Rumors are swirling that the developer won't be developing the inevitable third MW.AdvertisementEach year, publisher Activision releases Call of Duty games like clockwork. Set during World War II, the first Call of Duty title was developed by Activision subsidiary Infinity Ward. The second title was also developed by Infinity Ward, but Activision brought on another Activision subsidiary, Treyarch, to develop the third entry in the series.For the fourth title, Infinity Ward threw a curve with Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, a modern take on the war shooter, complete with fancy modern military tech like night vision. (Treyarch, in the meantime, churned out another WWII shooter — though, is currently rumored to be working on a shooter set during the Vietnam War.) The sequel, Modern Warfare 2, was a smash hit, selling 4.7 million copies globally in its first 24 hours. The game earned $550 million worldwide in its first five days. The end of the game leaves the door wide open for a sequel.ShareTweet Kinja is in read-only mode. We are working to restore service.
