Infinity Ward: We’ll do something different when we run out of ideas for Call of Duty

The Internet may be showing all the textbook symptoms of Modern Warfare 2-mania, but it’s never too early to start anticipating Infinity Ward’s next game. Well, okay, this might be jumping the gun a bit, but still.

Videogamer asked Infinity Ward’s Robert Bowling about his company’s next project, to which he replied:

“Honestly we have no clue what our next game is. I’m planning on taking a nap for three months. And then maybe I’ll wake up.”

“When we feel like we can’t innovate any further in the Call of Duty franchise, then we’ll do something else. A lot of that mentality went into Modern Warfare 2. That’s why it’s Modern Warfare 2. It is Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, but you’ll never see that in game. We never call it that. It’s because we think of this as a new IP. This is our Modern Warfare 2 game. So we are constantly doing new stuff.”

“But yeah, eventually we’ll do something else, and it will be fun and it will be awesome and it will be fresh and it will be great.”

So there you have it. Infinity Ward’s eventual future won’t be modern. Or something.
