The time has come for us to say hello to the upcoming title for Call of Duty 2023: Modern Warfare 3.
Modern Warfare 3 is a testament to the game’s evolution, as it deviates from its original trajectory. Originally slated to be a DLC for Modern Warfare 2, the developers at Sledgehammer Games decided to instead transform this DLC into a full-fledged game, expanding on the rich narratives and intense gameplay that the franchise is known for.
The game is expected to be released on last-generation consoles, such as the Xbox One and PlayStation 4, along with the current generation consoles and PC. Demonstrating Activision’s commitment to ensuring all players can play the new game, irrespective of their platform.
However, this decision is not without its challenges. High-profile gaming figures, including Dr Disrespect, have raised concerns about potential performance issues. They argue that the need to cater to both previous and current generation consoles might impose strain on the game’s performance and graphics. These concerns are yet to be addressed by the developers, and the gaming community is keenly waiting to see how the developers overcome these obstacles.
Another intriguing development involves the attempted Microsoft-Activision Blizzard King acquisition deal, which fell through earlier this year. The plan was to extend the Call of Duty franchise to other platforms like Nintendo Switch and NVIDIA consoles. However, with the deal’s failure, it’s now uncertain whether Modern Warfare 3 will be available on Nintendo Switch, due to the console’s hardware constraints.
The prospect of a port for NVIDIA also seems unlikely. Sledgehammer Games have announced the launch of Warzone Mobile later this year, after a six-month delay. This move towards mobile gaming, along with the failure of the Microsoft-Activision deal, suggests a focus on platforms other than NVIDIA.
Despite these uncertainties, one thing remains clear: Modern Warfare 3 marks a new chapter in the Call of Duty series. Sledgehammer Games is pushing boundaries by expanding the franchise’s reach across multiple platforms, while also creating an entirely new game from what was initially planned as an extension to Modern Warfare 2.
The stage is set for an imminent worldwide reveal, and the gaming world eagerly awaits what promises to be a thrilling addition to the Call of Duty roster. The exact performance on the various platforms is yet to be confirmed, but the expectations are high. As we prepare to welcome Modern Warfare 3, we hope it will live up to its hype and deliver an immersive experience that’s both exciting and memorable for gamers across the globe. Stay tuned for more updates!
