Like clockwork, Actvision Blizzard has been launching a new version of its Call of Duty combat shooting video game every November. This year will be no different, the company has said.
But game news site Kotaku says it has the first early details on the game, called Call of Duty Modern Warfare 3, scheduled to debut on Nov. 8. Modern Warfare 3 will be the latest installment in a series whose past two titles have been the biggest selling video games of all time. Call of Duty Black Ops generated more than $1 billion in sales for Activision Blizzard.
The next installment is coming from studio Infinity Ward, which was disrupted by a dispute between the studios founders and Activision Blizzards top management. Nevertheless, it looks like the companys military precision on shipping new titles isnt about to be interrupted, thanks to help from Sledgehammer Games and Raven Software, two other Activision studios. This year, Modern Warfare 3 will face stiff competition from Electronic Arts Battlefield 3 combat shooter.
Kotaku says the storyline takes place across a half dozen cities around the world including New York, London and Paris. The game spans 15 missions, starting with the invasion of Manhattan and ending in Dubai. There are multiple characters and storylines and the title wraps up the story that began with the original, Kotaku said.
Activision Blizzard hasnt revealed anything about Modern Warfare 3 yet but is expected to do so at the E3 trade show in June.
