Report: Modern Warfare 4 Mentioned by Voice Actor

By - Source: Eurogamer | B 29 comments

Does it seem likely that a professional voice actor would break his NDA?

Considering how successful the Modern Warfare series has been for Activision and the Call of Duty franchise, it doesn't require a mental reach to realize that Modern Warfare 3 would surely have a sequel, and another… and another… until the series no longer proves financially successful. Really, the only suspense left is as to when the next in the series will be released, and even that's hardly anything to blink at. After all, the Call of Duty franchise releases are like clockwork, returning every holiday season.

Unsurprisingly, according to Captain Price voice actor Bill Murray, Infinity Ward's next project is Modern Warfare 4. Murray allegedly told this to ThisIsXbox founder Jason Andrews aboard a plane, when Andrews recognized Murray by his voice. Andrew claims that Murray, not knowing Andrews's media affiliation, said the following: "Yeah, on Monday I am off to meet Infinity Ward about the next game, Modern Warfare 4, I’m doing work on the sequel to Modern Warfare 3, it carries straight on and I only ever appear in the Modern Warfare games…"

The validity of whether or not Murray would say such is unconfirmed, although Andrews posted a picture of Murray and himself onboard the plane as proof. Still, it seems rather unlikely that a voice actor would break a NDA just to impress someone he thinks is a fan.

Soon after, Infinity Ward tweeted that what Murray stated about working on Modern Warfare 4 is false. The developer stated that it hasn't yet spoken to any voice actors, so "all news is speculation."

Notably, Infinity Ward didn't deny Modern Warfare 4's existence. As expected, we'll probably be seeing Modern Warfare 4, whether or not Bill Murray's voice is featured or not (unlikely, considering Captain Price's integral role), come Holiday 2013.

    Lets just stop with Modern Warfare naming system of 3, 4, etc and go with what other manufactureres do and call it by the year so if this comes out in 2013 it will be Modern Warfare 2013 so you know how out of date with weapons, armor, and tacti-cool stuff you are.

    Well... I don't know how Activision is going to continue the story. Makarov already dead in MW3, and the only thing we don't know is that if Sandman and his group died or not. But other than that, there's really nothing to continue. Unless they made a ENTIRELY different story.

    They might as well. That way the customers know that they are not getting a new game each year, because it's true. Also I would just stop doing a story all together and just make a "franchise" mode like other sports games. Just make a team with a squad of your friends, and fight. Your team gathers points each battle and can earn new gear. This will carry over to the next game and you can only get certain gear this way. It's kinda like a ladder system.

    For the love of God, please let it end. I was a huge fan of the CoD series, right up to CoDWaW. And that left me with the biggest 'meh' feeling I've ever experienced in a shooter.

    literately, the only way to make them stop is to not give them money. i mean its pretty much stated early on in the article

    the gamers have to decide to not buy the game as a whole. as long as they get money, theyll keep pulling this on the buyers, and in the end, paid a hefty price for a slight revamp of different things in each game.

    but....but.....but Call of Duty 4 is already out, why release the same game again ? :sarcastic: 

    On a side Note, Activision pumps out a new COD ever year.....valve has been trolling us with EP3 ever since.

    You too, but modern warfare gave me the feeling of being ripped off for the $5 I spent, it just felt repetitive and generic, World at War was a huge disapointment I tried to like both but couldn't. So for ME I think shooters died with Day of Defeat. I have never found anything that matched the fun playing that game for it's time nor it's community.

    IMO...

    Bad Company 2 > Red Faction(PS2) > COD series.

    Comparing a game like Day of Defeat to a superior game like CoD4 is generous.

    I don't see a cow able to milk anymore (infinityward). Instead it's lactating blood and farting deadly methane gases :na:  by the hands of activision.

    I'm going to get voted down for this, but I like the run and gun game play, and I grew up with doom, doom 2, plutonium doom and final doom, same stuff different levels and I love it like that, having the same graphics is a bit of a let down I will admit, and the story line to mod war is epic, I love it, pity no more Soap or Makarov, I'd love to see what happens
