Let's see, an Activision Blizzard game starring a former side-character called “Ghost”? Hoo boy, we've been down this road before, and it doesn't end well. Ok, cancellation fears concerning a possibly non-existent game aside, a site called thisisxbox.com fired up the old rumor mill, and it hacked up some dust, cobwebs, and a big hint about Infinity Ward's next entry in the Modern Warfare series.
Apparently, it won't be Modern Warfare 3, as originally suspected. Instead, a “source within the industry” told the site that the new game will star everybody's favorite “Gee, I wish I was playing as that guy” Modern Warfare 2 character, Ghost. The story will follow the conspicuously style-conscious soldier up to the events of Modern Warfare and then into his Task Force 141 days as detailed by an already released comic book series. According to the source, areas from both Modern Warfare 1 and 2 will also be revisited, but from different perspectives.
Infinity Ward refused to confirm or deny the rumor, which – in gaming industry speak – often translates to “well, we're not saying 'no'....” But even if you hate the idea with every fiber of your being, Activision's at least making sure you've got approximately marketsaturationfinity optionsto choose from.
