Next Call of Duty projects debunked
Posted on March 21, 2013 by Drew Bergmark

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 4: The Movie

Earlier today on an Infinity Ward registered website, a trailer was released for a movie called "Modern Warfare 4". This trailer is not manufactured by Activision or any of it's development studios that have previously worked on the Call of Duty series. Last week, the website was confirmed a fake by the VP at Edelman Digital who is currently working with Activision through a tweet responding to Twitter user Wario64's tweet.

After I found out that the trailer was a fake, I looked into researching the trailer's website: 'UnexpectedReveal.com'. The server hosting the website is in Russia and the zip code for the address puts the studio south of downtown LA as Infinity Ward's address is in the San Fernando Valley. The phone number connected to the website's registration is of Russian origin and is registered to 81 websites not affiliated with any Activision companies or contractors.

As if this proof wasn't enough, footage in the trailer was taken from a series uploaded almost three years ago. Shots were mixed to give the appearance that it was completely unique and of course taking out all of the Metal Gear Solid references used in the online series. Next Gen Tactics, a popular Call of Duty channel on YouTube spoke with the director of the series and he clarified that he knew nothing about a Modern Warfare 4 game or movie. According to the description, the movie will release the second Tuesday in November which makes absolutely no sense as movies come to the theaters on Fridays.

Call of Duty: Ghosts

While the Unexpected Reveal has been debunked, Drift0r on YouTube posted a video yesterday revealing that a source from 'within the Call of Duty machine' leaked information to him about the next Call of Duty game. Instead of going with the obvious 'Modern Warfare 4' subtitle, Drift's source claims the next game will be called 'Call of Duty: Ghosts' and there will be an announcement of the game around May 1st. According to the detailed commentary over some Modern Warfare 3 gameplay, the game will be set in the future but will use 'current generation' guns as an event has happened causing future weapons to be inoperable by unspecified means.

To wrap up this second rumor though, supposedly the next Call of Duty will release only on next generation consoles. Take all this information in and throw it out on the grill to see what next potential information could cook up. Honestly, there is no chance either of these two rumors being true.

Update: I have to spell this out for some people that think I didn't give enough information on debunking Drift0r's video. Activision releasing an astronomically popular video game franchise on a few months old (if the next Xbox is released during late summer for some reason) console exclusively would take down sales of the game similar to how The Conduit performed on the Wii. The Conduit was expected to perform as Halo did on the original Xbox (one million units in first year) but instead it sold only four-hundred thousand units within the first 16 months of it's release. With Call of Duty being an annualized franchise, you can't expect Activision to jump the train as they did between the Xbox and the Xbox 360.

If Activision were to have seriously thought this through unless obligated by a binding contract with Sony or Microsoft about releasing the next Call of Duty only on next-generation consoles, they would have realized they'd be losing money on a product. If you are asking for me to get inside information and report it without giving a private source credit, I'll do that as soon as I get one. Honestly looking at the way Activision does business and how they want to keep the investors happy as Call of Duty breaks sales records each year, this would only draw back sales, causing perhaps the lowest stock dip since Activision and Blizzard merged in July of 2008.

Update 2: I spoke on Twitter with Drift0r and he actually agreed upon the claims I had made. I agreed with his reasoning for presenting the information as his source that he heavily trusts gave him inside information. As I don't know of his credentials, I have no proof either way if his source is lying or does in fact work for Activision in one way or another.
