Infinity Ward says Modern Warfare 3 is the ‘payoff’ to the investment players have put in since Call of Duty 4

Posted on July 15, 2011 AT 03:54pm

Speaking to Joystiq editor Ben Gilbert today at a preview event, Infinity Ward’s creative strategist Robert Bowling spoke about the importance of the storyline not only in Modern Warfare 3, but what’s run through the entire series.

On the topic of the “Task Force 141″ storyline:

“For the single-player campaign, especially for Modern Warfare 3 more than ever — this is the payoff for the investment that people have put in since Call of Duty 4.”

On what they learned coming out of Modern Warfare 2:

“Every game we put out, we sit back and we look at ‘What can we do better? What areas can we focus on to bump the experience up?’ And story was one of those coming out of MW2.”

On the topic of the “No Russian” mission from MW2:

“‘No Russian’ was a key story point for MW2. It’s what really solidified Makarov as the villain that he is. It delivered the experience that we want it to deliver, that’s why it always was in there from the start — because we’re telling a story and we’re developing these characters, and that was an important stage in Makarov’s development.”
