Rumor Roundup: A New Matrix Trilogy? Near-Future CoD: Modern Warfare?


When the Internet runs out of news, it starts making things up. We think this is funny, so we round up all the lies and speculation and put them here. We call it the "Rumor Roundup" and we do it all for you! This week:

Gizmonic Institute
  • Is Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 4 Being Set in "The Near Future"?
    So, characters will use the iPhone 6S, instead of the 5S?! How "next Sunday, A.D." of them! [Game Rant]

  • Will Titanfall Feature 15 Maps and 5 Modes?
    Sounds like the time I went on a 15-state pie tour without my GPS (I needed 15 maps to get five a la modes!) [Ubergizmo]

Joaquin Phoenix in Her
  • Will Apple's Next iOS Update Make Siri Smarter?
    It then promptly falls in love with Joaquin Phoenix. [Design & Trend]

  • Is Microsoft Planning a Free Version of Windows 8.1 with Bing?
    Here's how I imagine a consumer will parse this sentence: Free Windows [oooh!] 8.1 [oh...] with Bing [ugh]. Though, free is free and people love free. Though, Bing is Bing and people hate Bing. [The Verge]

Keanu Reeves
  • Is There a New Matrix Trilogy in the Works?
    Or maybe it's the first trilogy again, and we've just hit a glitch in the Matrix! To paraphrase Keanu: Whoa. [Latino Review]

  • Is the Mother From How I Met Your Mother Dead?
    This is clearly not true or they would have titled the series, How I Met Your Dead Mother. Duh. TV can't lie about things like that, it's illegal. (Unless the question is whether or not the actress who plays the mom is a ghost, because that's totally plausible. #GhostMom) [Fashion Times]
