A recent tweet from veteran Call of Duty developer Infinity Ward seems to suggest that John “Soap” MacTavish, protagonist of the Modern Warfare games, may be returning to the series. In quite what form isn’t yet clear.
The tweet showed the above image, which features Soap doing what he does best – looking moody and holding a gun. The “Continue YES NO” caption riffs on his ultimate fate in Modern Warfare 3.
It’s speculation at this point, but a sensible guess would be that Soap will appear in a multiplayer Legends Pack, as Captain Price and Vladimir Makarov have previously. In past iterations these packs provide a soldier skin, reticules, weapon camo, and other customisation options.
Infinity Ward will likely follow up on this tease with an official announcement soon.
