Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 revealed!

Earlier tonight Infinity Ward gave gamers the first glimpse of Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 at the Developer Choice Awards. Activision Blizzard officially announced the game in February earlier this year.

Sharp-eyed gamers following Geoff Keighley (GameTrailers) and Robert Bowling (Infinity Ward) on Twitter were teased throughout the day on what was to be announced. Earlier in the day the official teaser website for Modern Warfare 2 went live. The website offered no details about the game, with only an image of an oscilloscope reading displayed.

Modern Warfare 2 is the sequel to the hugely popular 2007 game, released on Xbox 360, Playstation 3 and PC/Mac.

Not much is known about the new sequel, however Bowling gave a brief insight to his work, blogging he was reviewing some of the script in February. Voice actor Ken Lally has also previously announced he will be providing voice work for the game, however he never mentioned what his role entails.

The trailer features the same oscilloscope style featured on the teaser website. Its not eniterly clear what is happening but terrorist can be heard loading their weapons in an elevator of a terminal building (possibly an airport) and firing weapons into a crowd of people. The rest of the trailer has flashing images of what could be possible locations which feature in the game and the release date November 10th 2009.

Sweet. Hopefully this doesn't turn into a huge hype-machine that lands flat. Infinity Ward has a good chance of making this into my favorite game of all time. To the devs: if it ain't broke, don't fix it.

Well I think the graphical engine would need a bit of updating and I hope they won't make this a prequel like some people speculate, following Capt. Price and others in earlier missions.

I hope they steer clear of Nov 10th. Its too close to armistice day (remembrance day) and that would be pretty poor taste.

Don't forget that they're American. It looks very likely that it'll be November 10th. It wouldn't be the first time a game of this kind was released this close to Remembrance Day. Halo 2 was released over here exactly on November 11th.

"11/10/09" is November 10, 2009.

I still don't understand why people write dates as dd/mm/yyyy. Do those people really say "today is ten November 2009" instead of "today is November 10th 2009"? It just don't make any sense.

No, we say today is the 10th day of November in the year of our lord 2009

Because its logical that it should go from smallest to largest.

In my excitement, I created a topic regarding this debut teaser in the Gamer's Hangout. My apologies! I should have checked here first.

That's ok. This is news though, people can discuss it in the forums.

Looking forward to the game but that is a bad teaser.

Indeed. Hopefully they add some usable vehicles at some stage in the game. It's one of let downs of call of duty compared to like BF2.
