Infinity Ward Has "No Clue" About Their Next Project

The first Modern Warfare smashed sales records everywhere and became the most popular online game of the generation. This is likely why Infinity Ward decided to make a sequel rather than a different Call of Duty entry, but don't expect fire to strike three times.

During a Videogamer interview with Infinity Ward community manager Robert Bowling, we learn that the studio isn't planning a third Modern Warfare title. In fact, they're really not sure what their next project will be, which poses plenty of questions. Thing is, back in June, Gearbox Software boss Randy Pitchford stirred up some ruckus by asking IW, "What else have you got? Can you give me something I haven't seen before?" He went on to say that it was "too big of a risk" for Infinity Ward to go beyond Call of Duty but Bowling was quick to say they would "eventually do something else." And to clarify that this upcoming sequel really is "something else," Bowling had this to say:

"When we feel like we can't innovate any further in the Call of Duty franchise, then we'll do something else. A lot of that mentality went into Modern Warfare 2. That's why it's Modern Warfare 2. It is Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, but you'll never see that in game. We never call it that. It's because we think of this as a new IP. This is our Modern Warfare 2 game. So we are constantly doing new stuff.

We're doing stuff in this game that you've never seen before, which is awesome. We're going to new locations in single player that you've never seen before. We innovate in our own way. But yeah, eventually we'll do something else, and it will be fun and it will be awesome and it will be fresh and it will be great."

Bowling than said he had "no clue" what their next game will be, but he did say he's going to take a three-month long nap. Well, that's probably well deserved after producing a title that Activision claims could end up being the best-selling video game of all time. And yeah, we would like to see IW do a little something different, now that they've proven themselves over and over again in the Call of Duty franchise.

Ben those "top notch" games are the same thing over and over. Nothing revolutionary, nothing remarkable about the storyline or presentation. It's comparable to the Madden Series. It's gained a huge following and regardless of it's content people will buy it simply due to it being the next installment in the series.

You're referring to 3rd person shooters which have to make up for their lack of precision controls in regards to shooting.

The main gameplay aspect of a FPS is the shooting, thus any trace of auto aim is pathetic.

No, my primary complaint with Valve is that they refuse to advance (currently) and their games were never anywhere near as innovative as people wish to believe.

Speaking of hypocritical, I find it downright hysterical that you continue to blindly push the superiority of PCs when there hasn't been a single solitary innovative or unique title on it in the past decade.

Guess we don't really need anything new, huh?

Its sad when innovation is the only measuring stick. C'mon, Vertigo, MW2 is gonna be killer. I'd think if anyone were to be a success after coming out of their confines, it would definitely be Infinity.

Not just anyone can make a quality game. Seriously, if that were the case we would be inundated with releases of 9.5, which MW2 will be at worst. I think it is a good sign they want to try something new. Mw2 is by no means stagnate so stop kidding yourself Vertigo.

Wage I don't really care about innovation, I mean come on I still play Counter Srike and I've been doing so since the summer of 1999. I simply brought it up in hopes of dealing a low blow to Ben.

I do however think MW2 looks the exact same as its predecessors and since I've never enjoyed any of IW's games I see no reason to look forward to this game.

Again auto aim for a FPS is the equivalent of infinite lives in a platformer.

I've straight up gotta agree with that f*ing auto aim, DAMNIT! That pisses me off when someone passes the guy you had a headshot on and you end up latching on and missing completely.

Idk. I guess I feel its like FPS guy says to an RPG nut, hey whats with all the item management? Every RPG game is the same! Or a RPG guy says to a Driving simulator guy and says, all you do is race in circles!

Its all tastes, I guess. Lets just not hate our brethren gamers.

IW will do what makes money... and eventually, as we have seen in the past for some studios... some of the truly creative guys will get frustrated and decide to leave and set up their own gaming firm in a bid to "win over their freedom"... to experiment and to make "independent" game I.P.s.

What is stopping them maybe? Bad economy - most of the IW employees know where their bread is buttered, including their nice bonuses for finishing MW2, 3, 4, 5 and 6 on time. They get free music via the Rock Band series... all in-house, while they work - yippee...

...and so the cookie crumbles... when you are bored with what you do find something to either change direction (and risk derailing your life) or fly the like the wind because you have a real genius inside you...

