A new report suggests the story of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 - thought to be codenamed Project Collossus [sic] and due out 8th November - will be of a much grander scale than previous Modern Warfare games.
As the story unfolds, multiple countries will be drawn in to the conflict, Kotaku heard from a source - creating a potential World War III scenario.
As for a time-line, Modern Warfare 3 apparently starts where MW2 stopped. Urban warfare, where tanks rumble through streets used by cars, will be the game's bread and butter.
We're told that MW2 heroes John "Soap" MacTavish and John Price "may" return.
Like Battlefield 3, Modern Warfare 3 will focus heavily on destruction of scenery and objects.
The world expects Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 to be unveiled at E3 next month.
