Infinity Ward is not working on the inevitable Modern Warfare 3, the developer has insisted.

Speaking to, community manager Robert Bowling said Infinity Ward has "honestly no clue" what its next game will be.

With Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 due out globally November 10, the finishing touches are being applied to what many believe will be the best-selling video game of all time.

Even so, Activision-owned Infinity Ward insists "100 per cent of the team" is dedicated to Modern Warfare 2.

Bowling was responding to questions from Gearbox Software's head honcho Randy Pitchford, who asked of Infinity Ward in June: "What else have you got? Can you give me something I haven’t seen before?”

Pitchford said at the time: "The folks that are innovating need to be rewarded so that the folks that are making big bets can take that risk. It’s too big of a risk for Infinity Ward to do anything but what they’re doing, because there’s too much value and there’s really big scope for it.”

Bowling responded to Pitchford's call, saying "eventually we'll do something else".

"Well, we like to do new stuff all the time as well," he said.

"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."

Are you already working on that?

"No. Right now, 100 per cent of the team is dedicated on Modern Warfare 2. We have no, honestly, we have no clue…"

Not even Modern Warfare 3?

"No. Honestly we have no clue what our next game is. I'm planning on taking a nap for three months. And then maybe I'll wake up."

So there you have it CoD fans. For all the latest on Modern Warfare 2, including a hands-on preview of the multiplayer, check out our game page. It's out November 10.

They don't exactly have much of a crossover. One is an epic RPG, the other is an explosive FPS. I know which one I'd choose, and imagine most people will, at the time, know what experience they're after.

Not that anything could possibly impact the sales of Modern Warfare 3 anyway!

With Skyrim scheduled for the same day wouldn't that be an epic fail in terms of timing?

That's not news; it's an educated guess that practically anyone with a calendar could make.

They should definitely come out with MW3. It will have really cool maps and better weapons than previous MW2. And hopefully there will be no hacked chopper gunners or crap like that.

Please, no more Modern Warfare themes.... (Modern Warfare 3)
let's get to the other new theme of COD warfare...
Like... Call of Duty : Metropolis, or Call of Duty : Suite Combat (which the storyline is NOT related to COD Modern Warfare 2)... We need New themes of warfare lika a laser Guns, huge Robots (suite), future-modern tanks, also a spaceship carrier which hopefully the guys from Infinity Ward could provide...
The Story begins with a future-robotic warfare... the setting year would be 2142 at Earth, Mars, Venus, also Intergalactic... Well,... any idea to get it start from Infinity Ward?
