Modern Warfare 3 announcement coming this week?

Voice actor strengthens May announce rumours

The voice of Modern Warfare 2's Ghost has dropped strong hints that the series' next instalment will be announced this month - possibly within the week.

Asked on talkSPORT this weekend about his Call of Duty work, Craig Fairbrass - who provided his voice for both Modern Warfare games - said he's "just been out in LA doing something that's going to be announced in May."

He said: "I did Call of Duty: Modern Warfare as Gaz and then I did Ghost in Modern Warfare 2, which has become one of the most iconic figures in the history of computer games, which is great.


"And I've just been out in LA doing something that's going to be announced in May... I've just been out there doing some bits and pieces and one of it's to do with... I can't say too much."

Fairbrass's claim falls in line with Activision's imminent first quarter 2011 financial results, which is set to happen in less than a week next Monday (May 9).

With the second and latest Black Ops DLC released this morning as well, it's seemingly the perfect time to announce the next instalment, which is rumoured to be in development at Infinity Ward, Raven and Sledgehammer.

Quizzed further on the work of voicing a Modern Warfare character, Fairbrass called the process "incredible".

"You do like five, six, seven sessions and they record it in this great big studio in Los Angeles, which is absolutely mental," he said.

"I was out there from January to the end of February [and] Activision took me to their hub, I was a guest for the day, and they took me all around and they showed me the game - you know, these games are like $200 million to produce.

"It's incredible. This place was like the size of 10 factories, there was all these people working."

It's previously been rumoured that Modern Warfare 3 will take the shape of a prequel, starring Fairbrass's character Ghost.
