Rumor Mill Heat Check: Modern Warfare 3: Return Of Ghost, Dead Space 3 Already In Production, And An HD Metal Gear Solid Trilogy On The Way?

Share And Comment

Man you gotta love the rumor mill right and while lots of the rumors turn out to be just that, occasionally they prove to be very accurate. The first one that we want to look at this the rumor that is making the rounds that next Modern Warfare will be a prequel called Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 3: Return Of Ghost. We first heard rumors about this in January and in the rumors section of the latest issue of OPM it noted “insider whispers” which would seem to suggest that Infinity Ward’s next Modern Warfare title will be a prequel, with Ghost in the lead role. While Ghost was undoubtedly a cool character, we just don’t know if he’s interesting enough to build a whole game around. We think we would much rather know what the hell happens to Soap and Price. We will keep you up to date as this develops further.

deadspace2ps3coverzkg1The next one has to do with belief that Visceral Games is already working on Dead Space 3. There isn’t a lot behind this one except that EA likes sequels and Dead Space 2 was a bigger success than the original. Those alone are enough for us to be 90% sure there will be a Dead Space 3, not sure it will make it into 2011 but we could definitely see Spring 2012.

The next one is about the fact Konami is reportedly working on an HD Metal Gear Solid Trilogy. This is one actually makes a lot of sense if the timing is right. Metal Gear Solid Rising is set to be released later this year (hopefully), if it does stay on track then releasing an HD trilogy a few months before that could really drive folks to pick the game up that hadn’t before and thus improve the sales of MGS Rising when it finally does release.
