Update by Ahmed Mosly: here’s the official non-revealing teaser trailer. At least Infinity Ward acknowledges the sequel’s existence.
Kotaku has a whole set of stories up this morning that reveal just about everything there is to reveal about the forthcoming Modern Warfare 3. Infinity Ward, Sledgehammer Games and Raven Software are hard at work on putting the finishing touches on what will surely be one of the biggest games of 2011. Instead of regurgitating what Kotaku wrote, I recommend you hit up the link provided. I strongly believe in giving credit where credit is due and these guys went out of their way to get their sources to talk and to compile all the information leaked in one tidy location. That said, I also like to give our readers the latest and greatest news so I’ve compiled everything together in point form for your reading pleasure.
– Projected release date: November 8th, 2011 for every platform you can imagine.
– Game begins seconds after Modern Warfare 2.
– Players will play in various locations around the world including New York, Paris, London and Dubai.
– There are currently 15 missions in the single-player campaign
– Online multiplayer returns and bigger and badder than ever before
Every other article Kotaku has up reveal tons of spoilers and to be frank, I really don’t want to spoil the game for myself. If you’re interested hit this link. Remember, it is filled with spoilers and could ruin your enjoyment of a potentially awesome title. You’ve been warned.
I know a lot of people have said they’re getting tired of the yearly releases, but the honest truth is these games are the biggest sellers in the industry and show no signs of slowing down anytime soon. While we might talk the talk, we don’t walk the walk. I have little doubt that if everything turns out as planned, this could break the record set by Black Ops only because of all the intrigue and mystery surrounding the game. Are you interested in Modern Warfare 3 and if so, will you be there on day one?
