At its fourth quarter earnings call today, Activision has confirmed, unsurprisingly, that a new Call of Duty game will be released later this year - the ninth such title, excluding spin-offs and compilations, in the most successful game series of all time.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 generated gross revenues of $775 million in its first five days after worldwide release, breaking previous sales records set by Call of Duty: Black Ops this time last year.
As anticipation mounts over Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3's near-global release on November 8th, Activision, the game's publisher, has released this live action trailer featuring Jonah Hill, Dwight Howard and Sam Worthington.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 has been confirmed for release this autumn and will directly continue on from where the storyline left off in the second-last installation, Modern Warfare 2, of the hugely successful game franchise. Last year’s release, Call of Duty: Black Ops, was the most successful game of all time, breaking opening day sales records and grossing $360 million in its first twenty-four hours alone, exceeding Modern Warfare 2 sales by $50 million.
