Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 News

Activision CFO Thomas Tippl at the Wedbush Morgan Securities annual meeting:

"Last year we had probably beaten most expert expectations by growing the Call of Duty franchise over the tremendous success that was the first iteration of Modern Warfare," he said. "For 2009, Modern Warfare is coming back, we expect it will be the most anticipated game of the year. Perhaps the number one game of the year despite the fact that it's only going to launch in the holiday season...There is no doubt in my mind that it will again raise the bar for the shooter genre. The game is looking incredible and Infinity Ward, the studio that is developing it, is just doing an unbelievable job."

So, there you have it, for all that were worried that the game might not make it by the holidays, you can breathe a sigh of relief. Here's looking forward to this one as I'm sure most of you are.
