Call of Duty Ghosts: no plans for Modern Warfare 4 at this time, says Infinity Ward

Cal of Duty: Ghosts developer Infinity Ward is laser-focused on development of the game and its post-launch content for the foreseeable future, and has no plans to revisit the Modern Warfare franchise at this time. That’s the claim of studio community manager Tina Palacios.

Speaking with OXM, Palacios said of Ghosts and the legacy of the ‘Ghost’ character in Modern Warfare, “With the storyline, we knew that we wanted to end the Modern Warfare franchise, and we wanted to go in a new direction.”

Will there be a fourth Modern Warfare title? Palacios explained, “I can say that our focus and only focus is on Ghosts right now as it is, and we have no other plans at this time,” and added, “when we were creating Ghosts, we really got inspired by Ghost from Modern Warfare 2, just by how he looks.

“It made sense for these soldiers we have in Ghosts who want to hide their identities would have the same masks and face paint. I think it would be safe for me to say that just knowing the characters from our previous games didn’t have a backstory, that’s what really pushed us forward. We thought we need to really establish that.”

Interestingly, Modern Warfare 3 co-developer Sledgehammer games has been billed as developing a new Modern Warfare title. Rumours persisted after this employee listed the game on their CV. Check it out here.

What do you think? Is Sledgehammer making the first fully next-gen Call of Duty title as you read this? Let us know below.

    Ghosts might as well be a sequel to MW 3.

    There are no plans for it in your studio, i bet its happening elsewhere (Hint hint the article.)

    Oh i wish they could say there are no plans for another COD title that would get me surprised, because now its predictable that another COD will be releasing next year.

    Sledgehammer games is definitely making the full pledge next gen CoD, just visit their fb page and you can see they’re hiring like crazy. That only means they’re making something big, maybe a new engine from the ground up along with a new CoD? most probably. I’m positively hoping that whatever CoD Sledgehammer games is working on, it’ll give innovation both gameplay and visual wise.

    A new engine ??

    Look,…the NExtgen Engine (just like COD4′s engine in the previous gen) will be the same for the whole Gen.

    Activision :). As long as people buy why would they waste money on making a new engine ?

    I’ll buy COD ghost because for once they modified the game. But if Ghost 2/mw4 is the same deal. No thanks
