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.

hey, for Modern Warfare 3, why doesnt infinity ward do something along the lines of killing maekarov, Shepard has ason and he wants to kill you, cleaning up the remnants of Shadow Company or someone in China really wants you dead or something along those lines. I really just want infinity ward to come out with the third game. im getting tired of the special ops

I think they should have it start right after Soap killed Sheppard, or have it start with you being the U.S. Rangers and flying into Moscow.

If Infinity Ward do decide to make a Modern Warfare 3 make it when you prestige you don't lose any of your Perks, Guns, Camo and Attachments but when you do prestige you un-lock the guns at the certain level with the attachments saved, cheers

i is like a cliff hanger
if they arnt macking a Mw3 make a future warfare and put an update on Mw2 so u can do co op mode and have somen like spetnaz zomies or op4 zombies somen like tht game mode dont go back to games like WoW and if therte are people that hack cod on ps3 xbox or wii they should be band

I've never managed to buy into the Kool Aid of the CoD games. I loved the first two (on PC) but the rest have always felt meh.

The latest game especially. Some of the missions were quite simply awesome sauce - the level on the oil rig being a fav along with the ones where you are with the british guys kicking ass. But the levels such as storming the whitehouse just seemed to be filled with too much random death and luck to carry the narrative style of the rest of the game for me.
Multiplayer seems to be the same amount of hit and miss too. I can see why some people like it but I think that due to its all encompassing stranglehold its snuffing out too many other deserving games that are worthy of gamers time - a bit like Japanese knotweed. yes it was / is pretty and yes it can have its uses but it can also get a bit much.

I would like to see the series given a rest and hopefully have something else given time to grow be that by the teams who made the series what it is or some other upstart.