It seems to be the trend to batter anyone who's involved in the CoD franchise, esp with the bad press activision's Bobby has brought upon it. But he's a money man and has probably never played CoD, he most certainly didn't make the game and it seems he has disdain for anyone who works for him.
Lets give merit to the guys and gals who put all the long hours into creating the games. You don't have to be into fps's or the CoD games to appreciate that they do turn out a decent looking product built to entertain.
Can't hate the guys for wanting to make money from it, bills gotta be paid and the kids must eat. But when the finished product does come out, I personally get the vibe that for the people behind the scenes, Bobby being the exception, it's a labour of love.
I'm not a CoD fanboy, I do enjoy the games but I generally enjoy fps's anyway, CoD games are good for killin a few hours and thats cool. It wasn't so long ago when it was cool to say you where looking forward to MW2, only since that twit starting mouthing off that it became cool to slate the franchise...get over it and don't just jump on the band wagon because you don't want to look like you have an opinion of your own that wasn't influenced by the masses.

I would like for them to create a stealth/action game. They did a really good in the stealth mission from MW1, so why not create a something similar in third person view.

Oh and personally it really pisses me off when so many people talk sh!t about shooters and call of duty yet they go on a defend killzone 2. Seriously get over it this gen is about the shooters, if you want your RPGS go back to the ps2, while Sony is still selling it. I'm not saying RPGs suck I'm just saying that many people DO prefer shooter over RPGs.

World:

When COD4 came out, it was a unique, top notch game. Now just because shooters aren't your favorite genre, doesn't mean the game isn't a high quality title.

Will COD:MW2 be top notch? No way of knowing at this point, but I have faith in the IW as a developer regardless of their bitchass publisher.

Since IW's area of expertise is shooters, it doesn't seem like it would take a psychic to predict that their next game will be gun related.

Now, people who believe that the FPS genre is an oversaturated, uncreative and repetitive thorn in the side of gaming have a point, but for people that enjoy a good shoot'em up, IW is a much cherished treasure.

Maybe I should've been more precise, by high quality I meant doing SOMEthing to the max. MW isn't even 720p. The single player is exciting but ever-so-brief in order to bend over for the multiplayer which was so glitchy and vulnerable to hacks that people could fly through the air for a very long time.

Like I said IW is talented and MW IS a good game, but unique it isn't. I've just lost my stomach for multiplat FPS. Ya gotta go exclusive these days for a truly "top-notch" experience.

But now all CoD are just the same old car with a fresh coat of paint. And even the paint job on MW2 doesn't look fresh. Looking at game play vids, screens etc, it looks like an add on to MW1 much like Halo STDS.

Well since they belong to Activision. Then I can safe bet is gonna be Modern Warfare 3. I am not saying Infinity Ward can't make other types of games but, it's ACTIVISION people.

Also, I think they wanted to rename the franchise to Modern Warfare only to start from 2 not 6, because 6 seems like too many sequels lol.

I'm with you limited. I'm not much of a PC gamer but ever since those days, spending hours and hours playing Countet Strike on my Vaio, PC is best for FPS's. They're not the same on consoles. FPS's just seem best suited for the PC platform. The only FPS that I think comes close to the mouse and keyboard is Metroid Prime 3(now the Trilogy)and only because the Wiimote pointer functions much like a mouse but even that's still not as good as the actual mouse.

I don't know what you guys yapping about but Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare is the best FPS since Goldeneye 64.

Maybe IW have NO CLUE right now, cause their busy thinking about escaping Bobby Kotick's grasp. Maybe they're in talks with Take-Two,EA you'll never know.

I have to disagree. Counter Strike was better then Call of Duty in my opinion. Metroid Prime is better then Call of Duty. If you want to compare multiplayer aspects, then yes it's a step up from Golden Eye. a pretty big step up. I'll give that much credit. I think everyone is just tired of it. Craptivision is turning Call of Duty into another Guitar Hero.

Ridley Scott is directing it, so I'm not giving up hope completely just yet. Looking forward to the new Predator movie next July since it's a sequel to the first and not that stupid Predator 2 garbage. But like you, I much prefer the Aliens. Hurry up with that new AvP game. February is to far away.

Alien was never meant to have a sequel and sure as hell never meant to have a prequel. A large part of Alien's brilliance was its mystery concerning the alien species and the imagination left open to the viewer. All will be lost with this prequel and it will only soil one of the greatest movies of all time.

