Call of Duty 4 sequel drops the CoD and picks up release date.
Proving to be as successful as it did, it came as little surprise that Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare was getting tapped for a sequel. However, after being announced last December, Activision decided to operate under a bit of radio silence...until today that is. During the Game Developers Conference, the developer and publisher unveiled a short trailer that revealed Modern Warfare 2 – the game's now official title, having dropped the Call of Duty tag – would arrive later this year, on November 10th. Unfortunately, even with the teaser, we still don't have much in the way of information, though we are assuming that the game is in the works for at least the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
