When it was announced that the latest instalment in the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare series will once again make it to a Nintendo handheld, some were left scratching their heads as to why the game was being developed for the DS and not the 3DS.

When fans took to the developer's Facebook page and asked why Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3: Defiance wasn't being developed specifically for the 3DS instead, n-Space's response was:

You guys all need to understand that we make the games we are hired to make. It is not our call to decide which platforms to support. Obviously we are big 3DS fans and supporters as we have 3 titles in development. If it were as simple as us choosing what products and platforms to develop for I would get a lot more sleep.

n-Space has had plenty of experience in the past with handheld versions of Activision's war-themed first-person shooter series; from Call of Duty: Modern Warfare: Mobilized to Call of Duty: Black Ops, the studio has also developed a number of licensed video game adaptations based on Hollywood films: Star Wars Battlefront: Elite Squadron, Toy Story 3: The Video Game, GoldenEye 007 and TRON: Evolution DS.

Joining Heroes of Ruin and Jaws: Ultimate Predator will be a third n-Space 3DS game and until the game's official announcement is made, all we know about it is that it won't be a FPS.
