Call Of Duty Modern Warfare Reboot Won't End on Part 3

There is more to come.

The original Call of Duty: Modern Warfare series only had three parts, but it seems Activision has other plans for the reboot and will continue providing content for the fans.

In an interview with The Washington Post, Call of Duty's narrative director Brian Bloom shared his thoughts on the recently announced Modern Warfare 3 and said the story wouldn't end where the original did.

“We think of character arcs as going one way, but they can also fall off their arc, they can go backwards, people can evolve and devolve,” Bloom said. “All these things, they offer rich, fertile ground to tell stories, and that’s not going to stop. In fact, I would say we’re just getting started.”

So looks like Modern Warfare 4 is coming sometime in the future. Am I surprised? Not really. Are you?

But before it happens, there is MW3 to be excited about. This part of the series introduces new mechanics, like "open combat missions," which make it less linear by offering objectives in open spaces. Sledgehammer Games gives players freedom, letting them choose how they clear missions – silently or causing mayhem – and what tools they use. For the first time, a sandbox experience is a priority for the team.

The studio has worked on branching dialogue trees that react to players' decisions – a feature familiar to any RPG player but not typical for Call of Duty.

“If you could picture a screenplay page where action would ordinarily be written, the typical version would be ‘See X as we approach X, and X are moving toward X,’” Bloom said. “Now, I had at the very beginning in a bracket for every action that says, ‘if/when.’ That’s an exciting development for us.”

The game will also feature 12 "brand-new" maps for the 6v6 battles, "the largest map" ever seen in the Call of Duty series for the zombie mode, and a classic minimap.

You'll be able to appreciate the new approach when Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 gets released on November 10.
