It does not take a seasoned industry watcher to predict that Activision will make a new Call of Duty game in 2013, but first details on this project have come to light. Siliconera has heard from a source that next year's Call of Duty will be a continuation of the Modern Warfare series.
The main character of this unannounced title is a "battle-hardened veteran in his mid-thirties with a nihilistic point of view," the source says, and voice-overs for the game are currently under way in Los Angeles, California.
This news follows a report from last month, when voice actor Bill Murray (Captain Price) reportedly confirmed Modern Warfare 4. Murray later denied having said anything on the matter, and Infinity Ward called the report "speculation."
An Activision representative was not immediately available for comment.
The Modern Warfare story arc began in 2007 with Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare. Sequels Modern Warfare 2 and Modern Warfare 3 were released in 2009 and 2011, respectively.
