Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 4 to launch on next-gen consoles?

Developer hints expected Modern Warfare 4 release will hit either Xbox 720 or PS4

Adding to the Xbox 720 and PS4 rumour mills, a leaked developer CV has suggested a Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 4 release will hit next-gen consoles

As the eagerly awaited Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 release date (opens in new tab) nears, new reports have suggested Activision's (opens in new tab) next COD offering, the widely expected but as yet unconfirmed Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 4, will launch across current and next-generation consoles.

Further stoking the longstanding speculation that surrounds the repeatedly called for Xbox 720 (opens in new tab) and Sony PS4 (opens in new tab) release dates, latest reports have suggested Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 4 could be one of the first titles to hit the new platforms.

Leaking via yet another overzealous developer CV, lead software engineer and project manager with Infinity Ward (opens in new tab), Andrew Aye, has teased the potential MW4 next-gen console release without offering any indication as to whether the new platform will be coming from Sony (opens in new tab) or Microsoft (opens in new tab).

Referring to the game only as an 'unannounced title,' Aye has revealed that what is widely expected to be a direct Modern Warfare 3 follow-on will be made available at launch for "XB2 (Xbox 360), PS3, PC DX11," platforms as well as a mysterious "TBA" console.

Thanks to Activision's formulaic annual Call of Duty release patterns, it is expected that Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 4 will launch in November 2013, an arrival that would likely see either an Xbox 720 or PS4 unveiling at June's E3 2013 showcase.
