On May 30, Infinity Ward’s Call of Duty: Modern Warfare was announced, which is coming on all platforms on October 25.
As you may know, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is a soft reboot of Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare. The reboot will include new characters along with some old ones. It has been confirmed that Captain Price and John ‘Soap’ McTavish are making a return in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare. But, it has been revealed that these characters will be a younger version of what they were used to be. That said, it comes as no surprise, that Captain Price will be voiced over by new voice actors.

This has been confirmed by Call of Duty: Modern Warfare’s narrative director, Taylor Kurosaki. He revealed that Barry Sloane will be the new voice actor for Captain Price in the game. Moreover, he also confirmed that Sloane will sound like a younger Price with his own spin on it.
Kurosaki said, “Rather than trying to replicate [him], which actor looks like Price? Which actor sounds like the old Price? It’s like, no, which actor has the sense of Price? Which actor embodies the spirit of a guy who’s rogue, of a guy who bends the rules, of a guy who works in the shadows to get shit done.”
According to the game’s campaign gameplay director, Jacob Minkoff, Barry Sloane will be perfect as Price’s new voice actor because he has undergone actual Navy SEAL training. He said, “Barry Sloane has gone through an equivalent of BUD/S [Basic Underwater Demolition/SEAL training. Navy SEAL training, which is just incredibly difficult. I would die. Literally, not figuratively,” said Minkoff.
Taylor Kurosaki also told about how Sloane has prepared to give the voice over. He said that Sloane played every Modern Warfare to understand the character better. This will put him in a position where it will be easier for him to give a new spin, of his own, to the character.
