What. The. Hell. As part of GDC 2009, Activision and Infinity Ward debuted the trailer for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, which is a direct sequel to Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare (which came out in 2007 and is not to be confused with Treyarch’s 2008 game, Call of Duty: World at War). But what the hell is this in the trailer? It doesn’t look like a COD game, nor does it even have the name anymore.
The trailer doesn’t show much, but it teases an elevator, an airport, and plenty of shooting and explosions. And if the game’s title didn’t make it obvious, this isn’t set in World War II.
Oh yeah, the game will be released November 10.
But the game’s lack of Call of Duty prefix, along with the puzzling (albeit limited) footage is making me wonder if Infinity Ward built this game from the ground up, and changed everything EVERYBODY loved about COD4 and World at War.
I sure hope not.
