It's quite uncommon for an FPS game to have an absolutely awesome single player mode, and Infinity Ward's Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare (PC, Sony PS3, Microsoft Xbox 360) definitely delivered in that oft-ignored part of an FPS title package. Now, we catch wind that while the developers don't quite have plans for downloadable content for the single-player campaign, it's pretty much in their reach to dole out some.
This comes directly from one of Infinity Ward's programmers, namely Jon Shiring. His statement, verbatim: "I wouldn't rule it out but we don't have any plans for that right now."
The reason for this, Jon Shiring explains, is that developers tend to release new multiplayer content instead of single player content when it comes to FPS titles. It makes sense, given the competitive nature of the genre. But - and it's a resounding but - when it comes to Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, Shiring stated that the upcoming DLC was in direct response to community requests, and not just because of the inherent multiplayer aspect of the game.
This means, then, that if players want to get more out of the Single Player Campaign, then all we have to do is to demand it. It's not all that hard, and the devs DO listen (as proven by the incoming DLC), so let's hope for it, shall we?
As for the upcoming DLC, here are a few details: the Xbox 360 version will be getting its joy come April 4, while the PS3 version a full 21 days after (that's April 25). No news yet about the PC version, but it's a safe bet that it will be pretty unique from the console versions. Here's hoping so, in any case. Updates as we get them!
