OnlySP.com has received an anonymous tip about the Call of Duty game being worked on by Sledgehammer. According to this tip, it will be a new Modern Warfare game set in 2018, a direct sequel to Modern Warfare 3. It will star Captain Price and Nikolai. Nikolai will be playable and will actually talk, and the SAS will be a major focus of the game.
The tip also claims General Shepherd survived, escaped to Europe, and will return in this new game as the main villain, along with Shadow Company. The game will include a stealth mission in Amsterdam and another mission in Shanghai.
Some aspects of these rumors make sense. It wouldn’t be a surprise if the game was Modern Warfare 4, as Sledgehammer worked on Modern Warfare 3 and a Sledgehammer employee’s LinkedIn profile said they were working on the next Modern Warfare game.
On the other hand, the promotional Time Magazine poster for Modern Warfare 3 (as above) mentioned Shepherd’s burial, so it seems unlikely that he’s alive. However, OnlySP pointed out that in the knife always strikes him in the eye in Modern Warfare 2, so it could be possible.
Rumors like these are interesting to consider, but we aren’t going to place too much stock in them. Fans come up with fake rumors all the time. Nevertheless, there could be some truth to them. We’ll keep you updated as we learn more. What do you think—is this what the next Call of Duty game has in store, or will it be something different?
