Is Iron Wolf The Next Call of Duty Game?
Iron Wolf, an apparent codename for the next game in the Call of Duty series, has been allegedly leaked over Xbox Live.
The game is rumoured to be currently in development at Treyarch, which suggests it could be the 2012 entry to the series.
The leak came after an Xbox forum post went live yesterday, together with alleged screen shots of someone at Treyarch playing the game over Xbox Live.
The jury is still out on this one, as it seems unlikely that Treyarch would openly test the game on a retail Xbox console, and in public no less.
However, the codename Iron Wolf does fit into both the Call of Duty canon, and the Black Ops timeline.
Iron Wolf is a Lithuanian special ops unit that was formed in 1991, after the decline of the Soviet empire. The events leading up to the unit’s formation were triggered by the cold war, an era that featured prominently in Black Ops.
This suggests that the alleged game will focus on the downfall of Soviet Russia between the end of Black Ops in 1963, all the way through the Nixon and Reagan presidencies and the final years of the Vietnam conflict.
