The MW3 cut credits scene appears 13 years later and changes the ending

May 19, 2024 by No Comments


Modern Warfare 3 (2011) is the ultimate conclusion to one of the greatest trilogy in the history of the franchise. It’s a monumental run from start to finish, taking players from COD 4: Modern Warfare in 2007 to the grand finale in 2011’s MW3. In between, we were blessed to receive Modern Warfare 2, which is widely regarded as the best Call of Duty game (maybe behind Black Ops).

Now, thirteen years after Modern Warfare 3’s release, a cut post-credits scene has emerged online that showcases a subtle change that brings a very different ending to the 2011 game.


Small but mighty

At the end of Modern Warfare 3, Captain Price finally thwarts Vladimir Makarov, getting justice in the most poetic (and brutal) way possible. As he sits back and marvels at his work, he pulls out his trademark cigar, lights up, and then the screen fades to black, the game simply walking away, signaling the end of the trilogy.

However, in a new clip that has surfaced online – which is a total of 60 seconds long – we see the same sequence unfold, but with a few minor differences.

Across the room, we see a shadowy, suited figure appear, which many claim is a representation of death. Captain Price’s identity is never ascertained as he loses his grip on his cigar and tumbles to the ground, taking in the scene before him, and again the game fades into obscurity. We see a picture of the four key characters we’ve followed through the trilogy, a reality of meeting their untimely end.

Only Infinity Ward knows the identity of this figure, as the content was eventually cut from the game and has not seen the light of day until now.
