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!
