I saw later that it wasn't true. Activision or Infinity Ward said it or something, not sure who. Of course, they also could be blatantly lying.
I saw the same thing on Twitter. Someone asked Activision Support if it was true and they said don't believe everything you hear on the internet. I can see how an actor could let it slip up, it sounds credible. I would like to see them go back to a World War II setting for the next one.
If infinity ward release another COD I won't be getting it. Mw3 was really bad. I still play blops more than mw3.
