Infinity Ward has told Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare fans not to rule out future single-player downloadable content, but the developer doesn't have any plans for it right now.

CoD4 is currently the most played game across Xbox LIVE and PSN and has sold phenomenally well across multiple consoles since its release late last year. While gamers have been looking forward to new multiplayer maps for some time, we haven't heard anything about new single-player content.

When asked if gamers will ever see new single-player DLC for CoD4, Infinity Ward programmer Jon Shiring told VideoGamer.com: "I wouldn't rule it out but we don't have any plans for that right now."

Developers tend to prefer to release new multiplayer content than single-player content when it comes to first-person shooters. When it comes to CoD4, Shiring explained, the new DLC was in direct response to community requests.

"In terms of CoD4, the multiplayer on Xbox LIVE and PSN has been just huge, and so the response there has just been amazing," he said. "A lot of people have told me that it's the first multiplayer game that they've played, so we've drawn a lot of new people into our multiplayer. And the community just keeps asking "give us more maps, more maps, we love to play, we just want more variety in the areas we're fighting in!". So in this case the community has just been asking for more multiplayer maps so that's what we've given them here."

The new Call of Duty 4 multiplayer maps will be out on Xbox LIVE on April 4, at a cost of 800 MS Points. The content will be available on PSN for the same price "approximately 21 days later" according to Infinity Ward. There are currently no plans to bring the maps to PC. Check back tomorrow for the full interview with Jon Shiring, where we grill him on the PSN delay and what new content PC owners can expect.

N/A - IW is a business. Businesses are designed to generate money for the owner of the business. People work for the company to earn money for themselves and the business as a whole. Their product is sold to earn them this money. What are they going to charge for the DLC? A Fiver or less? That is merely putting money into the games industry to keep it going...

Without you paying for products the industry would become like the music business - job cutbacks, no chance for bands (new IPs) to develop, dropped after one album if it doesn't sell well, loads of disposable crap (X-factor generation of gaming - bad movie games and sure fire hits) will replace imaginative, challenging gaming.

That is a bleak outlook, granted but a realistic one if developers listened to whingers like you.

I'd like to see them put some effort into fixing the animations... A guy can be lasered in on you with a scope, but to you, he appears to be looking somewhere else and moving around slightly.

Also, if all I can see is the top of your head, how can you shoot me? Where is your weapon? Should it not be visible ?

Neither of these would happen in Halo, but then again, Halo plays like swimming in molasses which is worse.

Course they have no plans for the DLC maps for PC thats because PC gamers dont like paying for DLC unlike us poor mugs on consoles who have to pay if we want the DLC stuff thus IW wont be able to milk the pc gamers for more money. Just admit it IW ure no better then EA and ure taking us all for fools.

I still think multiplayer maps were more important and relevant.
