FourZeroTwo confirms online splitscreen multiplayer in MW3

Infinity Ward’s Creative Strategist, Robert Bowling (aka FourZeroTwo), has been using Twitter religiously to reveal details regarding Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, earlier today he confirmed that there will be a sneaky way to avoid Bouncing Betty deaths and in the past he told us there would be no Last Stand Perk, no currency system, C4 strapped dogs and new game modes – now we have confirmation of something else.

Recently FourZeroTwo was tweeted with a message which read “Looking forward to #MW3 ( even more than #BF3) – but I assume it won’t have splitscreen multiplayer online ( @fourzerotwo can’t confirm it”, which was a follow-up from another tweet he left saying “is there support for online splitscreen multiplayer? Love playing together with my wife” sure enough roughly 13 hours ago FourZeroTwo replied, he said:

I can confirm it, #MW3 does have online splitscreen multiplayer. Your wife will be very happy.

Lots of, if not all, Call of Duty games have given gamers the option to play offline game modes using split screen, however Black Ops is arguably the best in terms of its online split screen multiplayer functionality – it looks like Infinity Ward and Sledgehammer Games have seen the success of online splitscreen multiplayer in Black Ops and jumped on the bandwagon – which is great.

To be honest with you I personally am not a huge fan of splitscreening, especially when playing first-person shooters, however it is nice when a friend or family member can come over and play certain games simultaneously so we are sure that this news will be welcomed by most people – that said some people do use splitscreen for boosting or “dirty tactics” so we are sure some people will be annoyed to hear this.

We would love to hear your opinion on this matter, are you happy to hear that online splitscreen multiplayer will be available in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3? Or do you think this is a mistake? Let us know in the comments section below.

    Never used it and frankly I don’t give a dam whether they do or don’t, it’s certainly not for me as of now!!!

      That’s probably because you don’t have any REAL friends but only online virtual friends. You seem like a loser. Split screen is awesome!

    Love the splitscreen option so I can play with my son. I do think it is kind of crappy that you can’t dual login on PS3 so when my son plays on my profile all he accomplishes is totally wasted.

    Im so glad that they do, but as stated before me it would be better if the second player could log on into their own account.

    • Stanley_hendricks12

      that is wat i think too

    • Ttrebuchon

      they can…

      • Barbwire3334

        They can on xbox but what about on ps3

  • JAKEMATIKKI

    YEAAAAHAHAHAHAHAHHAH !! !WOOOOO !!!

  • mario

  • Fred

    keep the splitscreen i like it

    • Stanley_hendricks12

      i play with my brothers on black ops and it is super fun

  • Stanley_hendricks12

    i think online splitscreening is the coolest thing ever, and now that i know mw3 will be one of the first new games we buy.

  • Stanley_hendricks12

    And to make the splitscreen better mw3 should let the guest on split-screen use there own account

    • Ttrebuchon

      …like they already do?

  • Strongone912

    Good to know, was pleasantly surprised when we realized we could multiplayer splitscreen on Black Ops since we would always have to take turns between my husband and I on the previous MWs.  Neither one of us has to be out of the action now…..we get so little time to play since we wait for the little ones to go to bed first.  Wish we could play all day……

  • T McRoy

    Love this idea. I was very happy to see this confirmed as I have been debating on buying MW3 vs. Battlefield 3 after hearing this I will probably be buying MW3 and keep the gf happy so we can still play together without having to buy another TV and console.

  • Whiteblazz

    Me and my wife are both vary happy with this now we both can play and wont have to take turns lol ;)

  • Sov Brains

    im glad because i wld have to take turns with my borther
