Something warfare related and modern is going on with Infinity Ward as they tweeted a teasing picture of Call of Duty notable, Captain Price. "Brace yourselves. Price is coming," read the accompanying caption.

The LeakAlot LinkedIn profile for a senior VFX artist at Sledgehammer Games mentions they're working on "photo real visual effects" for the "next Call of Duty - Modern Warfare release"; it's been edited since.
