Infinity Ward: Length Of Modern Warfare 3 Will Be dictated By Story

Infinity Ward’s Robert Bowling was asked how long the campaign of Modern Warfare 3 will last, and although he didn’t give an answer because the game isn’t completed, he did say the length will be determined by the story, and nothing else.

“Modern Warfare 3 is big,” Bowling told Gamefront in an interview posted below. “It has that epic single player campaign and it’s all about taking players places they’ve never been before.”

“Our philosophy on the campaign has always [been] the same. We never set out … to make X hours of game time. We write a story and the story dictates the length.”

He continued, adding that he couldn’t give a definite length because the game isn’t completed.

“The game’s not finished yet. I can’t say it’s X amount of hours cause we don’t know.”

He made clear that fans won’t be disappointed, however.

“Coming out of Modern Warfare 2, we did have this very big vision, and a lot of that was a by-product of having the 25, 30 million players that we have.

So Modern Warfare 3 is about the fans – in every aspect of the game.”

Modern Warfare 3 comes out on November 8th for PS3, Xbox 360 and PC.

    “We’re listening to everything they are saying”?? We have been saying DEDICATED SERVERS forever. Doesn’t mean you are going to give 2 $hits.
    I know there has been talk but I wish they would just come out and do it.

    Agreed. I hope they do – and it would be nice if the campaign’s longer that 4hrs….Just saying…

    one thing i wish they would change in this is the constant character and time line changes.
    gets really confusing, one minute your one character at the white house, then the next minute your in russia as another character, then the next minute your back at the white house.
    had absolutely no idea what the %$#@ was going on in MW2, i liked BOs idea of constant flashbacks, but jumping from character to character, storyline to storyline, gets really confusing!
    dont have to play as one character, but at least let us play out his part, then go back and play someone else path and so on.
    that way your not sitting there confused trying to remember what happened last time you played as this character.

    I’m really looking forward to this game – and where it takes us!
