It was announced today that Call of Duty 6 will actually be Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2.
That’s right kiddos, Activision’s hugely successful Call of Dutyfranchise is spawning another sequel limb with today’s semi-official announcement that Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 is in development and set for release Fall 2009.
The announcement comes from a Microsoft sponsored Massive Inc.upfront where publishers showcase and talk about upcoming products to lineup advertisers prior to release. Activision didn’t have any specifics to announce regarding the title, other than the fact that we’ll be receiving a second helping of Modern Warfare late next year.
Anyone beyond excited for more CoD, especially a sequel to CoD4which is arguably the best of the franchise?
Personally I am excited that they will be staying away from World War 2, and continuing in this new direction. It could almost be considered a new franchise that just happens to be called Call of Duty.
