GDC 09: Modern Warfare 2 Confirmed For November 10

We had all heard the whispers, but now we finally have the official confirmation and to go along with it, a debut teaser that has revealed the game's scheduled release date!

Modern Warfare 2 was unveiled at the conclusion of the Game Developers Conference Awards, and although Infinity Ward is apparently still "figuring out the branding" (i.e., whether or not to include "Call of Duty" in the title), we've got the info we want: this hotly anticipated sequel is set for November 10, 2009. Check out the brand new debut teaser and you will see the answer for yourself, even though you won't spot much else in that video. It appears they're not ready to give out any inside looks at the gameplay just yet, but hey, they've already given us the original Modern Warfare, which was the fourth CoD entry. We're positive that you all remember just how awesome CoD4 was, which means you have plenty of faith in this particular developer. Last year's World at War by Treyarch was another excellent installment in the critically acclaimed Call of Duty series, but Infinity Ward is destined to raise the bar once again.

As soon as we can locate more details and info for Modern Warfare 2, we'll be sure to tell you all about 'em. We figure you can expect more weapons and more intensity - just as a general rule of thumb for most FPS sequels - but beyond that, it's all up in the air. Stay tuned!

i loved cod4, liked codWaW, but MW2 will blow them all away! i think they should call it cod though... cuz its still cod any way u put it (unless they are drastically upgrading the gameplay mechanics and engine... then it could classify as a whole different series)

AWESOME!!!!

I have never been let down by a call of duty game in my life. One of my most favorite PS2 games is the console version of COD2.

A friend of mine says that the guns in COD5 sucked, because they look like squares. My other friends tell him it's because he always uses the tommy gun and the colt .45 :P
(We're such dorks, it's not even funny though)

I didn't like the teaser either but it was certainly provocative. Terrorist takeover of an airport? Was that language Chinese? Did someone say "Remember no Russian" (as in the language, i assume)? Interesting way to get people thinking about the story, but it doesn't hold a candle to the amazing debut trailer CoD4 had. Hopefully they bring the triple A stuff at E3.

Kind of like the Splinter Cell feel it had though...just through the images I was seeing in my head.

-A little?
-HaHa. Now we'll be right back after a word from our sponsors.

Imagine the above being read by the two most annoyingly cliche baseball commentators you can imagine. That kind of crap runs through my head on a regular basis.

Honestly on a scale of 1-10 how weird is that. 10 being the most weird.

i dont know how many times ive seen the "not another ww2 game" statement. its those kind of comments that get old, not the game. at the end of the day you dont have to buy a game if you dont want it.

but this one really takes the piss. Read the title..."MODERN Warfare"....lol

im guessing you havent had your coffee yet :)

is it possible we can see a killzone 2 killer (graphically wise)??

personally, i say no... just because its multiplat... ps3 has a handicap because the 360's max settings is the limit 4 the game...

either way, im wondering how the console cryteck3 will compare to the pc counterpart...

killzone 2 takes more skill... cod is basically an "Anyone can pick up and own" game, while killzone takes more skill, and actually forces you to be tactical.

cough terrible online, no party system cough

Anyways, people complaining about the teaser -- what were you expecting? Three minutes of gameplay footage, and a virtual woman who came out of your monitor to massage your balls?
It's a teaser, it did it's job - it gave you the name of the game, the release date, and it TEASED.
At the very least, people who have never heard of/played this series (i.e. Pygmy tribes in Madagascar) will be intrigued by the unconventional visual style of the teaser.

Terrible Online?? You can't be serious..last time I checked it wasn't the only online FPS that has no party system. Now if you wanna talk about "party system" then the best in that regards is Resistance 2. No other game streams together the online matches non stop like KZ2. Easy to join a friends game and everything. Sounds like some hating to me.

Don't get me wrong though I enjoyed every single bit of the first MW. Only thing I knock KZ2 on is the ranking system b/c it feels kind of limited. The teaser did do its justice though.

Iono godslim although I do respect your opinion. But I do think the gameplay is definitely in favor KZ2. I mean cod4 was just so damn addictive. But now KZ2 gameplay is better.

Now KZ2 was in the making for a very long time. So I expected it to be better the cod4. I really hope MW2 steps it up to the level KZ2. At the same time I wish we wouldnt keep getting a COD title shoved down our throats every single year. Take time and make it the best it can be.

I think the teaser did a great job, and I also got the impression that the whole green sound waves morphing into images of people was some kind of sound-based surveillance system (a mega-sonar if you will) that images people inside closed rooms based on the sound waves from their voices - kinda like how Marvel superhero Daredevil does it in the movie. It would explain why the whole thing was shown in green. Anyone got the same idea?
