The story that was posted earlier today with the countdown styled in the Modern Warfare 3 graphic, and the dog tags that were sent out to press, was all an elaborate hoax? Just a short time ago Geoff Keighly of GTTV did some digging and contacted Activision for clarification on the rumor.
Last year when the Infinity Ward scandal broke and the lead developers behind one of the most popular franchises in gaming up and left Activision, many people including myself thought that the Modern Warfare franchise was finished, let alone expect Modern Warfare 3.
Can three of the most talented development groups in gaming do justice to the industry's most popular franchise? It is now confirmed that Sledgehammer Games, Raven Software, and the fragmented Infinity Ward will be collaborating for Modern Warfare 3.
The next Call of Duty may not be a Modern Warfare title but it will be as close as legally possible. One thing that is not up in the air however, is who will be developing the next 'Modern Warfare' be it Modern Warfare 3 or not, Sledgehammer Games recently posted a job listing where the company is looking for a community manager for the next Call of Duty Game.
