Modern Warfare 3: Release Date and Development Update

By Alan Ng - Jan 24, 2011

We have an update for the millions of you waiting for news on the next Call of Duty: Modern Warfare game, as it has been recently reported by the LA Times that Modern Warfare 3 will be co-developed and will release towards the end of 2011.

As reported from VG247, we are hearing that well known series developers Infinity Ward will be assisted in the development department by Sledgehammer Games, which you may remember are company being signed on by Activision to develop a ‘action adventure’ Call of Duty game this year.

We don’t know if the two games are still separate, as we havent heard any details on Sledgehammer Games’ CoD title since this report we wrote last year. As for Modern Warfare 3, how do you feel about Infinity Ward developing the game with another company?

The move may be unsuprising to a lot of you, as if you have been keeping up to date with your gaming news, you’ll know that most of Infinity Ward’s staff quit last year after a bustup with Activision, with many of them jumping ship to EA to form Respawn Entertainment.

Back to MW3 though, and we’re hearing that the game is still on course for a release this November – Modern Warfare 2 released November 10th last year, just to refresh your memories.

There are more details on this story over at VG247. Give us your thoughts on the Modern Warfare 3 project.