Also Ridley has proven for every gem he turns out he has a few turds. While it is true he directed Alien and has a lot to do with it being a masterpiece thankfully some of his biggest ideas for the movie were thrown out becuase of how asinine they were, (The alien ripping off Ripley's head at the end and turning to the camera while speaking in her voice).

I could go on about anything concerning Alien for a lifetime, sorry if this is flooding the thread.

Geo I don't mean to put a damper on a movie you seem to be looking forward to. I too am looking forward to the latest Predator movie. Rodriguez will do the series justice, I'm sure of it. Predator2 was one of the worst movies I ever saw, minus Bill Paxton dying.

It's ok. It's just nice to see an actual "Alien" movie being made again, even if it is a prequel, and not another one of these "VS" abominations. Leave that franchise to the gamers and comic lovers where it belongs. Personally I would've liked seeing Ripleys' head being ripped off. Considering what they did with that character after Aliens, it would've been a better fate lol. Let's just hope they get the atmosphere and horror factor back with these two new films.

Ok, enough movie talk. I'm sure there will be a more appropriate time once the new game approaches and again next summer.

What i think IW should do is drop the campaign part of the Call of Duty Franchise and just make a full online multiplayer game. But i do think they should move on to a new era of warfare. One game i think they should study is BF 2142. If they could do something like that and either just make a total online game or make it a small series that would probably sell very well. BTW has anyone heard if theyve put any kind of zombie mode is MW2??

These comments remind me of 360 fanboys and PS3 fanboys arguing. Arguing last year anyway. My, my, how the tables have turned.

Moving along...

If anything is over-saturated, it's World War II-themed games. I thought that IW did a fantastic job with CoD4 and I believe MW2 will be just as good, if not better.

I wouldn't worry too much about what they're going to next when their next game isn't even out for another two months. Calm down folks. I agree with www though, they're probably conjuring up a departure from Activision. Hell, Square Enix is publishing MW2 in Japan. Maybe IW will flock to Square Enix and develop a new IP? Who knows? Time will tell.

Speaking of Activision though...

Bobby Kotick is a virgin, pass it around.

Would be nice to see a COD: Future War or something.

I'm sorry but stop trying to hate on IW for making tons of money. When they do a COD game, you know it is going to be top notch. Look at how many perks you can get and the multiplayer isn't run and gun like everyone wants to think it is.

They should just drop the COD from the title. Modern Warfare is one of the best online experiences this gen. I enjoy every genre as long as it is done well so please everyone learn to do so. Look how many rpgs were coming out 5 years ago, you didn't see anyone saying not another rpg.

Nothing is killing the industry, just adding more variety and bringing in new gamers.

MW2 will be good, everyone knows that. But this is the last one they're going to be able to get away with. Some of you guys call a game "unique" because you can shoot through wood or thin metal? Ok so Battlefield is unique because you can blow out walls and completely demolish houses? No, that just a bit of evolution on the FPS genres part. If your still addicted to COD games that's nice, but you cannot count COD4 as a milestone of gaming. If you want to than I will put every shooter up to Bad Companys sound, which I would love to see topped. Or Killzone 2's graphics and realism. So now that my expectations are so high up no COD game will reach that point because they are MULTIPLATFORM.

COD won't work to transcend the genre, they will continue to make the same games with recycled rubbish over and over again and every chump will eat it up. So enjoy your average FPS while I find the shooters that are constantly evolving. New Maps and a few new weapons and perks don't count.

MW2 is gonna kill flat out. Just the CoD fans here arent making the right argument to why we love these games, and its the multi-player that is making our nipples hard.

Seems more and more that you people here only rave over a game if its a PS3 exclusive. How is KZ2 any better than any CoD game? Its not just another run of the mill FPS great game yes, but still run of the mill. Whats Guerrilla gonna do next probably KZ3 another FPS and nobody faults them its all they seem to be able to do.

Killzone: Liberation is a TPS but it was for PSP.

I liked MW1, it was a pretty fun game. MW2 is kind of pushing it though. I don't see anything that interests me in it, other than the snowmobiles. Besides, by the time it comes out, I'll still be playing Uncharted 2.

I'm just glad IW is done with MW after this new installment. Hopefully they can get something really cool or special out onto the market. I don't really care if its a shooter, as long as they don't turn into a Bungie and make the same game over and over again for the masses. They're too good of a dev to do that.
