GDC: Activision Confirms November Debut For Modern Warfare 2

The first teaser trailer for Infinity Ward’s Modern Warfare 2, shown after the Game Developers Choice Awards, has confirmed a November 10th release date for the hit sequel.
The first teaser trailer for Infinity Ward’s Modern Warfare 2 has confirmed that publisher Activision intends to release the game on November 10th of this year. A pre-Christmas, 2009 release date had been widely anticipated but the trailer, which was shown immediately following the Game Developers Choice Awards yesterday, was the first time Activision has publically referred to the game. Unexpectedly, the trailer makes no mention of the Call of Duty brand, suggested perhaps that Activision intends to spin-off the Modern Warfare name as a separate series. No other information has been released on the game, including confirmation of the platforms supported. The trailer does not appear to show any gameplay footage, hinting only of a terrorist attack at an airport. Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, the last game in the franchise to be developed by series creators Infinity Ward, has been an enormous success for Activision, with numerous critical awards and over 14 million online players on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
