears,etc
@SgtStrungOut first of all you don't know me and you know what I am about..first of all I don't even play shooters that much..Im actually in to sports titles more..I was only stating the obvious..cod kills all the other shooter by large margins..someone is buying them..so when hundreds of people say they hate it..I know they are lying..because those numbers don't lie..u understand now..or do I dumb it down to you.
@stylechyld @slotheater Stylechyld your just a casual gaming ***** that sucks at every game that takes skill. Get off MW **** and be your own man. You sound like the typical COD obsessed geek that gets pissed when anyone disses the noob friendly series. I would guarantee that I would own the hell outta you on a million skill based games.
@slotheater so you are telling me you never bought call of duty game?..ever.. ok ..sure buddy..
@slotheater since you admit it...I respect!
@stylechyld no i have... how else could i iterate this to you? but yes they were fun for a while... its just too recycled bro, as well the engine IS showing its age. I am telling you the truth when i tell you they are crap games that show no real improvement from one to the next... oh yes an i came for bill murray i had no idea he was doing the mw games. It was only then i stumbled upon your arrogant statement.
I wished they stopped after Call of Duty 4. Call of Duty 4 was great, but now they're just terrible. Oh well.. It's not like we're forced to play it.
What benefit would there be in changing the game engine for 1 more call of duty now with the next gen consoles around the corner?
The engine for call of duty wont change till the ps4 and other next gen consoles get realised... why would they produce a brand new engine for 1 game?
@kangsta1111 they never changed the engine for 360/ps3 not going to change it for new ones just going to build on it
Even if they wanted to make a new COD game, they should atleast have the decency to make a new engine that is focused on making the COD experience the best it can be. The present engine is terrible by todays standards and comparing it to BF3 and MOH frostbite is just painful. I wonder what it would cost Activision to invest in a new engine that can rival the Frostbite engine
@megaspiderweb09 Actually, BF3 and MOH play very rigid and look choppy. Frostbite engine 2 is...over-exaggerated. Oh, and the new "Medal of Honor: Warfighter" is total garbage. It also runs on the Frostbite 2 engine. Looks, plays, feels outdated.
@StarkJJ @megaspiderweb09 LMFAO. Medal of Honor from 2010 looks better than BO2. Feels less outdated too, the movement of the walk, animations etc. Only downside is the 30 frames per second. Which makes it feel not as silky smooth, not outdated. Quake 3 is extremely smooth now on anything, yet feels incredibly outdated.
@StarkJJ @megaspiderweb09 Rigid and choppy? That is just your excuse that you use because you are used to the noob friendly engine if the COD games. You suck at the frostbite engine games. You say MOHWF plays and feels outdated, yet you are a COD noob that sucks. Your opinion is as useful as taking sex tips off a virgin. I bet you are new to gaming. Go back to COD son.
