According to recent reports, specifically one from Bloomberg, the recently released FPS Call of Duty: Modern Warfare III was developed in only 16 months, with many developers working tirelessly to release it. However, Sledgehammer Games studio head Aaron Halon took to Twitter to refute these reports stating they are “simply not true.” He also stated that the team “have worked hard to deliver on this vision which has been years in the making.” Modern Warfare III is available now for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC via Steam and Battle Net. The game sports several new features such as the new open world zombies mode, several new maps, new multiplayer modes and more.

The full statement reads:
“We’re incredibly proud of Modern Warfare III – both the full game experience at launch and the upcoming year of content we have planned for the community. On behalf of the extremely talented team across Sledgehammer Games and our partner studios with whom we’ve collaborated on development, this has been a labor of love to lead the first ever back-to-back sequel in Call of Duty. We cannot wait to see our community’s reaction to all that the entire game has to offer, across Campaign, Multiplayer and Zombies.
From the start of development, we have all been laser focused on creating the next groundbreaking Call of Duty game. Long before we wrapped up our previous game, we heard loud and clear from fans about the desire to stay and play together for longer within the same series. And that’s what we’ve delivered – the first true sequel in franchise history. It is also why we added features like Carry Forward for the first time to honor the investment our players have made in the Modern Warfare series.
We’re proud to be the team to lead the way on Modern Warfare III. We have worked hard to deliver on this vision which has been years in the making. Anything said to the contrary is simply not true – this is our game and we cannot wait to play it online with all of you.”
