Mike Hickey of research firm Janco Partners has stated his belief that the chaps at Sledgehammer Games are currently hard at work on the next chapter in the Modern Warfare series as opposed to Infinity Ward.

Writing in a research note earlier today, Hickey said that he expects Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 to show up at some point during the 2011 fiscal year, which puts the game on store shelves by March 31, 2012.

Unsurprisingly, the analyst also reckons the sequel will turn in a stellar performance at retail, forecasting sales of 18+ million copies globally.

Said Hickey: "We believe Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 will be released in fiscal '11, likely developed by Sledgehammer Games, and could sell in excess of +18 million units."

As many are no doubt aware, series creator Infinity Ward ran in to quite a spot of trouble earlier this year, with Internet gossip claiming that up to a whopping 50 percent of staff were believed to have quit the company.

Sledgehammer Games is known to be working on a title in the Call of Duty universe, though according to Activision itíll take the form of an action-adventure title, prompting widespread speculation that itíll deviate from the traditional first-person antics of previous entries.

Despite this, one only has to have a quick butcherís at the firmís official website to find out that itís "currently in production on a Call of Duty FPS game."

Elsewhere, Hickey reckons an online-only Call of Duty outing will be released in China around the same time, with a Bungie-developed MMO title arriving some time during the next financial year.

Stay tuned for more developments on the Call of Duty franchise here at PSU as they break.

Maybe people will now buy games not called Call of Duty. And the Video game world will go back to normal. That's just thinking that gamers are smart though and we know Impulse buying is how most people shop for games. If you can hype a game up it don't matter how much it sucks, Its gonna be good in the eyes of the beholder.

Yea that's not gonna happen look at halo. I do think that if treyarch bombs Black Ops it will really hurt Modern Warfare 3. In a lot of ppl's eyes Black Ops is the Saviour to MW2. Course i don't have a problem with MW2 sure it could be less annoying but hey it's still fun to play with friends.
