Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 4 not planned “at this time”

Most had expected Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 4 to be this year’s Call of Duty title. That didn’t happen, as Activision ended up revealing Ghosts. But what about the future of the Modern Warfare sub-series?
For now, Infinity Ward doesn’t intend to continue on with Modern Warfare. Community manager Tina Palacios, speaking with OXM, said the following when asked about the similarites between the Ghosts and Modern Warfare title/logo art:
“With the storyline, we knew that we wanted to end the Modern Warfare franchise, and we wanted to go in a new direction. I can say that our focus and only focus is on Ghosts right now as it is, and we have no other plans at this time… when we were creating Ghosts, we really got inspired by Ghost from Modern Warfare 2, just by how he looks.
“It made sense for these soldiers we have in Ghosts who want to hide their identities would have the same masks and face paint. I think it would be safe for me to say that just knowing the characters from our previous games didn’t have a backstory, that’s what really pushed us forward. We thought we need to really establish that.”
