A possible new Modern Warfare title in the Call of Duty series has been revealed thanks to a leak from Neversoft.
The report, which appeared on Se7enSins, doesn’t make it clear whether the game would serve as Modern Warfare 4, or instead slot elsewhere in the series as a prequel.
It’s another MW game. There’s something called, ‘Drone Survaillance’ [sic]. They’re working on ‘HALO’ jumps (High Altitude; Low X.) There is a level under ice. There is cloaking tech. Something called a ‘Dominator UAV’.
It’s also important to note that the report is completely unverified and should be taken with a huge pinch of salt.
Despite this, the Neversoft source has made notes on what they saw, explaining, "It’s another MW game. There’s something called, ‘Drone Survaillance’ [sic]. They’re working on ‘HALO’ jumps (High Altitude; Low X.) There is a level under ice. There is cloaking tech. Something called a ‘Dominator UAV’."
Though it’s not a lot to go on, if we don our speculation hat for a minute there’s a fair amount to be gleaned. Drone Surveillance seems to tie in with the technology on show in Modern Warfares 2 and 3, especially in the storyline of the latter. HALO jumps are fairly common set-pieces in games these days, but could point to a mission where we’re tasked with going behind enemy lines. The fact there’s a level under ice really doesn’t tell us much… other than one mission could take place anywhere from Russia to Canada.
An alternative to this is it’s set during nuclear winter and the game isn’t a Modern Warfare title at all, instead moving even further into the future after Black Ops II. The last reported item, a cloaking device, lends credibility to this idea as we’ve certainly never seen invisibility in the Modern Warfare series so far.
Remember, all of this is just speculation based around an unverified report at this stage, though it’s interesting to think what it could mean for the series if true. We’ve reached out to Activision for comment, and will be sure to update the story once we hear anything.
