    The biggest news from Activision's countersuit filed this morning against former Infinity Ward executives Jason West and Vince Zampella is the mentioning of Modern Warfare 3.

    According to the countersuit,both Jason West and Vince ampella entered into a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU),which is an agreement between two parties, with Activision and Infinity Ward in connection with Modern Warfare 2 and "any subsequent Infinity Ward projects" back in March 2008. This MOU apparently also includes certain rights for Modern Warfare 3, which Activision says in its countersuit that development for the third title was delayed intentionally by West and Zampella in order to leverage their rights under the MOU to "obtain further advantages for themselves and concessions" from Activision.

    The countersuit states "West and Zampella contend that, pursuant to the MOU, so long as they were employed at IW, their written consent was required for certain decisions related to the Modern Warfare brand,".

    "As a result of the implied covenant of good faith and fair dealing, West and Zampella were prohibited from withholding such consent unreasonably or in bad faith."

    "Nevertheless, prior to the termination of their employment with Activision, West and Zampella unreasonably and/or in bad faith refused to provide this consent in an effort to gain an unfair advantage in negotiations with Activision and in an improper attempt to gain an advantage for themselves in connection with their plan to leave Activision and establish their own company," the suit states.

    "Among other things, they delayed pre-production of Modern Warfare 3 and attempted to improperly leverage their rights under the MOU to obtain further advantages for themselves and concessions from Activision."

    The countersuit then continues on to say Activision has had to spend some additional development costs for the project due to Zampella and West breaching the MOU.

    "As a direct and proximate result of this breach of the covenant of good faith and fair dealing, Activision has been forced to commit additional resources to Modern Warfare 3, institute litigation to seek a declaration of rights, and incur costs and attorneys' fees, and will incur additional expenses in connection with securing the benefits of the MOU."

    "Accordingly, Activision has been damaged as a result of West and Zampella's actions in an amount to be proven at trial."

    I bet they'll make it a 2d shooter similar to the original metal gear. Just say "Here's your game. Have fun." and leave.

    But seriously I think It might be like CODMW2 but with some improvements,more like a MW 2.5,or they could go all guns blazing and profoundly astonish us with an amazing game.. either way,it will be controversial

    What they should do is just make it like Battlefield, so no kill streaks, no silly perks, lots of weapons with many attachments. I don't mind if they make separate classes like Battlefield or if they include vehicles, just make it fun and explosive.

    Oh and no stupid knifing from a mile away.

    But you get me,make it super realistic,not a kids game,battlefeild sounds about right.

    The thing is,modern warfare is a buzz word these days,its just something 'cool' one of them "hey everyones doing it" sort of thing, people play it for the sake of it

    There's no way they're going to change it dramatically -- the way they have the game working now makes it the best selling game of the generation. Partly the reason why there was drama -- IW wanted to move on, Activison want to continue raping the franchise. Activision have just made more money with a map pack than most developers will make with one whole game.
