A couple of days ago, we got word that Sledgehammer Games was developing the next part in the Call of Duty series. And while there is no official confirmation of this info as of yet, a LinkedIn profile of one of Sledgehammer’s employees unofficially confirms that fact. Not only that, but OnlySP got word about some details about this new Call of Duty title, so keep reading.
According to an anonymous tipster – in other words, take everything you are about to read with a grain of salt – this new Call of Duty title will be a new entry to the Modern Warfare series and will be releases this year.
“The game is set in the year 2018 as a direct sequel to Modern Warfare 3 with the game taking place across Europe and Asia. Captain Price and Nikolai are set to make a return as the two main lead characters and will return to their roles in the British SAS. According to our tipster, the SAS will play a major role in the campaign, most likely being the main focus instead of switching all around different soldiers and teams as in previous Modern Warfare installments. Nikolai will also be a playable character at some point in the game and will actually talk, a first for the Call of Duty series, excepting Price.”
It is also said that the main villain of this new Call of Duty title will be Shepherd – apparently he’s not dead – and that there will be a stealth mission taking place in Amsterdam, and another place that will feature a mission will be Shanghai.
As always, take everything you just read with a grain of salt.
