Snippets of what's claimed to be next year's Call of Duty game have been leaked, along with first details for the in-development title.
Voice over recording for the game has begun in LA, according to Siliconera citing an anonymous source (whom the site says leaked Sleeping Dogs details before its Square Enix acquisition) .
CVG has contacted Activision for comment.
'Call of Duty 2013', as the source allegedly called it, will continue the Modern Warfare story arc, with the main protagonist apparently "a battle hardened veteran in his mid-thirties with a nihilistic point of view", codenamed 'Ben Burk'.
One scene in the game - apparently a flashback - is said to feature John 'Soap' MacTavish and take place in Somalia.
Below are what's claimed to be snippets of the script for the main character.
"Reminds you of Phuket, doesn't it? Only this time the dust gives you cancer... OK, park yourself and get ready. When this thing kicks off, put a hole in anything that moves."
"This is Sentinel Zero One, successful crypto change on C2 net break, requesting immediate update of blue force picture and status of artillery, over. I have you broken and unreadable, I say again, requesting updates to friendly positions and status of arty support. Do you read, over?"
"We've got KVA on the move! They're going to strongpoint the main gate, ETA two mikes! We're providing support for our heavy rollers! Ready up and let's move!"
"Goliath, this is Sentinel Zero One! We have enemy armor at the gate, hundred meters north of our position! Requesting close-air grid mark three-one-six!"
Previous reports for what is expected to be 'Modern Warfare 4' hint at a possible next-generation release for 2013's Call of Duty entry.
