Rumor: MW3 A Prequel, Ghost Will Be Lead Character
If you know Call of Duty, you know Ghost. And because nobody has officially announced the title and details for this year's CoD entry, the rumors continue to fly.
The latest comes courtesy of the UK Official PlayStation Magazine (courtesy of CVG), and it seems Modern Warfare 3 - supposedly in development at Infinity Ward - will feature series favorite Ghost as the lead character. In fact, according to "insider whispers," the game will be a prequel, although we have no concrete information regarding the game's setting and plot. For the record, other rumors in the OPM mag say that Dead Space 3 is "already in production" (which wouldn't surprise anyone; we know it'll be coming at some point), and PS2 games will soon be downloadable on the PSP. The last, which we reported on earlier, is that Konami is working on a Metal Gear Solid HD trilogy for the PS3. But for now, Ghost is once again in the limelight and Infinity Ward may have wanted to embrace that character's popularity amongst the CoD faithful.
Also, prequels are big these days. We're just not sure which CoD title MW3 would be a prequel to...
